Edinburgh and Cowden joy, Clyde drop further

There was a shock for League Two leaders Forfar Athletic as they went down 2-1 at home to Edinburgh City thanks to Lewis Allan's late winner.

Annan Athletic beat Elgin City 1-0 to leapfrog the visitors into third place.

The nerves will be jangling in Cumbernauld after Clyde went down away to second-placed Arbroath.

The side who parted with manager Barry Ferguson have dropped to second bottom behind Edinburgh.

Meanwhile, bottom side Cowdenbeath, who appointed Gary Locke in place of Liam Fox this week, moved to within five points of Clyde with a game in hand after ending their long wait for a win by beating Berwick Rangers 3-1 away from home.

Leaders Livi slip up

In League One, Alloa Athletic move to within seven points of Livingston after Jason Kerr scored a late winner for East Fife away to the leaders.

The Fifers are third, a further six points back, with Airdrieonians and Brechin City in fourth and fifth after their victories.

The three bottom sides - Peterhead, Albion Rovers and Stenhousemuir - all lost.

Bairns continue to chase Hibs

In the Championship, Falkirk's convincing win away to Ayr United means the Bairns move to within six points of leaders Hibs, although they have played a game more.

Falkirk are now four clear of Dundee United, but the Tannadice outfit have two games in hand.

Dumbarton's 4-0 thumping of Raith Rovers means they leapfrog the visitors into seventh place.

Ayr remain in second bottom spot, four behind Rovers, but St Mirren have moved to within four points of the Honest Men after a 0-0 draw with Dunfermline Athletic.

Dons consolidate second place

Niall McGinn's late winner against Motherwell puts Aberdeen nine points clear of third-placed Rangers before the Ibrox side visit leaders Celtic tomorrow.

Hearts and St Johnstone both move closer to Rangers following their wins, with the Edinburgh side five points behind the Glasgow outfit and the Perth outfit another point behind.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle remain bottom, but their late equaliser against sixth-placed Partick Thistle means they are only a point behind Hamilton Accies.

FULL-TIME Ross County 1-2 Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock move above Dundee into seventh place, with County stuck in ninth.

However, the home side will be thankful that Motherwell and Hamilton behind them both lost.

Kilmarnock climbing

Ross County 1-2 Kilmarnock

Martin Dowden

BBC Sport Scotland at Victoria Park

The visitors are on course for a monumental result. Kris Boyd was preparatory for the second goal, but again County will ask questions of some very poor defending.

They'll point to chances, particularly Kenny Van Der Weg's volley that struck the bar, but they're in bother now with a Highland derby to follow next weekend. That'll be tasty.

FULL-TIME Aberdeen 1-0 Motherwell

Aberdeen win to move nine points of third-placed Rangers in the Premiership.

GOAL Aberdeen 1-0 Motherwell

Niall McGinn

Niall McGinn ghosts in to convert Jonny Hayes' cross with a left-foot shot. Dons ahead at last.

FULL-TIME Partick Thistle 1-1 Inverness CT

Bottom side Caley Thistle gain what could be a valuable point against the run of play thanks to Gary Warren's late goal.

GOAL Partick Thistle 1-1 Inverness CT

Gary Warren

Caley Thistle look to have salvaged a point out of the blue as Gary Warren rises to head home a speculative ball into the penalty box from Billy King.

FULL-TIME St Johnstone 2-0 Dundee

GOAL Hearts 4-0 Hamilton

Malaury Martin

Substitute Malaury Martin hits Hearts' fourth and Accies goalkeeper Gary Woods wasn't too clever there. 

Martin lines up a free-kick and fools Woods into thinking he's going for a cross, only to have a dig at the near post that somehow beats the Accies number one.

GOAL Ross County 1-2 Kilmarnock

Kris Boyd

Kilmarnock may have stolen the three points despite Ross County's dominance. 

Kris Boyd just gets his foot to the ball before goalkeeper Aaron McCarey to give Killie the lead.

Partick Thistle 1-0 Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Greg Tansey hasn't found his shooting boots and the Caley Thistle midfielder fires another long-range effort a few yards over the crossbar.

GOAL Forfar Athletic 1-1 Edinburgh City

Derek Riordan

A blast from the past. Former Celtic, Hibernian and Scotland forward Derek Riordan scores for Edinburgh City as they come from behind to draw level with League Two leaders Forfar.

The 34-year-old signed for the League Two newcomers last month.

'County spurred on'

Ross County 1-1 Kilmarnock

Barry Wilson

BBC Scotland at Victoria Park

After a poor first half, it's been a a really exciting second half. Kilmarnock's goal has really spurred Ross County into life and, since their equaliser, it's been all the home side.

Great the goalkeeper

Aberdeen 0-0 Motherwell

Aberdeen break from a corner and Jonny Hayes plays Niall McGinn in on goal, but goalkeeper Craig Samson runs out and gets an important foot on the ball.


Ross County 1-1 Kilmarnock

Alex Schalk attempts a dipping free-kick and he's not far away from giving Ross County the lead, with goalkeeper Freddie Woodman tipping it over.

Then, from the resulting corner, Kenny Van Der Weg has an effort from six yards, but it cracks off the bar.

GOAL Ayr United 1-2 Falkirk

Jonathan Sutherland

BBC Sport Scotland at Tynecastle

Despite the heroics of goalkeeper Gary Woods, it was always unlikely he could defy the odds forever. 

Hearts now fully in control - as they so often are against Hamilton at Tynecastle. 

Accies have offered virtually nothing in attack. 

There are major concerns in both defence and up front for Hamilton.

These will have to be quickly addressed if Accies are to preserve their Premiership status.

Well stubborn at Pittodrie

Aberdeen 0-0 Motherwell

Liam McLeod

BBC Sport Scotland at Pittodrie

Aberdeen still being kept at bay by a stubborn Motherwell. If the Dons are to win this one, it could be Kenny McLean who steps up.

The midfielder has looked in the mood with a possible Scotland call-up on the horizon. 

Dons boss Derek McInnes hasn't been slow to make changes when they've been required recently and we may be getting to that point. 

Well caretaker Stephen Robinson has been animated on the touchline, but this has been decent from his side even if they haven't threatened to score themselves. 

GOAL Ross County 1-1 Kilmarnock

Liam Boyce

A great goal from Liam Boyce; a drilled 22-yard strike beats Kilmarnock goalkeeper Freddie Woodman.

Ross County 0-1 Kilmarnock

Martin Dowden

BBC Sport Scotland at Victoria Park

What a disastrous start to the second half for County, but all credit to Kilmarnock who've been stuffy and took their chance.

They'll now look to pick County off on the break, but Jim McIntyre will be furious at the concession of that goal. A simple throw in, not defended with any authority. All too easy.

GOAL Hearts 3-0 Hamilton Academical

Jamie Walker

The hosts are running away with it now. Jamie Walker nets the third with a cracking curling effort into the top corner direct from a 20-yard free-kick.


Aberdeen 0-0 Motherwell

Kenny McLean's teasing ball across the face of the Motherwell goal only needs a touch to convert, but the visitors survive.

GOAL Partick Thistle 1-0 Inverness CT

Kris Doolan

Kris Doolan prods the ball home at the front post and the Premiership's bottom side are in further trouble.
