Tuesday preview

Premiership play-offs begin, big night in League 1 & League 2

Scottish Premiership play-offs
There's a Fife derby in the Premiership play-off quarter-final as Dunfermline Athletic face Raith Rovers in the first leg after ending their Championship campaigns in fourth and third on Friday night. The second leg takes place at Stark's Park on Saturday, with the winners taking on Dundee - who finished second in the table - in the semi-final on May 12 & 15.

Scottish League 1
Partick Thistle clinched the title on Thursday when they thrashed Falkirk 5-0 at Firhill and they conclude their campaign against Montrose at Links Park on Tuesday. Stewart Petrie's side can still reach the play-offs but need to beat Ian McCall's men to have a chance of overhauling Falkirk. The Bairns are away to an Airdrieonians side who, along with Cove Rangers, have already sealed a top-four berth. A draw should be enough for Falkirk to join them.

In the bottom half, Dumbarton occupy the relegation play-off place but a win at home to Peterhead would lift them above Clyde, who don't play until Thursday. Relegated Forfar Athletic host sixth-placed East Fife in the other game.

Scottish League 2
Queen's Park have already been crowned champions and Edinburgh City sealed a play-off place at the weekend. There are two play-off spots up for grabs and it could hardly be closer between the three teams involved - Stirling Albion currently occupy third place but have completed their fixtures. Draws for Elgin City, who host Queen's Park, and Stranraer, who entertain Edinburgh City, would be enough for both teams to pip the Binos on goals scored as the sides would be level on points and goal difference.

In the bottom half, Brechin City, well adrift at the foot of the table, take on Stenhousemuir at Glebe Park and Cowdenbeath are up against Albion Rovers at Central Park.
