Goodbye

Now, then. Aberdeen see off Hearts to move within a point of league leaders Celtic. Partick Thistle win at Tannadice to heap more misery on Dundee United; Ross County come from behind to beat Hamilton and Motherwell prove too strong for Dundee.

And an Iain Vigurs-inspired Inverness CT see off Kilmarnock in the Highlands.

Thanks for your company this afternoon. Highlights of all today's games will be on our website from 18:00 GMT tomorrow; join us tomorrow lunchtime for St Johnstone v Celtic from McDiarmid Park.

Some breaking news tonight as St Mirren part company with manager Ian Murray.

Enjoy you Saturday night, cheers.

Motherwell manager Mark McGhee

'We deserved to win'

“I think we dominated the game entirely.  I think we showed some resilience and deserved to win. I suspected we would have to score more than one goal to beat them today because we have let in goals and we’ve not quite got to the stage of being confident we’re going to keep a clean sheet.  We’ve put more distance between ourselves and Dundee United. That’s the important thing for me that we draw ourselves out of this position.”

Dundee United manager Mixu Paatelainen

'Nowhere near good enough'

“Disappointed and devastated really. It’s nowhere near good enough, simple as that. We need to improve a lot. When we get those chances to shoot or get in behind them, we simply need to take them with more conviction.”

Partick boss Alan Archibald

Dundee United 0-1 Partick

"I'm delighted with a clean sheet and the three points. It wasn't a great game of football and I thought the first half was a poor spectacle. 

 "We didn't really get the ball moving but it opened up in the second half. We're delighted to get three on the trot after such a bad start to the season."

Stephen Pearson gets to the near post and meet the right hand side cross, knocking the ball over the line.

FULL-TIME - Hamilton 1-3 Ross County

GOAL - Hamilton 1-3 Ross County

(Liam Boyce)

A double sucker punch for Accies. No sooner had Stewart Murdoch fired County in front, the visitors extend their lead as Liam Boyce scores a third to surely seal the points.

GOAL - Inverness CT 2-1 Kilmarnock

(Mark Connolly)

Killie captain Mark Connolly gives his side a glimmer of hope as he heads home in Inverness. Can they find a late, late equaliser?

(McCluskey)

Get Involved

79' Wallace with a shot from just inside the box on the left, nipping up off a Morton defender and going just wide of goal. 1:1

CLOSE! Motherwell 2-1 Dundee

It's getting nervy for Motherwell. Paul McGowan's cross from the right meets the diving head of Greg Stewart, but he puts it well side from close range. A distraught Stewart has to be lifted back up off the ground by his team-mates.

GOAL - Motherwell 2-1 Dundee

(Gary Harkins)

Gary Harkins pulls one back for Dundee, getting on the end of Kane Hemmings' low cross. Hope springs eternal for Paul Hartley's troops - they're back in it at Fir Park.

CLOSE! Inverness CT 2-0 Kilmarnock

Liam Polworth flashes a shot into the side netting as Caley Thistle look to increase their lead, and you would imagine, secure the three points

Motherwell 2-0 Dundee

Dundee have been the better side in the second half without looking particularly dangerous. Greg Stewart's free-kick doesn't get past the wall, while a crowded penalty box thwarts his efforts on the rebound.

Hamilton 1-1 Ross County

Kenny Crawford

BBC Sport Scotland

Ross County needed to improve this half and a tidy finish by Craig Curran helps them do so. 

The English striker reacts well to Jackson Irvine's shot which came back off the underside of the bar and Curran drills it in low.

GOAL Hamilton 1-1 Ross County

(Craig Curran)

County are level! Martin Woods sees his thunderous drive come back off the crossbar but Craig Curran is on hand to drill the rebound home.

Parity restored - game on! 

GOAL Dundee United 0-1 Partick

(Kris Doolan)

The visitors in front and it's birthday boy Kris Doolan, controlling the ball on the turn and firing home. Joy for Partick but more misery for Mixu's men...

Hamilton 1-0 Ross County

Kenny Crawford

BBC Sport Scotland

Fair scoreline so far at New Douglas Park where Hamilton Accies lead thanks to that well-worked Gramoz Kurtaj goal. 

The Kosovo-born German has looked up for this game and nearly had another goal soon after opening the scoring.

Ross County's set-up is very attacking but they've failed badly to build clear-cut chances.

KICK-OFF

Hang onto your hats, we're back under way across the country!

HALF-TIME - Motherwell 2-0 Dundee

Motherwell 2-0 Dundee

Some great skill from Liam Grimshaw on the stroke of half-time. He plays a one-two then skips past one player before racing up the right wing and leapfrogging another white shirt.He continues his run into the box but finds a lack of claret and amber shirts so shoots for goal from a tight angle, but Scott Bain denies him a wonder goal.

HALF-TIME - Dundee United 0-0 Partick

HALF-TIME - Inverness CT 2-0 Kilmarnock

HALF-TIME - Hamilton 1-0 Ross County

Motherwell 2-0 Dundee

Dundee's best chance of the match. Kane Hemmings cuts inside and hits a fierce shot at goal, but Connor Ripley gets his body behind it and deflects it wide. Paul McGinn then drills a ball across goal that Rory Loy just can't quite get to it at the back post.

Dundee United 0-0 Partick

Half an hour gone and only one shot on goal that was high over the crossbar. If ever a game needed a goal it is this one! Utd 0 Jags 0

GOAL Inverness CT 2-0 Kilmarnock

(Iain Vigurs)

Iain Vigurs doubles the hosts' lead with his second goal of the game. Loanee Miles Storey crosses, James Vincent steps over the ball with a lovely dummy and Vigurs clips in off the left upright.

John Hughes's men are rampant!
