Get involved

That's enough from me folks. Thanks for your company. We'll do it all again next weekend.

Well, Ian Baraclough and Gary Teale are certainly not happy campers, with both managers far from happy about refereeing decisions today. As ever, we will have online highlights from 18:00 on Sunday and the action will be on Sportscene tomorrow night.

Motherwell manager Ian Baraclough

"The referee and his assistant both appeared to signal a goal. All of sudden both of them change their minds. I've spoken to them and the referee tells me his assistant shouted 'play' and he thought he'd said 'goal'. They're easy to mix up...

"I've looked at it again and his standing foot is on the line and he's cleared it from behind his standing foot.

"We had a strong penalty claim when Stephen Pearson was taken out from the knees."

The bottom three were all beaten today and have lost further ground with those ahead of them after Kilmarnock and Partick Thistle shared four goals at Rugby Park. The Jags started like a train with a goal inside 70 seconds only to find themselves behind before Frederic Frans found the leveller six minutes from time.

St Mirren manager Gary Teale

"It's a big call. I thought both of Yoann Arrquin's bookings were very soft. If I'm cynical, maybe I'd think it was something to do with getting his red card downgraded last week. I've seen it again (the second caution for diving) and James McPake has stood on his foot.

"I'm struggling for words on the second Dundee goal, which was clearly offside.

"We need to start coming up with answers about how we get a home win. Today is a massive kick in the teeth because we started well."

Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara

"It was a hard fought victory for us. Motherwell caused us problems.

"Charlie Telfer is getting better game by game and I'm delighted he got his two goals.

"I think we can play a lot better, there were a few worrying moments at 2-1. We will need to improve for a huge game next weekend."

On Motherwell's disallowed goal, wee Jackie says: "It clearly wasn't over the line".

And let's not forget Dundee United, who are within three points of Aberdeen. Those two meet in next weekend's League Cup semi-finals. I can't remember the other teams involved...

United laboured in the first half against Motherwell but the introduction of Nadir Ciftci gave them more oomph up front and Charlie Telfer underlined his obvious talent with two classy goals.

Motherwell will not be happy about a disallowed goal from the first half. It was one of those 'did it cross the line' moments.

Aberdeen have been widely praised for putting pressure on defending champions Celtic, so I feel it's only right to point out that Inverness are now just one point behind the Dons after a run of five straight wins.

Caley Thistle were under the cosh for much of the first half at New Douglas Park but stepped it up in the second half to run out comfortable 2-0 winners.

Alloa and Raith Rovers drew 0-0 and bottom club Livingston gave themselves a shot in the arm with a thumping 5-1 success at Dumbarton.


St Mirren 1-2 Dundee

The Buddies teased their fans with the prospect of a first home win of the season after Kenny McLean fired them ahead but the visitors hit back with second-half goals from Gary Irvine and Iain Davidson.


Hamilton 0-2 Inverness CT

The 500 or so visiting fans paying 10p to watch this one will go home very happy after seeing their favourites secure a fifth consecutive victory. Accies started well but slumped to a fourth straight loss.


Dundee United 3-1 Motherwell

Charlie Telfer scores twice as Dundee United increase Motherwell's worries. That's five defeats on the spin for Ian Baraclough's team.

St Mirren 1-2 Dundee

We have a player being carried off at St Mirren Park too and it's Dundee goalscorer Iain Davidson.

Hamilton 0-2 Inverness CT

The stretcher is on for Inverness goalkeeper Dean Brill, who looks in some distress with what could be an ankle twist. Ryan Esson is on for the last few moments.


Dundee United 3-1 Motherwell (Telfer)

It's game over at Tannadice you would think as Charlie Telfer tucks in his second goal of the afternoon with a composed finish.


Kilmarnock 2-2 Partick Thistle

It's as you were from the teams occupying eighth and ninth in the Premiership.

Hamilton 0-2 Inverness CT

Accies player-manager Martin Canning may be facing four straight defeats but keeps his cool to dispossess Aaron Doran as the Caley Thistle substitute prepares to shoot after gathering a long ball in the penalty area.

Kilmarnock 2-2 Partick Thistle

We're into injury time at Rugby Park as Kallum Higginbotham curls a free-kick over the defensive wall and Killie keeper Craig Samson makes a comfortable save.

Championship update

Well, with all of those Premiership goals flying in, I didn't get time to tell you about James Kaetings' equaliser for Hearts and since then Craig Sibbald has scored for Falkirk again, so it's 3-2 to the Bairns.

Scott Robertson has doubled Hibs' lead at Queen of the South with a fine strike and Livingston are now 5-0 up at Dumbarton. Alloa and Raith Rovers are letting the side down with no goals so far.


St Mirren 1-2 Dundee

St Mirren striker Yoann Arquin has had a lively start to his career with the Paisley club. He had a red card on his debut rescinded but he's sent for another early bath today, picking up a second yellow card for a dive in the box.


Kilmarnock 2-2 Partick Thistle (Frans)

Partick Thistle defender Frederic Frans pulls the Jags level, directing Declan McDaid's volley into the net from six yards.


Dundee United 2-1 Motherwell (Ramsden)

Motherwell are right back in it as Simon Ramsden volleys in from Lionel Ainsworth's cross.


Hamilton 0-2 Inverness CT (Ross)

Caley Thistle midfielder Nick Ross rounds off a lovely move for Inverness as he sweeps home a Ross Draper lay-off from the edge of the box, giving Michael McGovern no chance.


Kilmarnock 2-1 Partick Thistle (Pascali)

Killie captain Manuel Pascali grabs his first goal of the season. A corner lands at the feet of Mark O'Hara in a congested box and he manages to direct it towards the unmarked Italian who knocks it into the empty net.


St Mirren 1-2 Dundee (Davidson)

Greg Stewart's pass makes it may through to Iain Davidson and his shot takes a deflection to loop it over Mark Ridgers.


Dundee United 2-0 Motherwell (Fojut)

Easy as you like. The towering Jaroslaw Fojut lumbers up for a corner and nods in his fifth goal of the season.

Sean Sievewright on Twitter: "Most surprising scoreline so far is definitely Falkirk winning at Hearts."

The Bairns have come from behind to lead 2-1 at Tynecastle. Can the Jambos hit back and protect their unbeaten league record?

Championship update

Dylan McGeouch tucks away a penalty for Hibernian to give them a 1-0 lead at Queen of the South. Livingston are now 2-0 up at Dumbarton, with Danny Mullen on target.

Kilmarnock 1-1 Partick Thistle

Killie gaffer Allan Johnston is incensed on the touchline as his side are denied a penalty. Robbie Muirhead hits the deck inside the box but referee Willie Collum is uninterested.


Dundee United 1-0 Motherwell (Telfer)

It's a third goal of the season for Charlie Telfer as the Dundee United midfielder gather a pass from Aidan Connolly and fires a shot into the bottom corner from 22 yards.

Dundee United 0-0 Motherwell

Motherwell teenager Luke Watt barges his way into the penalty area and just has Radoslaw Cierzniak to beat but fires straight at the goalkeeper.


Hamilton 0-1 Inverness CT

What a brilliant save by Michael McGovern, who touches Josh Meekings' powerful header from Greg Tansey's corner round the post. It would have been cruel on Accies to go two goals down.

Championship update

We have an upset on the cards at Tynecastle as Rory Loy fires Falkirk into a 2-1 lead. Runaway leaders Hearts find their unbeaten record in peril after taking an early lead.


St Mirren 1-1 Dundee (Irvine)

With the home side claiming for offside, Greg Stewart looks up and picks out Gary Irvine for a simple tap-in.

Kilmarnock 1-1 Partick Thistle

Both goalkeepers are getting plenty touches of the ball but more from aimless balls into the box rather than from a flurry of chances. The first ten minutes of the second half have been poor fare.


Hamilton 0-1 Inverness CT (Gillespie og)

In a swift move into the Accies box Graeme Shinnie lashes a shot at goal that is parried by Michael McGovern but the ball comes out and hits Hamilton player Grant Gillespie and ricochets over the line.

Official ICTFC on Twitter: "SOOOOOOOOOO close. Not sure how Mckay was denied there."


Hamilton 0-0 Inverness CT

Hamilton's Michael McGovern makes a superb save to deny Inverness striker Billy McKay, whose shot from eight yards looked goal-bound all the way.
