There's another big weekend of SPFL football coming up, with games on Friday, Saturday and Sunday...

5 Ladbrokes Championship pacesetters Ayr United have won all five league games at Somerset Park this season and have a three-point lead over Ross County. Ian McCall's men host Queen of the South on Saturday - Stephen Dobbie has netted 13 Championship goals for the Doonhamers while Lawrence Shankland has bagged 12 for the Honest Men.

7 Inverness CT have drawn seven matches on the trot in the Ladbrokes Championship and remain unbeaten in the league since March. John Robertson's team are fifth in the table and on Saturday are away to a Partick Thistle team who have lost their last six matches.

0 Ladbrokes League 1 leaders Arbroath have yet to lose a game this season, picking up nine wins and three draws. Dick Campbell's men have a seven-point lead over closest challengers Raith Rovers as they prepare to face local rivals Montrose to Gayfield on Saturday.

6 Peterhead have strung together a six-match winning run to take over from Edinburgh City at the summit of Ladbrokes League 2. Jim McInally's men head to Hampden this weekend to play Queen's Park, who have taken seven points from their last three games.

2 Two SPFL clubs have appointed new managers this week. Barry Smith will take charge of Brechin City for the first time when they play Forfar Athletic in Ladbrokes League 1 and Kevin Harper makes his dug-out debut for Albion Rovers against Edinburgh City in Ladbrokes League 2.

15 Leading goalscorer in the SPFL this season is Raith Rovers striker Kevin Nisbet, with 15 league goals. He’ll be looking to add to his tally in the derby match away to East Fife on Saturday.
