Scottish Premiership: Previewing the Weekend's Fixtures (9/11/13)

All six Scottish Premiership games take place on a Saturday this week, with all but one of those—Celtic's trip to Ross County—kicking off at 3pm.

It's a toss-up between Hibernian v Inverness and Motherwell v Dundee Utd for tastiest tie.

The former has the off-the-field dimension of third-place Inverness boss Terry Butcher entering into negotiations with Hibs, currently sitting in seventh, following the resignation of Pat Fenlon a week ago.

The latter, meanwhile, brings together two sides that will be hoping to fight for second place in the table over the coming months.

Motherwell came through a bad spell to defeat Hibs 1-0 last weekend thanks to a Stephen McManus header, while Dundee Utd were only denied a win away to champions Celtic by a last-minute Charlie Mulgrew goal. Both sides will be hoping to kick on this matchday and solidify their challenge for second spot.

Elsewhere in Scotland's top league, the current second-place occupiers, Aberdeen, take on bottom club Hearts after an impressive 4-0 victory over Partick Thistle in midweek.

Partick themselves face St Mirren in a tie that could potentially propel the Jags within reach of a top-six spot. The Buddies, currently second bottom, will be looking to extend their 15-point advantage over Hearts.

Last, but definitely not least, an impressive St Johnstone host inconsistent Kilmarnock in what may end up a battle-of-the-strikers matchup between Stevie May and Kris Boyd.

Here, we take a closer look at the Scottish Premiership fixtures this weekend...
