Weekend preview

There's a huge weekend of football coming up across all four divisions of the SPFL...

Ladbrokes Premiership
The top flight resumes with the first round of post-split fixtures. Celtic could be crowned champions this weekend if they beat Hibernian at Easter Road on Sunday and Rangers drop points against Hearts at Tynecastle on Saturday - both games are live on Sky Sports. Kilmarnock and Aberdeen meet at Rugby Park in a key battle for third place and a guaranteed Europa League spot - they are currently separated by goal difference. Meanwhile, bottom club Dundee are looking to end a seven-game losing run when they make the short journey to McDiarmid Park to play St Johnstone. St Mirren, who occupy the relegation play-off place, travel to Livingston, who have chalked up 10 home wins this season. Hamilton Accies are four points clear of the drop zone as they prepare to face Motherwell in a Lanarkshire derby at the Hope CBD Stadium.

Ladbrokes Championship
Ross County are four points away from sealing the title and go up against Ayr United in the BBC Scotland live TV Friday night clash at Somerset Park. A win would take Steven Ferguson and Stuart Kettlewell's team to the brink of promotion and they could clinch a Premiership return if Dundee United then drop points away to an Inverness CT side who require a draw to confirm a play-off spot. In an incredible battle to avoid the drop, five clubs are separated by just four points. Alloa Athletic are chasing a fifth straight victory when they go to bottom club Partick Thistle and there's another massive match at the Falkirk Stadium as the Bairns host Morton. Queen of the South are another team in danger and welcome fifth-placed Dunfermline Athletic to Palmerston.

Ladbrokes League 1
Arbroath were crowned champions last weekend and will receive the trophy at their final home game of the season against Dumbarton on May 4. Dick Campbell's men play second-placed Raith Rovers at Gayfield on Sunday, live on BBC ALBA at 4.05pm. Forfar Athletic, in third, are away to a Stenhousemuir side who are bottom of the table despite losing just two of their last nine games. Montrose have climbed into the play-off places after four wins out of five and are at home to an Airdrieonians team who could revive their own top-four hopes with a win. Stranraer have opened up a four-point gap on Brechin City as the sides prepare to meet at Stair Park while Dumbarton, in seventh spot, host East Fife.

Ladbrokes League 2
Peterhead could be crowned champions on Saturday - that would require them to beat out-of-form Elgin City at Borough Briggs and for second-placed Clyde to lose to bottom club Berwick Rangers at Broadwood. Queen's Park and Annan Athletic, who have both been in good recent form, go head to head at Hampden Park while second-bottom Albion Rovers take on Edinburgh City in Coatbridge. Stirling Albion and Cowdenbeath meet at Forthbank in the day's other game.
