The Scottish Championship is a league like no other & it was another jam packed weekend of action with league leaders dropping points, disruption for Dundee & a manager dismissal for Ayr.

Hearts travelled to the Highlands to take on Inverness CT on Friday settling for a 1-1 draw with Jambos boss Robbie Neilson sitting in the stand at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium following a 2 match ban.

Miles Storey gave Caley the lead inside 10 minutes capitalising on Michael Smith’s inadequate header to Craig Gordon & Storey guided the ball into the bottom left corner beyond Craig Gordon. Liam Boyce levelled midway through the half from close range.

Arbroath are unbeaten in 2021 & kept that run going with a fine 1-0 win away to Ayr United which was the last of the summer wine for boss Mark Kerr who departed by mutual consent. Kerr, only savoured a 31% win rate from 41 games during the last 14 months in the hot seat at Somerset Park.

Another form team in Queen Of The South picked up their 3rd win on the trot beating Dunfermline Athletic 1-0, Willie Gibson coming up with another valuable 3 points for Allan Johnston’s men again.

Raith Rovers jumped into 2nd coming from behind to beat Alloa Athletic 3-1, John McGlynn admitted post-match that he was apprehensive heading into the match however will be happy to come away with all 3 points against The Wasps.

Greenock Morton & Dundee drew 2-2 with Dundee boss James McPake revealing in a long 15-minute interview with the written press post-match that Charlie Adam picked up COVID-19 alongside preparations for the assignment at Cappielow getting hit with training being cancelled prior to Saturday.

Craig McGuffie gave Morton the lead before Jason Cummings added his 2nd goal since arriving at the Kilmac Stadium, Luca Colville had Anton McElhone’s side in front again on 69 minutes with sub Danny Mullen equalising 9 minutes from time.
