Weekend preview

We look at some of the numbers across all four divisions of the SPFL in the last round of fixtures before Christmas...

3 The top four clubs in the Ladbrokes Premiership are separated by just three points going into fixture round 19. Celtic lead the way from Rangers, Kilmarnock and Aberdeen. At the other end of the table, St Mirren are above bottom club Dundee on goal difference.

5 St Johnstone have won more away games (five) than anyone else in the Ladbrokes Premiership this season but it's a home game for Tommy Wright's team this weekend - they face Rangers at McDiarmid Park on Sunday, live on BT Sport at 12.15pm.

3 Aberdeen are on the best current winning streak in the top flight. The Dons beat Livingston, St Mirren and Dundee in the space of a week and will aim to make it four in a row against Hearts at Pittodrie on Saturday.

5 All five games in the Ladbrokes Championship last weekend ended in draws so it's as you were in the table, with leaders Ayr United a point clear of Ross County. The Honest Men are away to Dunfermline Athletic on Saturday while the Staggies host Partick Thistle.

18 Championship top scorer Lawrence Shankland has netted 18 goals in 16 league games for Ayr United this season. He is three in front of Queen of the South's Stephen Dobbie, who has scored 15 times in 15 appearances.

0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle, outside the top four on goal difference, have yet to lose away from home in the Ladbrokes Championship this season. John Robertson's men will put that unbeaten record on the line against Morton at Cappielow on Saturday.

8 Arbroath have won their last eight matches in Ladbrokes League 1 and remain unbeaten this season. Dick Campbell's men will go a massive 16 points clear if they beat closest challengers Raith Rovers at Gayfield this weekend.

18 Raith Rovers striker Kevin Nisbet is joint-top SPFL scorer, along with Ayr’s Lawrence Shankland, with 18 goals in League 1. He is four ahead of Arbroath forward Bobby Linn, who is second in the League 1 scoring charts.

0 Stenhousemuir are the only club in the SPFL not to have drawn a game this season. The Warriors are bottom of the Ladbrokes League 1 table after five wins and 12 defeats.

5 Edinburgh City have a five-point lead over Peterhead at the top of Ladbrokes League 2, although the Blue Toon have a game in hand. The Citizens are away to a Cowdenbeath side unbeaten in four while the Blue Toon host a Stirling Albion side undefeated in their last five matches.

6 Clyde are on the best current unbeaten run in League 2. The Bully Wee are third in the table and six games undefeated but trail leaders Edinburgh City by 10 points going into Saturday's meeting with bottom club Albion Rovers at The Reigart Stadium.

16 Edinburgh City striker Blair Henderson has netted 16 goals in 16 league games for James McDonaugh's men this season. That's seven more than Rory McAllister of Peterhead and Elgin City's Shane Sutherland, who share second spot in the League 2 goalscoring stakes.
