  1. Good night

    We will publish the highlights of tonight's two Premiership games at midnight. If you can stay up, you'll see some cracking goals, but if it's now time for your beddy-baw-baws then watching them can be your Wednesday morning treat while you munch your toast and marmalade. Thanks very much for joining us once again here at BBC Scotland. We'll be back for more tomorrow night, when Inverness travel to Dundee in desperate need of a win, Rangers host Aberdeen and St Johnstone welcome Hearts. All the best.

  2. Accies' bad luck is 'scary' - Canning

    FT: Ross County 3-2 Hamilton

    Hamilton boss Martin Canning is bemoaning Accies' misfortune after a heart-breaking last-ditch defeat at Ross County which condemns them to a relegation play-off at best, and gives bottom side Inverness faint hope of overhauling them.  

    "It seems to to be the way things have been going," Canning told BBC Scotland. "I can't believe we have lost that game. We have hit the post, had numerous other opportunities and their second goal has come off the back of our keeper and gone in. That is when you know your luck is out.

    "The amount of bad luck we have got tonight is scary. I couldn't ask more of the players. I asked them to be brave and it was one of our best performances of the season. How we have managed to lose that game, I don't know."

  3. McCulloch downbeat

    FT Motherwell 3-1 Kilmarnock

    Kilmarnock interim manager Lee McCulloch: "Two set-plays cost us, and a breakaway goal. Overall it's disappointing to lose but the manner of the goals was even more disappointing. I'm delighted with the first half, we were by far the better team, but in the second half you could probably argue that Motherwell deserved it with the way they pressed and hit us on the counter-attack."

  4. 'Nothing to celebrate' about staying up - Robinson

    FT: Motherwell 3-1 Kilmarnock

    Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson admits it is a a feeling of "relief, more than mass celebration" after ensuring Premiership safety.

    "We have not given the fans a super season, so there is nothing to celebrate," he tells BBC Radio Scotland. "But we have managed to stay up with back-to-back victories and we are delighted with that.

    "The young boy [David Ferguson] had a hard night against Jordan Jones who is an excellent footballer I know well, and in the end we put Chris Cadden against him and I thought he was absolutely outstanding.  Lionel [Ainsworth] came on and scored a great goal but Chris is the boy who won us the match."

  6. 'We picked Accies' pocket tonight'

    FT Ross County 3-2 Hamilton

    Ross County manager Jim McIntyre: "It was a very open game. We started the game brilliantly, scored a fantastic goal through Michael Gardyne, but Hamilton came right back into it. It was one of those nights with plenty of mistakes and lots of goalmouth action. We've had our pockets picked here before in Dingwall with late goals. I feel we picked theirs tonight. I feel for Hamilton tonight but it's all about our team doing what we can do, trying to get into that fight for seventh. We know that we have the quality that can hurt sides but the doggedness wasn't quite there tonight and that is the side that we need to improve for Saturday. I thought Hamilton's players gave their manager everything. I wish them well for their fight to stay up."

  7. Modest Craigen's cracker

    FT Dundee United 2-2 Falkirk

    Falkirk scorer James Craigen: "It was end to end, a really high tempo, but it is a good draw to take back to the Falkirk Stadium. We will give it a good go on Friday night. It will be a tough game but we are confident. (For the goal) I felt I had made good contact with the ball. All you want to do is make good contact and fingers crossed it goes in."

  8. Fresh Bairns, tiring Terrors

    FT Dundee United 2-2 Falkirk

    Steven Thompson

    Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound

    "Both teams put everything into the match. With only three days' recovery, when you look at the changes Falkirk were able to make, come the last 20 minutes of this game on Friday night Peter Houston will have the luxury of bringing on fresh, fast, energetic players."

  9. 'In the balance'

    FT Dundee United 2-2 Falkirk

    Dundee United manager Ray McKinnon: "I enjoyed the game. It was interesting. Credit to my team, on the back of two games last week they have come out and given everything tonight. The game is still in the balance for Friday. Blair Spittal is doing great and Simon Murray is always a threat. We can go down there and win and we will go with a really positive mentality. We would like to have taken a win down there but it makes it very interesting now. It will be an open game because both teams want to win it. Stewart Murdoch, who has done fantastic at right-back since he came in to the team, I think has done his sartorius muscle (thigh strain). He was feeling it slightly prior to the game but he wanted to play, but he's gone and done, which is a real blow to us."

  10. Cheers all round

    FT Motherwell 3-1 Kilmarnock

    The Motherwell players parade round the Fir Park pitch engaging in a bit of mutual applause with their fans. They put in quite a shift for the club did the players.

  11. Houston 'more than confident'

    FT Dundee United 2-2 Falkirk

    Falkirk manager Peter Houston: "It was a terrific game, both teams had a go. We showed great character. Tinkering with our system worked because it spooked them a bit. I thought for 10 minutes of the first half we lost it but for the rest of the game we more or less dominated. I was delighted with our performance. If we'd got in front, we'd have made it more difficult. We had the bottle to come back from it twice. I'd like to have seen it the opposite. We look forward to Friday night now. We are more than confident that we can make the final of the play-off again.

    "Joe (McKee) has been unlucky with injuries since he came (to us). He's a delightful player with the ball. He has great composure and has a great shot on him."

  12. Caley Thistle hanging on

    With Dundee safe, will they have the same appetite for tomorrow night's match as Inverness who, you can be sure, will be fired up by manager Richie Foran for the game at Dens? Caley Thistle really need a win, because a draw would leave them three points adrift of 11th-placed Accies and with a goal difference seven worse than the Lanarkshire men.

  13. Great night for Well and Dundee

    Motherwell's win and Hamilton's desperately unlucky defeat away to Ross County not only means Stephen Robinson's men are safe; it also ensures that Dundee are safe from the relegation play-offs. Either Inverness or Hamilton will be relegated automatically.

  14. A satisfying first course

    Dundee United 2-2 Falkirk

    Kenny Crawford

    BBC Sport Scotland at Tannadice

    A scintillating football match and it really whets the appetite for what awaits us on Friday night in Falkirk!

    I've got a feeling Bairns boss Peter Houston might have something to say about the disallowed goal!


    Motherwell 3-1 Kilmarnock

    The Steelmen are safe! They have avoided the stress of the play-offs.

  16. The countdown to safety

    Motherwell 3-1 Kilmarnock

    Well striker Scott McDonald does a bit of Riverdance-style twinkle toes before knocking the ball off the shins of his opponent to win a throw-in and waste another few seconds.

    Stoppage time at Fir Park. The home fans are on their feet, ready to celebrate safety.


    Dundee United 2-2 Falkirk

    A hugely entertaining contest at Tannadice and Dundee United and Falkirk are tied going into the second leg of their Premiership play-off semi-final on Friday.

    Who will prevail and face either Hamilton Academical or Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the final?

    Ross County 3-2 Hamilton

    Martin Dowden

    BBC Sport Scotland at Victoria Park

    Hamilton have been so unlucky, they really have. 

    They've put so much into this. To leave with nothing is so cruel. Thye've simply had no luck.

    County deserve real credit though as they were in a real contest tonight and look to have come through it.

    It's a play-off or worse for Hamilton now with County looking clear in seventh.


    Dundee United 2-2 Falkirk

    How did Robbie Thomson save that?

    The Falkirk goalkeeper was off his line as Thomas Mikkelsen sent a looping header towards goal but somehow Thomson got back to palm away.
