Weekend preview

A look ahead to this weekend's matches across all four divisions of the SPFL...

Ladbrokes Premiership
Leaders Celtic lost to Valencia in the Europa League on Thursday night but have been in excellent form domestically since the winter break and go into the weekend six points clear at the top. They travel to Rugby Park on Sunday to play Kilmarnock, having lost on their previous two visits to Rugby Park. The game is live on Sky Sports, kick-off 4.00pm. Also on Sunday, Motherwell, who have won five Premiership games on the bounce, are up against Hearts at Fir Park - that one is live on BT Sport, kick-off 12.15pm. 

There are four games on Saturday, including the Ibrox encounter between second-placed Rangers and St Johnstone, who are sixth. Aberdeen, in third, have a good recent record against bottom club St Mirren, who they welcome to Pittodrie while new Hibernian boss Paul Heckingbottom takes charge for the first time against Hamilton Accies at Easter Road. Livingston and Dundee meet at the Tony Macaroni Arena in the day's other game, with the Dark Blues sitting second from bottom.

Ayr United will go top of the table on goal difference if they beat Morton at Cappielow on Saturday as leaders Ross County are playing East Fife in the IRN-BRU Cup semi-final on Friday night. Dundee United, who are six points back in third, head south to play a Queen of the South team who are three points outside the play-offs. There's a huge game at the Indodrill Stadium where ninth-placed Alloa Athletic host bottom club Partick Thistle, with only a point between the teams. Inverness CT, who are currently in fourth place, take on Dunfermline Athletic at East End Park.

Bottom club Dumbarton have the chance to move level on points with Stranraer when the teams meet at Stair Park.

Clyde, who are six points off the pace in third place, are at home to bottom club Albion Rovers. Annan Athletic, who occupy the final play-off place and have taken seven points from nine against the top three recently, travel to Central Park to play Cowdenbeath. In-form Stirling Albion are a point outside the top four as they prepare to face Elgin City at Borough Briggs.
