I'll sign off now. Thanks for your company on a good day for supporters of Motherwell and Ross County. Enjoy the rest of your Saturday and make sure you join us again tomorrow.

We've got Hearts v Rangers from Ibrox tomorrow lunchtime and later in the afternoon Alloa take on Livingston in the Petrofac Training Cup final. BBC Radio Scotland is covering both games and you can watch the final from McDiarmid Park on BBC ALBA and on the BBC Sport website.

Staying in the Championship, it should be noted that Falkirk are just three points behind Hibs and Rangers, with Queens two points further back, so those two are right in the mix as the season heads towards its conclusion. How many would have predicted those clubs being so close at this stage?

Hibernian manager Alan Stubbs

"It's a disappointing result. Queen of the south worked really hard to make it difficult for us and our passing was too slow. Second half, we were better and put their back five under more pressure but it just felt like it wasn't happening for us.

"I'm still right behind the players and we're not going to panic."

Hibs have now lost three in a row and will slip to third place if Rangers avoid defeat at home to Hearts tomorrow.

Dundee's goal has been given to David Clarkson, so apologies for misleading you earlier. It was the only shot on target from the visitors, who must be confident of reaching the top six now. Paul Hartley's men have two games in hand over Hamilton, needing to make up two points.

Partick Thistle manager Alan Archibald

"We should be 2-0 up at half-time but not many teams come to Pittodrie and get a point, so we're happy enough. Our shape was good, the players are working hard and we cut them open a couple of times."

The Jags are seven points clear of Motherwell in the relegation play-off place.

No change in positions five and six either, since Hamilton and St Johnstone shared the spoils. Player-manager Martin Canning let the side down for Accies with a daft red card and their winless run extends to 12 games.

Inverness CT have now gone five league matches without a win but they have seen their grip of third place strengthen since Dundee United are sinking like a stone. Jackie McNamara's men have gone nine without a victory.

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes sounded a little flat during his BBC Radio Scotland pre-match interview, saying his side were out of the title race. His team were similarly lacklustre at Pittodrie today and were fortunate not to lose to Partick Thistle, with Lyle Taylor wasting a couple of great one-on-one chances in the first half.

STAGGIES ROLL ON

Ross County's remarkable run continues with today's win at Tannadice lifting them 10 points clear of St Mirren at the bottom
SNS Group

Jim McIntyre's team are unbeaten in seven games, winning six of those, and they ruined Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara's 100th game in charge.

The Dingwall side managed just 12 points from their first 24 games. That's quite an upturn in fortunes...

Today's big losers in the Premiership played last night. St Mirren lost at home to Celtic despite a gutsy showing and they are now in danger of being cast adrift at the bottom since the gap to Motherwell is now seven points.

Tim: "Elgin are chucking the kitchen sink against East Stirlingshire but can't score!"

lain Howwood: "County goal at Tannadice could be the final nail in St Mirren's coffin - just what the board deserve for the level of apathy that they've allowed to settle at the club."

ABERDEEN 0-0 PARTICK THISTLE

Scott Fox has to stop another shot from distance, this time it was Niall McGinn letting fly for the Dons.

We're approaching stoppage time across the nation. Will we get some late drama?

ABERDEEN 0-0 PARTICK THISTLE

Thistle keeper Scott Fox spills a long range effort from Jonny Hayes but recovers in time to smother it as Adam Rooney thunders in.

CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND-UP

Cowdenbeath move 3-0 up against Dumbarton, with Colin Nish on target against his former team. Meanwhile, Hibs are throwing everyone forward in search of an equaliser against Queen of the South and Zander Clark makes a great save to deny Dominque Malonga.

CLOSE!

INVERNESS CT 1-1 DUNDEE

Inverness play a rare long ball forward and it nearly results in a goal as Marley Watkins heads it on for substitute Edward Ofere, who pokes a shot inches wide.

BBC Scotland's Kenny Crawford at Rugby Park

"Lee Erwin has looked very useful this afternoon and he's got his reward with a low left footed strike from eight yards - his second strike of the season after netting on the opening day back in August."

GOAL

KILMARNOCK 1-2 MOTHERWELL (Erwin)

It's been coming. Motherwell are ahead now as Lee Erwin twists one way then another before drilling a shot beyond Craig Samson.

DISALLOWED GOAL

ABERDEEN 0-0 PARTICK THISTLE

Partick Thistle continue to create the better openings as Lyle Taylor is almost in again and this time Mark Reynolds is able to clear, then Taylor does find the net from Conrad Balatoni's ball but he was offside.

KILMARNOCK 1-1 MOTHERWELL

Kilmarnock forward Tope Obadeyi hits the deck inside the box and referee Euan Anderson gives him a yellow card for his play-acting.

GOAL

HAMILTON 1-1 ST JOHNSTONE (Graham)

The visitors are level against 10-man Accies as Brian Graham meets a cross from Simon Lappin with a powerful header.

GOAL

DUNDEE UNITED 1-2 ROSS COUNTY (Da Vitta)

The Ross County bandwagon rolls on as Raffa De Vita is on hand to finish following after Radoslaw Cierzniak stops a Jackson Irvine header with a great save.

KILMARNOCK 1-1 MOTHERWELL

The visitors continue to push for a winner as Lionel Ainsworth cracks a laser-like strike at goal which Craig Samsom can't hold, but the defence manage to get it clear.

DISALLOWED GOAL

DUNDEE UNITED 1-1 ROSS COUNTY

Play has deteriorated at Tannadice as Jackson Irvine heads in from another corner but the County midfielder is denied a carbon-copy goal with some pushing on the keeper spotted by the officials.

CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND-UP

Falkirk are ahead, with Will Vaulks on target against 10-man Raith Rovers. That lifts them back above Queen of the South, who are winning at Hibs. Cowdenbeath are 2-0 up on Dumbarton and poised to move out of the relegation play-off spot.

KILMARNOCK 1-1 MOTHERWELL

Motherwell are beginning to get a grip of this game as Lee Erwin cuts inside to curl a shot just off target.

CLOSE!

HAMILTON 1-0 ST JOHNSTONE

The visitors almost snatch an equaliser as Michael O'Halloran crosses for David Graham and the striker's header goes inches wide.

HITS THE WOODWORK

KILMARNOCK 1-1 MOTHERWELL

Motherwell striker Scott McDonald bustles forward and powers a shot in that hammers the crossbar. A corner is given, so keeper Craig Samson must have got his fingertips to it.

CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND-UP

Loud booing at Easter Road now as frustrated Hibs fans react to striker Jason Cummings being replaced. The home side trail 1-0 to Queen of the South and have been badly out of sorts.

ABERDEEN 0-0 PARTICK THISTLE

Mark Reynolds was in the Scotland squad last week but he will be hoping Gordon Strachan doesn't get a recording of today's game. Lyle Taylor is running rings round him and as another chance goes begging for the visitors.
