There’s a huge weekend of football coming up across all four divisions, with a Helicopter Saturday double and a title chance for Celtic on Sunday.
Here’s a look at how things are shaping up…
Celtic will seal a seventh successive title if they beat Rangers at Parkhead on Sunday, live on Sky Sports at 12 noon. A draw will suffice for Brendan Rodgers’ side if Aberdeen fail to take full points against Hearts in the Friday night game at Pittodrie.
St Mirren were crowned champions a fortnight ago and received the trophy after last weekend’s win over Morton. Livingston have confirmed their place as runners-up and will enter the play-offs at the semi-final stage. The play-off quarter-finals are likely to be contested by Dundee United and Dunfermline Athletic but Inverness Caley Thistle could still make the top four if they beat Morton at Cappielow and Dunfermline Athletic lose at home to Dumbarton. Brechin City have been relegated and Dumbarton are facing a play-off in attempt to retain their Championship status.
Ladbrokes League 1
Raith Rovers are a point clear of Ayr United and know a win over Alloa Athletic at Stark’s Park will secure the title. If Raith lose, then a draw for Ayr at home to Albion Rovers would see Ian McCall’s men top the table on goal difference. A draw for Raith would see the Honest Men claim the silverware if the beat Albion Rovers. Arbroath and Alloa Athletic are already assured of a play-off place while the bottom two places will be filled by Albion Rovers, who occupy the play-off berth, and Queen’s Park. The Spiders are two points adrift at the bottom so need to beat Arbroath at Hampden to have a chance of avoiding automatic relegation.
Ladbrokes League 2
An outstanding season for Montrose under Stewart Petrie means they need just a point at home to Elgin City to seal only the second title in their history – they were Division Two winners in 1984/85. If Montrose lose, then Peterhead, three points behind but with a superior goal difference, will be champions if they beat Edinburgh City at Balmoor. Stirling Albion and Stenhousemuir – who meet a Forthbank – occupy third and fourth place and are favourites for the play-offs. Clyde are two points behind the Warriors and three behind the Binos with six worse of a goal difference. Danny Lennon’s team must beat Berwick Rangers at Broadwood to have a chance of making the cut. Cowdenbeath will face Spartans or Cove Rangers in a two-legged play-off on May 5 and 12 after finishing bottom of the table.
