Goodbye

So, Hearts narrow the gap on Aberdeen in second place to six points following their comfortable victory at home to Inverness CT.

Kilmarnock boss Lee Clark is left ruing defensive lapses after defeat by Ross County sees the Ayrshire outfit continue to feel Dundee United breathing down their necks.

In the Championship, Rangers extend their lead over Hibs to 14 points, with Falkirk now just a point behind Alan Stubbs' men.

Thanks for your company tonight. Highlights of the game at Rugby Park will be published on our website later. Hearts' win will be available tomorrow and we're back then for three Premiership games:

Celtic v Dundee

Dundee United v Aberdeen 

St Johnstone v Partick Thistle

Hope you can join us then. Cheers.

Ross County boss Jim McIntyre

Kilmarnock 0-2 Ross County

"We set out our team to attack tonight and we knew the importance of three points. 

It [Rugby Park] is a venue we've done well at. The boys enjoy playing on that and we certainly showed that."

Relegation fears

Victory for Ross County at Rugby Park lifts Jim McIntyre's troops to fourth in the table while Kilmarnock are eight points clear of bottom club Dundee United. However, United have two games in hand...

Kilmarnock boss Lee Clark

Killie 0-2 Ross County

"Not good enough in both boxes really. We've given away two awful goals and we haven't worked their goalkeeper enough with the chances we created.

"I'm really disappointed. We had started on the front foot and put a bit of pressure on them. We've then defended very poorly for that [Alex Schalk] goal. We didn't pick people up in the penalty area and had two or three defenders ball-watching.

"And the second goal is so poor it's untrue. We're becoming over-reliant on [goalkeeper] Jamie MacDonald: that's a problem. We think he's going to get us out of those situations too often."

Hibs boss Alan Stubbs

QoS 1-0 Hibs

"I'm baffled to be honest as to how we've lost the game. It's a sore one to take. We've completely controlled the game and we've had chances. 

"Unfortunately, we haven't taken them. They've had, I think, one shot at goal and they've scored from it. "We feel we deserve more than what we got tonight. We've had enough chances to get all three points. "Right now it just doesn't seem to be falling for us.

"We've obviously made it more difficult to go up automatically [Hibs are now 14 points behind leaders Rangers] as champions. That's difficult now. 

"But we've said all along: our ambition is to go up and we still have a possibility of doing that and a good chance of doing that."

Inverness CT boss John Hughes

Hearts 2-0 Inverness CT

"I'm disappointed with the goals we lost - especially the second. At 1-0 we were always in the game. The first goal is a 30-yard pass over the top and we need to see that coming and deal with it. 

"I'm really disappointed - we played some nice football and huffed and puffed. Hearts played with a better energy and got at us. 

"Fon Williams only had one or two saves; it was that kind of game. Possibly over the piece I think Hearts deserved to win it."

Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson

Hearts 2-0 Inverness CT

"I'm pleased; it was a good performance against a very good team. I thought we passed the ball well and were very patient. We controlled a lot of the game.

"Towards the end and the last 15 minutes I thought Inverness came into it when they changed their shape a bit.

"But it's another three points and six out of six so far this week. We want to make it nine out of nine on Saturday [at home to Partick Thistle]."

Hearts eye second

Robbie Neilson's men move to within six points of Aberdeen in second place - who face Dundee United tomorrow night - courtesy of a comfortable victory at home to Inverness CT.

Jamie Walker and Abiola Dauda were on the scoresheet for the Jambos at Tynecastle. We'll hear from Neilson soon...

Rangers extend lead

Goals from Harry Forrester and Lee Wallace secured victory for Rangers and, with Hibs losing at Queen of the South, saw the Ibrox outfit increase their lead at the top of the Championship to 14 points.

Falkirk, who fought out a goalless draw with St Mirren, are now only a point behind the low-flying Hibees.

Are you watching Mixu? Dundee United may have been thrown a lifeline as Ross County double their lead late, late, late on at Rugby Park.

Brian Graham lobs Jamie MacDonald to seal the points for County, who move up to fourth in the table.

The Dundee United boss would be forgiven a wee soft-shoe shuffle dance in his living room after hearing of County's second goal.

Victory for United tomorrow against Aberdeen would see them cut the gap on Kilmarnock to five points...

"Kilmarnock are still in this game, competitive and spending plenty of time on the ball. Clear chances remain rare, though, and Ross County are a constant threat on the counter-attack. The tension is growing as the game moves into the final stages."

Clear blue water between Rangers and Hibs now. Think Hibs now have to concentrate on keeping Falkirk at bay for that play-off place.

KICK-OFF

Here we go again! 

Kilmarnock 0-1 Ross County

Richard Wilson

BBC Scotland at Rugby park

"Kilmarnock have been flaky in defence, but after falling behind and then losing just Topi Obadeyi to injury, they showed an element of spirit and resolve. Even when they were spending periods of time in the Ross County penalty area, they failed to create a clear chance, though. County know that Schalk is sharp and lively enough up front to have three efforts on goal and another blocked by a saving tackle. It is the visitors who will feel emboldened, but the score line remains tight."
