Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson

Hearts 3-0 Partick Thistle

"We've still got quite a few guys to get back.

"To keep a clean sheet's great. The forward players worked really hard as well. To get three goals was great.

"We're still missing penalties. It started from last season, we missed a few. This season we've managed to score two but we're also missing as well so it's something we need to try to get on top of.

"We're trying to get ourselves through to the international break. We can get the guys that are struggling and still playing patched up and then the other guys coming back.

"Once we get through to the international break, we can then start to really push on and hopefully continue our good form.

"We're still miles away from being title contenders. We are, let's be honest. We're only a few games into the season. We've still got a long way to go."

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes

Aberdeen 2-0 Dundee

"There was so much to like about us in the first half - total dominance against a good side.

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes

"We had to try to work round their shape as they've gone with a back five. We tried to keep asking questions and we had about 10 corners in that first half.

"It looked like a goal would just be a matter of time but if it doesn't happen then you just need to keep doing the right thing.

"I think the 2-0 scoreline was a fair reflection of the game.

"Last season it took us a while to find any kind of consistency, although there was some good results. It's important to get into your stride as quickly as possible - it's been a good start."

Ross County manager Jim McIntyre

Kilmarnock 0-4 Ross County

"I'm thrilled. I thought we were excellent from the first whistle. We made good goalscoring opportunities and to be 4-0 up after 30-odd minutes - you've done a lot of things well in the game.

Ross County boss Jim McIntyre
SNS

"I'm really pleased. We made a couple of changes today and the guys who came in played fantastically well.

"We spoke about starting as quickly as we could and being ruthless. The boys certainly done that."

Kilmarnock boss Gary Locke

Kilmarnock 0-4 Ross County

"The first half was embarrassing. The goals we lost - we're not giving ourselves a chance. They're cheap goals and individual mistakes.

"We're making basic mistakes and there's maybe a lack of confidence. But we're going to have to stick together and rally round.

Kilmarnock boss Gary Locke
SNS

"If we start games like this then we're never going to give ourselves a chance."

"I thought we were in control in the second half and playing some good football. We had a really good opportunity with Hemmings but the (first) goal we lost is disappointing.

"Overall, I thought the second half was good from us. We came here with a gameplan and changed the shape of the team.

"We frustrated Aberdeen and they didn't really cut us open. We've got a few players missing and hopefully we can get them back in the next week or so."

Hearts & minds

Victory at Tynecastle against Partick Thistle sees Hearts leapfrog Celtic and move back to the top of the Premiership table.

Eighteen goals in the six top-flight games today. Not too shabby, eh?

PENALTY

Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

Penalty to Aberdeen, Gary Harkins sent off for foul on Adam Rooney!

GOAL

Ally Finlay: Who needs the Old Firm? Hearts and Aberdeen doing well yet the media still say we need rangers... #bbcscotfootball

Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee

Excellent passing play from Aberdeen almost results in a second goal. Graeme Shinnie is the man who gets onto the end of the move but goalkeeper Scott Bain denies him from point blank range.

RED CARD

St Johnstone 2-1 Motherwell

Jake Taylor is given his marching orders for a second bookable offence - simulation in the box as referee Craig Thomson orders the midfielder for an early bath.

St Johnstone 2-1 Motherwell

Kenny Crawford

BBC Sport Scotland

"Steven MacLean scores his third goal of the season - that's the former Aberdeen man equalled his tally from last season. All goals in this match have been from a couple of yards out!"

GOAL

St Johnstone 2-1 Motherwell (MacLean)

They've done it! St Johnstone come from behind to lead at McDiarmid Park. Michael O'Halloran is the provider for Steven MacLean to rifle home his and St Johnstone's second from close range.

Tommy Wright will be doing a wee Gangnam Style dance of delight on the touchline...

Andrew Priestley: Hearts are continuing their impressive start to the season. They are proving that sometimes you have to go down to improve. #bbcscotfootball

GOAL

Hearts 3-0 Partick Thistle (Juanma)

He's just had a penalty save but that won't be bothering Juanma Delgado now as he powers beyond the Partick Thistle defence to chip in Hearts' third.

GOAL

Hearts 2-0 Partick Thistle (Nicholson)

Juanma Delgado's spot-kick is saved by Tomas Cerny but Sam Nicholson is on hand to blast in the rebound. A fairer reflection on the match now.

PENALTY

Stuart Bannigan trips Callum Paterson as he careers into the box and Hearts have a spot-kick.

GOAL

Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee (Rooney)

Aberdeen finally make the breakthrough. Jonny Hayes races down the right hand side, beats his man and lays the ball on a plate for Adam Rooney who bullets a header past Scott Bain.

Aberdeen 0-0 Dundee

BBC Sportsound pundit Craig Paterson

"Any momentum that Aberdeen are building is just dying. It's nothing like the first half."

GOAL

St Johnstone 1-1 Motherwell (MacLean)

Tommy Wright's troops are level. Graham Cummins's cross is met by striker Steven MacLean who fires home from close range for his second goal of the campaign.

Hearts 1-0 Partick Thistle

No 'coming back to haunt his old team' for Ryan Stevenson today; the Thistle midfielder is replaced by Steven Lawless as the Jags continue to trail at Hearts.

Kilmarnock 0-4 Ross County

Kilmarnock have stemmed the flow of goals hitting the back of Jamie MacDonald's net but our reporter Chick "Chico" Young says Gary Locke's side - 4-0 down - have been very poor today.

"Ross County know this is all tied up," booms Chico on the wireless.

CLOSE!

Hearts 1-0 Partick Thistle

Sam Nicholson is clean through on the right for Hearts but the winger drags his shot wide from the edge of the penalty area. The Jambos were on their feet to acclaim a second goal!

Aberdeen 0-0 Dundee

It's a different Dundee this half. Kevin Holt finds space to run forward and unleashes a left foot shot wide, and suddenly it's Aberdeen who are being pinned in their own half.

Aberdeen 0-0 Dundee

Dundee have done more in the opening two minutes than in the whole of the first half, and they should be ahead.

Kane Hemmings races through on goal but is denied by Danny Ward. However, the visitors keep up the pressure and Greg Stewart flashes a shot just wide of the top corner.

Hearts 1-0 Partick

Richard Wilson

BBC Scotland

"The only solace for Partick Thistle is that they are just one goal down at Tynecastle. Hearts have swept upfield at every opportunity and the visitors' defence has had to live on the edge."

St Johnstone 0-1 Motherwell

Aberdeen 0-0 Dundee

Yet another corner from Aberdeen and Gary Harkins almost heads into his own net.

Instead it goes behind for a ninth Dons corner, but the visitors are still surviving the onslaught...

HITS THE WOODWORK

Kilmarnock 0-4 Ross County

The shattered hosts venture forward and Kris Boyd's free-kick thuds against the woodwork and no team-mate is on hand to profit. It never rains but it pours for Gary Locke's troops today...

GOAL

Kilmarnock 0-4 Ross County (Davies)

Kilmarnock boss Gary Locke must wish he'd gone to the cinema this afternoon rather than survey the wreckage of the first half at Rugby Park.

It's now 4-0 to Ross County as Andrew Davies fires home from six yards after Kilmarnock failed to deal with a corner.

County strutting their stuff like 1970s Brazil; the hosts are Killie their fans softly...

Hearts 1-0 Partick

Richard Wilson at Tynecastle

BBC Scotland

"Hearts have barely let up and that won't change even now they have the lead. The visitors are manfully trying to keep them at bay, but it's a hard shift for Partick Thistle."
