  16. TEXT 80295

    Simon Boendermaker tweets: "Cant say I'm too surprised Goodwin gets the first red of the season, doubt it'll be his last... #bbcsportscot"

  20. CLOSE!

    Dundee 1-1 Kilmarnock

    Dundee are inches away once more, as Gary Harkins powers in on goal, with goalkeeper Craig Samson the Kilmarnock hero yet again. It's down to him that his team are still in the game.


    Time beginning to run out in today's Scottish fixtures. Few sides have a comfortable lead across the four divisions so goals now could definitely prove decisive.


    Dundee 1-1 Kilmarnock

    Craig Samson beats the ball away to keep Kilmarnock level after Luka Tankulic batters in a shot for Dundee.

  23. Motherwell 1-0 St Mirren

    Jim Goodwin was dismissed for St Mirren, his second yellow card for dissent coming after a first-half booking for a poor tackle.

    Goodwin has been shown 51 yellow cards and four reds in his time at St Mirren.


    Hamilton Academical 0-2 Inverness CT

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland senior football reporter at New Douglas Park

    "Marley Watkins, just off the bench, clatters the crossbar from just inside the box. Clearly a Caley Thistle goal now would finish this as a contest."

  25. RED CARD

    Motherwell 1-0 St Mirren

    Jim Goodwin picks up the first red card of the Scottish Premiership season, the St Mirren player-coach receiving a second yellow card for dissent.

  26. Hamilton 0-2 Inverness

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland senior football reporter at New Douglas Park

    "Big shout from Accies for a penalty there. Beautiful back-heel by Mickael Antoine-Curier puts Imrie in on goal. He tries to play the ball across the box and it appears to come off a Caley Thistle arm but the referee says no penalty. Then Antoine-Curier gets a chance himself but Brill saves well."

  27. Dundee 1-1 Kilmarnock

    Killie have a go this time, as Josh Magennis finds some space, but skews his strike wide. Both teams are really going for it.

  28. Motherwell 1-0 St Mirren

    St Mirren are pushing for an equaliser and Motherwell goalkleeper Dan Twardzik has to look sharp to tip away a Jason Naismith shot.


    Hamilton Academical 0-2 Inverness CT

    Dean Brill makes a fine save after Mikael Antoine Curier goes clean through on the Inverness goal.

  35. Dundee 1-1 Kilmarnock

    Kilmarnock's Alexei Eremenko comes on for the final half-hour. The visitors will hope his craft can unlock the Dundee defence.

  36. Hamilton 0-2 Inverness

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland senior football reporter at New Douglas Park

    "This is really very comfortable for Inverness Caley Thistle. Ali Crawford has made a bit of a difference for Accies since coming on at the start of the second half, but this looks like a match between an experienced Premiership side and one with very little top-flight experience, which it is.

    "Hamilton goalkeeper Michael McGovern gets down to his right to keep out a Greg Tansey free-kick."

  37. Hamilton 0-2 Inverness CT

    Ryan Christie's tap-in doubled the Inverness lead at Hamilton.

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland senior football reporter at New Douglas Park

    "Great run by Stephen Hendrie down the Accies left and his cross is met at the back post by the head of Dougie Imrie, but Dean Brill keeps the effort out."

  43. CLOSE!

    Motherwell 0-0 St Mirren

    Gregg Wylde passes up the best chance of the match so far, when he elects to shoot from a tight angle after dribbling his way into the box, with St Mirren Kenny McLean in a better position waiting on a cut-back.

  44. Dundee 1-1 Kilmarnock

    Straight from kick-off Gary Harkins drives into the Kilmarnock box, but Craig Samson is equal to his shot. Paul McGowan then tests Samson with a powerful shot.

  45. KICK-OFF

    Matches resuming now.

  46. Post update

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland at Central Park

    "It's been a pretty poor game at Central Park with very few chances in front of goal, but the hosts won't care about that as they've got a goal from one of only two real openings.

    "Lewis Milne's slotted finish is his second strike in as many games. Falkirk boss Peter Houston will need to give his players a kick up the backside at half-time as there will be harder games than this to come in the Championship in the next few weeks."

    Stevie May on the St Johnstone website

    "I'm delighted. Wednesday are a big club and it didn't take much persuasion for me to decide that they were the club to join.

    "Leaving Saints is a wrench but last season was a great one for everyone at the club and I think we did ourselves proud in this season's Europa League so it's a good way to bow out.

    "I want to say a huge thank you to everyone at the club - the gaffer and all the staff, the other players, everyone else involved at the club and especially to the fans -the way they have treated me since I got involved in the first team has been unbelievable and I'll never forget it."
