Another enthralling weekend of Scottish Championship action took place, unless you were in Inverness of course! No disrespect Inverness & Raith Rovers!

The relegation scrap took another twist in Dumfries with Alloa Athletic claiming the bragging rights over Queen Of The South again winning 3-2 with both Ayo Obileye & Rhys McCabe getting marching orders for the hosts.

Innes Murray, Lee Connolly & Liam Buchanan got the goals for Peter Grant’s men with Queens replying through Dapo Mebude & Euan East. This ended a run of 5 games without defeat for Allan Johnston’s men, ironically against Alloa.

Consistency remains in Gorgie with Hearts beating Ayr United 2-0 in what was David Hopkin’s curtain raiser as Ayr United boss. Armand Gnanduillet & Jamie Walker on the scoresheet for the hosts. That’s now 8 games unbeaten for Robbie Neilson’s men.

Morton & Arbroath continue to battle it out at the bottom end of the Championship & both suffered defeats at Dunfermline & Dundee respectively.

A 1st half Craig Wighton goal was enough for the Pars to succeed despite the forward missing a penalty despite missing a penalty earlier in the half. It was a big win for Stevie Crawford’s men moving into 2nd.

Dundee dispatched Arbroath 2-0 with the Dees having Adam Legzdins to thank for a 1st half penalty save from Michael McKenna, after a stale opening 45 minutes, Dundee sealed all 3 points with Danny Mullen & Max Anderson scoring.

Inverness CT & Raith Rovers finished 0-0

Tuesday night sees Dundee host Ayr United & Raith Rovers & Inverness meet in Kirkcaldy eager to get some goals to liven things up.

The weekend sees Alloa host Dundee on Friday evening before Arbroath entertain Hearts, Ayr take on Raith, Dunfermline meet Inverness with Morton & QOTS keen to get back to winning ways.
