  1. Thrilling Killie

    Kilmarnock 2-0 Livingston

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland at Rugby Park

    Make that three goals in two games for Greg Stewart. Supplied again by Chris Burke!

    Let’s just get a couple of things right here.

    Kilmarnock have only lost once in their last 10 league games. They are going for their fourth clean sheet in a row tonight. They have Livingston rattled at Rugby Park.

  2. CLOSE!

    Hibernian 0-1 St Mirren

    Much, much better from Hibs. Some lovely interplay sends Flo Kamberi scampering in on goal from a tight angle.

    He fires it across the face where Lewis Stevenson collects it left of the target. He blasts in a shot that Danny Rogers tips away well.

  3. CLOSE!

    Kilmarnock 2-0 Livingston

    Dolly Menga – who Livingston manager Gary Holt says has been “champing at the bit” to get back to action following a two-match ban – looks lively as he sends an effort into the side netting.

    However, signs of life from the visitors, who so far failed to find a goal to get back into this game.

  4. 7 changes for Celtic yet no real change at all…

    Motherwell 0 – 1 Celtic

    Peter Houston

    Former Scotland assistant manager on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: You look at the seven changes from Celtic and nothing’s changed, they’ve still got the same quality and they still move the ball…

  5. Celtic dangerous on counter

    Motherwell 0-1 Celtic

    Celtic’s pace on the counter is causing Motherwell problems. Leigh Griffiths pounces on a mistake by the hosts and drives for the box.

    The striker’s cutback looks odds on to be rifled home by in-form Ryan Christie but the Steelmen recover to block then clear.

  6. CLOSE!

    Hibernian 0-1 St Mirren

    Stevie Mallan is a whisker away from drawing Hibs level against his former side.

    The midfielder dances and spins his way through a couple of defenders on the edge of the box, but drags his left-foot effort across the face of goal.

  7. CLOSE!

    Rangers 0-1 Aberdeen

    Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos almost equalises, but his near-post header from a corner flies into the side netting.

  8. Perth purring over Premiership cracker

    St Johnstone 1-1 Hearts

    Tyrone Smith

    BBC Scotland at McDiarmid Park

    Fantastic game in Perth, end to end, and no surprise really
    that St Johnstone have levelled.

  9. GOAL Dundee 1-0 Hamilton

    Kenny Miller

    It’s a nice finish from Kenny Miller from 5 yards but it’s all about the build up play from Glen Kamara. He controls the ball expertly on the edge of the box, beats two players with a dummy and slips the ball to Miller who does the rest.

  10. Motherwell in bother in the early stages

    Motherwell 0-1 Celtic

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Sport Scotland at Fir Park

    Quite an atmosphere at Fir Park with both clubs’ ‘ultras’ trying to out-do each other, with firecrackers and all sorts going off. On the park, Motherwell are in all sorts of trouble. Peter Hartley and Liam Donnelly have already been forced off injured in the opening 12 minutes and, even worse, they find themselves a goal down.

  11. Dundee pressure

    Dundee 0-0 Hamilton

    A couple of good chances for Dundee as first Glen Kamara heads wide from close range and then Jesse Curran fluffs a volley from eight yards.

  12. DISALLOWED GOAL

    Motherwell 0-1 Celtic

    Celtic think they’ve doubled their lead as Filip Benkovic steers a corner home but the giant Croatian is deemed to have fouled in the box and Motherwell earn a reprieve.

  13. Mark of respect

    Motherwell 0-1 Celtic

    Fir Park stands to a man to applaud Motherwell fan Lewis Coll who passed away recently at the age of 17. Excellent reception from
    both sets of supporters.

  14. Great move from Ryan Christie

    Motherwell 0 – 1 Celtic

    Willie Miller

    Former Scotland defender at Fir Park

    Quote Message: It’s a great move, Scott Brown actually starts the move then out to Kieran Tierney who drives it down from the left hand side and Ryan Christie makes the move from midfield.

  15. Mullen injury blow

    Hibernian 0-1 St Mirren

    A blow for the Buddies as striker Danny Mullen goes down in some distress.

    He tries to play on, but it’s clear he won’t be able to continue. Grimacing, he hobbles off, with Cammy Smith taking his place.

  16. Masters of own downfall

    Motherwell 0-1 Celtic

    Motherwell’s defenders are standing quizzing
    each other as Celtic carve them open. Liam Donnelly was off the park getting
    treatment and Motherwell simply didn’t reorganise to plug the gaps. Adam
    Livingstone is now on, but what a blow that is. Can’t help but think the hosts
    played a massive part in their own downfall.

  17. GOAL Kilmarnock 2-0 Livingston

    Greg Stewart

    Livingston were robbed by Chris Burke and the ball was neatly delivered up to Stewart who weaved his way into the box and drove it low into the left side of the net

  18. GOAL St Johnstone 1-1 Hearts

    Blair Alston

    Balir Alston started with Drey Wright injured, and he has drawn the home side level – getting to David Wotherspoon’s cross at the back post and driving in.

  19. Hammill howitzer

    Hibernian 0-1 St Mirren

    If you’re a St Mirren fan, you’ll want to stay up for Sportscene tonight.

    This was a David Beckham-Neil Sullivan sort of special from Adam Hammill.

  20. Djoum Raider

    St Johnstone 0-1 Hearts

    Tyrone Smith

    BBC Scotland at McDiarmid Park

    A dream start for Hearts, as Arnaud Djoum manages something not
    many people do these days: to score against St Johnstone; the first goal they have
    conceded in over six games.
