    OK, I'll call it a day here. Thanks very much for so many valuable contributions throughout the afternoon by text, on Twitter and on Facebook. It's greatly appreciated. We'll be adding match reports and reaction to the website in the next few hours, and we'll be back tomorrow for Hamilton's trip to Celtic.

  2. Post update

    St Mirren manager Gary Teale

    "We didn't deserve anything out the game. Aberdeen were excellent. I am disappointed at all three goals. It's the lapses of concentration that are costing us just now. If we can finish in 10th position, that is the challenge, so that we are in this league next season. I thought John McGinn was excellent. He kept going right to the end. We need more of that determination."

  3. Post update

    Aberdeen are level on points with Celtic, who play Hamilton on Sunday, and the Glasgow side also have another game in hand.

  4. Post update

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes

    "I thought all areas of the team were excellent. We got on top of them (St Mirren) early on. We scored a good first goal. The conditions weren't great, with a gusty wind, and the pitch was very dry. We asked the players to be more demanding in the second half - more crosses and more balls into space. At 2-0 we got a wee bit gung-ho. I saw Shay Logan bombing on when it wasn't needed. The back four and goalkeeper were excellent. We've enjoyed today. The players are in fine fettle. I think we could get stronger."

  33. GOAL

    Partick Thistle 1-3 Ross County (Fraser)

    In no time at all, County re-assert themselves in the match as Marcus Fraser gives the visitors a two-goal cushion with 20 minutes remaining. And what a goal it was! The full-back skipped past two Thistle challenges before battering the ball beyond Paul Gallacher.

  34. GOAL

    Partick Thistle 1-2 Ross County (Taylor)

    Well, it looks as if County are going to have to work hard for all three points at Firhill as Lyle Taylor heads home Kallum Higginbotham's corner to give the Jags hope.

  69. GREAT SAVE!

    Alasdair Lamont at Firhill

    "Great save by Mark Brown to keep County in front. Christie Elliott's deep ball is headed back across goal by Stephen O'Donnell and Ryan Stevenson directs it towards the top corner, only for Brown to claw it away. Better from the home side in the last few minutes."

  87. GOAL

    Well, if things were bad for Motherwell with Craig Curran getting that goal for Ross County, matters look even more serious now that Paul McGinn has put the Dark Blues ahead. As things stand, Well are bottom of the table.

  92. GOAL

    Dundee United 0-1 St Johnstone (O'Halloran)

    St Johnstone hit the front at Tannadice and it's a bad start for Dundee United keeper Michal Szromnik, who got the nod ahead of Radoslaw Cierzniak.

    Partick Thistle welcome Ross County to Firhill hoping the visit of the league's basement team will give them their best chance to break their five-game run without a win. However, boss Alan Archibald is forced into three changes as Paul Gallacher replaces the injured Scott Fox in goal, while Conrad Balatoni and Stuart Bannigan drop to the bench as Dan Seaborne and Ryan Stevenson return to the starting line-up. County boss Jim McIntyre names the same 11 which picked up their first win in 13 games against relegation rivals Motherwell last week. The Staggies are hoping to win back-to-back games for the first time this season and keep themselves in touch with Well and St Mirren, both three points in front.

  107. Post update

    Inverness name an unchanged line-up for the meeting with Kilmarnock from the side that beat St Mirren a week ago. Marley Watkins continues in his role up front, with youngsters Cammy Mackay, Alisdair Sutherland and Calum Ferguson on the bench. Kilmarnock make three changes from the 11 that saw off Dundee United at Rugby Park. Alexei Eremenko (suspended), Chris Chantler and Sammy Clingan come out of the side for Ross Barbour, Mark O'Hara and Nathan Eccleston, who is making his first start.

  108. Post update

    Aberdeen have made one change from their comprehensive win over Hamilton last week for the visit of St Mirren. Willo Flood returns to the starting line-up in place of the injured Jonny Hayes, lining up in midfield alongside former Saints man Kenny McLean, who made the move to Pittodrie less than three weeks ago. Buddies manager Gary Teale is serving a one-match touchline ban but makes two changes to the side defeated by Inverness last week. Midfielder Lewis McLear and defender Jeroen Tesselaar come in, with Stevie Thompson and former Don Isaac Osbourne drop to the bench to sit alongside new signing Alan Gow.

    "To win 3-0 and 4-0 in our last two games shows the character of the team. The challenge for us now is to keep it going, to make it 13 (league) games undefeated."

    Steven, Raith fan, Kirkcaldy: "Was at Stark's Park last night and there was nothing 'alleged' about the sectarian singing. Could be heard loud and clear even from the home end. If the club can't be held responsible for sectarian singing then how will it be eradicated? The clubs have 'done all they can' yet still it persists. New approach needed by the SPFL. Enough is enough. This shames our game and Scotland."

    One of the talking points today has been the inclusion in the report of the match delegate for Rangers' game at Raith Rovers last night about alleged sectarian chanting by some of the visiting fans at Stark's Park. The Scottish Professional Football League should receive the report at the start of the week and will then decide what action, if any, to take.
