It's Friday and that means we’re just a day away from the next set of fixtures in Scotland’s top flight, and what a weekend of football we have ahead of us.

The biggest game in the country is arguably taking place at Pittodrie with Aberdeen desperate for a victory after a run of no victories in ten games has left them at the wrong end of the table. They go up against a Hibs side looking to get back to winning ways following last weekend’s stunning upset at the hands of Dundee United.

Rivals Hearts look to maintain their undefeated start to the campaign with a home meeting against Dundee, while United look to follow up on that win at Easter Road with the visit of Motherwell.

Celtic host St Johnstone looking to close the gap at the top before Rangers travel to St Mirren on Sunday. And Ross County host Livingston in the Highlands.
