The Scottish Premiership continues to bamboozle, especially the race for the top six with seven teams now separated by four points. It could have been two points if not for Dundee United's late, late, late winner at St Mirren.
St Johnstone also recorded a massive win, defeating Motherwell to put some space between them and rivals Dundee at the bottom of the table. At the top three points continue to separate Celtic and Rangers.
Now the league breaks for two weeks before the final two pre-split fixtures take place. During that time Scotland play two friendlies, one against Poland and one against the losers of Austria v Wales in the World Cup play-off, due to their own play-off with Ukraine being postponed.
