Ladbrokes Championship

St Mirren v Livingston, 7.45pm

A new club will hit top spot in the Championship tonight after second-placed St Mirren host a Livingston side sitting one place behind them in the table.

Dundee United currently lead the way in the second tier with 27 points, but the Buddies and Livi are breathing down their neck with 26 and 25 points respectively.

The clash in Paisley promises to be the game of the night, with Jack Ross’ side looking to prove they are back on form after a win over Inverness on Saturday ended a three-match winless run in the league.

The visitors have put themselves firmly in promotion contention with a three-match unbeaten run recently that included an impressive 3-0 victory away to Queen of the South last time out.

Inverness CT v Brechin City, 7.45pm

At the bottom end of the table, Brechin City are still looking for their first win of the season when they travel to Inverness, who were starting to find some form recently until a 2-0 loss against St Mirren over the weekend.

Ladbrokes Premiership

Motherwell v Celtic, 7.45pm

Motherwell were enraged with referee Craig Thomson’s decision to award a penalty and send off Cedric Kipre after Scott Sinclair went down easily under the challenge of the Frenchman during Sunday’s 2-0 Betfred Cup final defeat.

Stephen Robinson’s side will be looking to bounce back in style in front of a home crowd just three days on from the Hampden Park showdown, although Celtic’s run of 66 matches without defeat in domestic competition makes an upset seem unlikely.

The Hoops currently lead the Premiership table by three points, but have a game in hand over second-placed Aberdeen. ‘Well have started the season in impressive form and currently occupy fifth spot, two points behind Rangers, although the Steelmen have played one game less than the Gers.

Rangers v Aberdeen, 7.45pm, Sky Sports Main Event

Graeme Murty remains in charge at Ibrox on an interim basis and will be looking for a reaction from his side the night before the club’s hierarchy gathers for the club AGM. The last two results have been disastrous for the Gers, losing against Hamilton Accies at Ibrox for the first time since 1926 before last Friday’s defeat at Dens Park against a Dundee side that began the game on the foot of the table.

A win for second-placed Aberdeen would see them move nine points clear of the Gers before meeting them again at Pittodrie on Sunday. Dons boss Derek McInnes has insisted he is going nowhere amid links to the Rangers vacancy, but he will be looking to make a statement in Glasgow after patchy recent form has seen his side pick up just two wins in five games.
