Weekend preview

There's another big weekend of football coming up across the cinch SPFL, including the Dundee derby at Tannadice on Sunday...

Dundee derby on Sunday
The first Dundee derby of the season takes place at Tannadice on Sunday and is live on Sky Sports, kick-off 12 noon. The Dark Blues haven’t won at the home of their city rivals since a 2-1 victory in August 2004 and are seeking their first win of 2021/22 after gaining promotion via the play-offs. The last Dundee derby was a Championship match at Tannadice in December 2019 that ended 1-1.

Edinburgh rivals still unbeaten
Heart of Midlothian and Hibernian both remain unbeaten in the cinch Premiership this season following their 0-0 draw at Tynecastle on Sunday. The Edinburgh clubs are a point behind reigning champions and current leaders Rangers, who host Motherwell at Ibrox on Sunday. Hibs face St Mirren at Easter Road on Saturday, with Hearts taking on Ross County in Dingwall.

ICT going for six in a row
Inverness Caledonian Thistle have won all five matches in the cinch Championship this season, most recently 3-1 against Partick Thistle last weekend. Billy Dodds’ side are three points clear of closest challengers Kilmarnock and five in front of third-placed Arbroath. Caley Thistle head for East End Park on Saturday to play bottom club Dunfermline Athletic. The Pars have picked up just one point from their four matches so far.

Seven up for Webster
Montrose midfielder Graham Webster has scored in a remarkable seven matches in a row, with six of those goals coming from the penalty spot! Webster has netted in all six of the Gable Endies’ cinch League 1 fixtures and was also on target against Stirling Albion in the SPFL Trust Trophy. Montrose are sitting in second place in the table, one point behind unbeaten leaders Queen’s Park going into Saturday’s meeting with Alloa Athletic at Links Park.

Friday night football
Stirling Albion have the chance to go top of cinch League 2 this evening when they face Edinburgh City at Ainslie Park. Kevin Rutkiewicz's side have won their last three league games and a fourth straight success would take them above Annan Athletic and leaders Kelty Hearts, who play on Saturday. Stirling have won on their last three visits to the capital but City have won three of their last four matches - Gary Naysmith’s men will go level on points with the Binos if they win.
