Weekend four to watch

There's a big weekend of football coming up in the SPFL - here are a few of the key fixtures to look out for...

Hibernian v Heart of Midlothian - Ladbrokes Premiership
It's the first Edinburgh derby of the season at Easter Road on Sunday, live on Sky Sports with a 3.00pm kick-off. Both teams are looking for a boost after poor starts to the campaign - Hibs are in ninth place and Hearts are bottom of the table. None of the Edinburgh derbies were won by the home side last year, with two away wins and two draws.

Partick Thistle v Dunfermline Athletic - Ladbrokes Championship
Thistle have parted company with manager Gary Caldwell after their disappointing start to the season. Both they and Dunfermline are without a win so far, having picked up two points apiece from five matches, so the importance of Saturday's encounter at the Energy Check Stadium at Firhill is obvious.

East Fife v Dumbarton - Ladbrokes League 1
Darren Young's East Fife are unbeaten and two points clear of Raith Rovers, with title favourites Falkirk a point further back in third spot. The Methil men will be aiming to keep their good run going against a Sons team who have won three and lost three.

Elgin City v Cove Rangers - Ladbrokes League 2
Cove are the leading scorers in the SPFL with 21 goals and they enjoy a three-point lead over Edinburgh City. Paul Hartley's side are away to an Elgin City team who are looking to bounce back from last week's defeat to Stirling Albion.
