Weekend preview in numbers

There’s a full card of games across the cinch Premiership, Championship and League 1, while cinch League 2 clubs are involved in the Scottish Cup…

0 Heart of Midlothian are still unbeaten in the cinch Premiership after last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Rangers at Ibrox. Robbie Neilson’s men have the chance to go top of the table when they take on Dundee at Tynecastle on Saturday. The Dark Blues beat Aberdeen 2-1 last time out to move three points clear of bottom club Ross County.

6 St Mirren go into Sunday’s game against cinch Premiership leaders Rangers, live on Sky Sports at 12 noon, on a run of six matches without defeat. The Buddies have followed a sequence of three draws with three straight victories to move to within a point of the top six. Rangers are a point clear at the top of the table and their only defeat was at Tannadice in August.

23 Partick Thistle are the leading scorers in the SPFL this season, with 23 league goals so far. Ian McCall’s men are just ahead of Kelty Hearts (22) and Celtic (21) after thrashing Hamilton Accies 6-1 at New Douglas Park on Friday night. Ian McCall’s men are at home to Dunfermline Athletic on Saturday – the Pars are yet to record a win but have drawn four of their last five matches.

13 Raith Rovers are the form team in the cinch Championship after picking up 13 points from the last 15 available. Since losing to Queen of the South on September 11, John McGlynn’s men have beaten Morton, Partick Thistle, Kilmarnock and Arbroath and drawn with Dunfermline Athletic. That run has lifted Rovers into second place, five points behind leaders Inverness CT, who they welcome to Stark’s Park on Saturday.

10 Queen’s Park remain undefeated after 10 matches in cinch League 1 this season. Laurie Ellis’ side have notched up five wins and five draws and are three points clear of Cove Rangers and Airdrieonians, with Montrose a point further back in fourth place. The Spiders, who are ground-sharing with Partick Thistle at Firhill, host Alloa Athletic on Sunday.

4 Airdrieonians have climbed to third place in cinch League 1 after winning four of their last five matches. Ian Murray’s men saw off Falkirk 3-0 last weekend and have also beaten Alloa Athletic, East Fife and Clyde on this run, with a last-minute defeat to Cove their only setback. The Diamonds are at home to Dumbarton on Saturday, with the Sons having conceded eight goals in the past two games.
