Weekend preview

The Edinburgh derby is among the highlights of a big weekend of football across all four divisions of the SPFL...

Ladbrokes Premiership
Much of the attention will be on Sunday's fixtures, not least the first Edinburgh derby of the season at Easter Road, live on Sky Sports at 3.00pm - both Hibs and Hearts are in need of a boost after poor starts to 2019/20. Also on Sunday, leaders Celtic put their 100% record on the line at home to Kilmarnock, kick-off 1.00pm, and second-placed Rangers are away to St Johnstone, live on BT Sport at 12.15pm. There are also three matches on Saturday, with third-placed Motherwell taking on Ross County at Fir Park. Aberdeen go to Livingston and St Mirren welcome Hamilton Accies to Paisley.

Ladbrokes Championship
Leaders Dundee United suffered their first league defeat of the season at Somerset Park last weekend and now face Arbroath at Tannadice, where the Red Lichties recently won in the Tunnock's Caramel Wafer Cup. Ayr United, second only on goal difference, travel to the Indodrill Stadium to take on Alloa Athletic and third-placed Inverness CT play Queen of the South in the Highland capital. Morton meet Dundee at Cappielow and there's a huge match at the Energy Check Stadium at Firhill where managerless Partick Thistle and Stevie Crawford’s Dunfermline Athletic are both seeking their first league wins.

Ladbrokes League 1
Unbeaten East Fife are two points clear at the top and are still unbeaten as they prepare to face Dumbarton in Methil. Raith Rovers, in second spot, travel to Airdrie, whose manager Ian Murray has this week signed a new contract. Title favourites Falkirk are away to second-bottom Stranraer and there’s an Angus derby at Station Park between Forfar Athletic and bottom club Montrose. Promoted pair Peterhead and Clyde are locked together on eight points ahead of their encounter at Balmoor.

Ladbrokes League 2
SPFL top scorers Cove Rangers are three points clear of Edinburgh City at the top of the table. Paul Hartley's men go to Borough Briggs to play Elgin City while James McDonaugh's side head for Coatbridge to face Albion Rovers. Third-placed Cowdenbeath travel to Hampden to take on Queen's Park and Annan Athletic welcome Stirling Albion to Galabank. Stenhousemuir have Davie Irons in interim charge for the home game against bottom club Brechin City following the departure of manager Colin McMenamin.
