That's enough from me folks. Thanks for your company.

Let's do it all again tomorrow...

Top of the table clash

We have a cracker for you tomorrow, with Premiership leaders Celtic visiting Aberdeen.

Make sure you join us for all the action from Pittodrie.

FT: Partick Thistle 1-0 Motherwell

Motherwell boss Mark McGhee on BBC Radio Scotland

"We lost a goal that could have been avoided with some better thinking. Even if we'd won tonight and I'd still be saying we are in dogfight. All the teams are much of muchness and there will be days when we get the breaks."

FT: Morton 0-1 Hibernian

Hibs manager Alan Stubbs on BBC Radio Scotland

"We're in the final stretch of the season and it's just about picking up points. We weren't at our fluent best but we should have won more comfortably. We were maybe a bit over-elaborate at times but as long as we keep winning, I'm happy."

FT: Raith Rovers 0-1 Rangers

"I was disappointed by Raith Rovers. They stood off Rangers and you can't afford to do that against good players," says BBC Radio Scotland pundit Derek Ferguson.

FT: Raith Rovers 0-1 Rangers

Rovers boss Ray MacKinnon on BBC Radio Scotland

"It was difficult for us in the first half with the wind, but we got stuck in the second half and were much better. The referee has chalked off a perfectly good goal and we deserved something from that.

"It's outrageous. I've no idea where the referee gets that decision from. It was really, really poor. I'm a wee bit angry, I must say."

FT: Partick Thistle 1-0 Motherwell

Thistle boss Alan Archibald on BBC Radio Scotland

"It wasn't much of match and a lot of that was down to the conditions. There wasn't a lot of goalmouth action, with both teams cancelling each other out.

"We got a stroke of luck with the deflection for the goal but we'll take that and a good clean sheet. It's a massive three points because we have a tough run of games coming up."

FT: Partick Thistle 1-0 Motherwell

The Premiership is incredibly tight in the middle section. Thistle are now four points away from the relegation play-off place and four points off St Johnstone in fifth place.

If your team can put a wee run together, they can fairly zoom up the table.

FT: Partick Thistle 1-0 Motherwell

Here's a scene that did not look likely for 90 drab minutes at Firhill. But Steven Lawless ensured the home fans are going home happy, taking one touch then smashing in a shot that took a big nick off Kieron Kennedy on its way in.

The Championship leaders keep on winning...

CLOSE! Partick Thistle 1-0 Motherwell

Suddenly it's all happening! Motherwell defender Stephen McManus is denied an immediate equaliser as his flashing header is nodded away by Gary Fraser protecting his team's goal-line.

GOAL Partick Thistle 1-0 Motherwell (Lawless, 90)

It looks like the home side have timed this to perfection. As the game enters stoppage-time, Stevie Lawless has a go and his powerful strike takes a pronounced deflection on its way past Connor Ripley.

Partick Thistle 0-0 Motherwell

A late change for the hosts, as Gary Fraser comes on for Kris Doolan, who hasn't had a sniff of goal this evening.

Partick Thistle 0-0 Motherwell

A shot! And it's on target! Thistle left-back Scott Booth hammers in a powerful effort and it needs a decent save from Connor Ripley to keep the scores level.

Partick Thistle 0-0 Motherwell

Motherwell make their last change, with speedy winger Lionel Ainsworth on for Chris Cadden, who gets a row from his coaches for leaving the pitch too quickly.

Morton 0-1 Hibernian

The Easter Road side keep pressing as Derek Gaston holds on to a fizzing Liam Henderson shot at the second attempt.

Rumour mill

Some good old football nonsense to brighten up your evening...

The Giggs to Celtic rumour is nonsense.

Morton 0-1 Hibernian

Anthony Stokes, who missed out on Saturday's League Cup semi-final with a back strain, has done his bit for the night. The Hibs goalscorer is off and Chris Dagnall joins the visitors' attack.

Partick Thistle 0-0 Motherwell

Matthias Pogba has made a difference for the Jags, with his muscular presence. The big man with the famous brother sends a looping header just over.

Raith Rovers 0-1 Rangers

The visitors are still well on top in Fife but I'm sure manager Mark Warburton would like another goal as we enter the final 15 minutes.

Morton 0-1 Hibernian

Now Anthony Stokes has a go for Hibs and his effort is more accurate although keeper Derek Gaston has no trouble getting behind it.

Morton 0-1 Hibernian

John McGinn fires a long-range shot off target as Hibs seek the cushion of a second goal at Cappielow.

Partick Thistle 0-0 Motherwell

Now the Jags shuffle their pack, bring on Matthias Pogba for Sean Welsh. We might see a few more long balls from the home side now...

Raith Rovers 0-1 Rangers

Rangers fans get their first look at Michael O'Halloran as the new signing replaces Barrie Mackay in the visitors' midfield.

Partick Thistle 0-0 Motherwell

Morgaro Gomis, borrowed from Hearts yesterday, is on for his Motherwell debut, replacing Louis Moult. That's a defensive midfielder for a striker, not exactly inspiring me to think this is suddenly going to erupt into a goal-fest.

Ben Hall is also going off for the visitors since he is struggling with an injury. Kieran Kennedy is on for him in defence.

Partick Thistle 0-0 Motherwell

"It's more stop than start," sighs BBC Radio Scotland commentator Rob Maclean, who is growing weary of the increasing number of fouls in a scrappy affair at Firhill.

League One latest: Stranraer have knocked in a quick double to take the lead at Albion Rovers, Craig Malcolm and Andy Stirling on target.

Morton 0-1 Hibernian

Anthony Stokes goes close to a second goal for Hibs as his shot from 18 yards scoots just wide.

GOAL Morton 0-1 Hibernian (Stokes 47)

John McGinn drives forward for the visitors and slips a pass to Anthony Stokes, who drills a shot under keeper Derek Gaston from the edge of box.

Partick Thistle 0-0 Motherwell

Great chance for the visitors as Scott McDonald breaks to the edge of the penalty area and the ball is worked to Stephen Pearson, who sees his shot from 15 yards deflected wide by Danny Seaborne.

KICK-OFF

We're up and running again at most of the grounds now...

Partick Thistle 0-0 Motherwell

Richard Wilson

BBC Scotland at Firhill

"Neither manager will question the work rate of their players, or the competitive zeal, but a moment of quality has eluded both teams so far. There was a confrontation between the two managers when Motherwell were not awarded a penalty when Marvin Johnson tumbled inside the area, but they walked off together at half-time. There were five bookings but no goals in the opening half, which reflects the nature of the play."

Morton 0-0 Hibernian

"I was expecting a lot better but it's just not happening for either side. Derek Gaston made a fantastic save to keep out a James Keatings header but that's been about it. With Rangers in front, Hibs simply need to win this one and that's what manager Alan Stubbs will be telling his players." BBC Radio Scotland's Charlie Mann.

Raith Rovers 0-1 Rangers

"It's been one-way traffic and I can only see more Rangers goals in the second half," says BBC Radio Scotland pundit Derek Ferguson.
