Weekend preview

Ladbrokes Premiership clubs are still on their winter break but there’s a big weekend of football coming up across the other three divisions of the SPFL...

In the Ladbrokes Championship, leaders Ross County make the long journey south to face Queen of the South. The Staggies remain three points clear at the top despite last week’s defeat at Morton while Queens, with Stephen Dobbie up to 30 goals for the season, are just outside the play-offs. Second-placed Ayr United, without a win in their last four outings, head up the A9 to face an Inverness CT side who have won just once at home in 2018/19.

New Dunfermline Athletic boss Stevie Crawford will be in charge for the first time as the Pars play third-placed Dundee United at Tannadice while in-form Alloa Athletic are aiming to make six games without defeat when they host fourth-placed Morton at the Indodrill Stadium. There’s a huge match at The Energy Check Stadium at Firhill as bottom club Partick Thistle take on a Falkirk side just a point above them.

It’s still an 11-point advantage for Arbroath at the summit of Ladbrokes League 1 ahead of their trip to play bottom club Stenhousemuir at Ochilview. Raith Rovers, in second, are away to an Airdrieonians team who have won their last three matches to move to within a point of the play-offs. Montrose, with just one defeat in seven matches, welcome third-placed East Fife to Links Park and Forfar Athletic, who occupy the final play-off berth, entertain Stranraer at Station Park. Brechin City and Dumbarton - who meet at Glebe Park - have both been in poor form of late. 

Edinburgh City have a three-point lead in Ladbrokes League 2 going into Saturday's game at Hampden against a Queen's Park side without a win in their last six games. Peterhead, in second spot, are away to bottom club Albion Rovers, who have drawn their last two matches. Clyde are the SPFL's form team after a run of nine games without defeat and they travel to a Berwick Rangers team who are ninth in the table. Improving Stirling Albion welcome fourth-placed Annan Athletic to Forthbank and Elgin City are up against Cowdenbeath at Borough Briggs.
