    And there's Pro14 rugby coverage with text and radio commentary of Munster v Glasgow Warriors available via this link.

  2. Kearney unhappy penalty not given

    FT: St Johnstone 2-0 St Mirren

    St Mirren manager Oran Kearney is not happy his side were not given a penalty during the first half of their defeat by St Johnstone, when Danny Mullen was booked for simulation despite clear contact.

    Kearney told BBC Scotland: "We have another very questionable penalty in the first half, the feedback I'm getting from my players was that it's stonewall.

    "Those moments for us are big moments. To go ahead today would give us a big shot in the arm and would have been really important.

    "[Goalkeeper Craig Samson] pulled off a fantastic save in the first half, he then saves the penalty and I'm getting excited going, 'it's our day and things are going to turn' and then the second penalty goes over the bar but I don't feel anyone else is feeling that. The momentum swing didn't come."

  3. GMT on its way

    Remember, the clocks go back overnight but once everyone's had an extra hour in bed, we will be back with live text and radio coverage of tomorrow's Scottish League Cup semi-finals: Hearts v Celtic (13:30) and Aberdeen v Rangers (16:30). Please join us then.

  4. Killie & Saints climb table

    FT: Kilmarnock 1-1 Hamilton, St Johnstone 2-0 St Mirren

    Wins today for Kilmarnock and St Johnstone move both a place higher in the Scottish Premiership.

    Killie go ahead of Celtic and now trail leaders Hearts by five points while St Johnstone overtake Aberdeen into seventh.

    Hamilton's point takes them two points clear of Motherwell and three above second bottom St Mirren.

    However, Celtic, the Dons, Well, Livingston, Rangers and Hibernian all have a game in hand.

  5. A 'decent point' for Kilmarnock

    FT: Kilmarnock 1-1 Hamilton

    Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke on Sportsound: "It was a good performance from Hamilton, I thought they made it really difficult for us. We couldn't find any fluency or rhythm in the game.

    "There will be a lot of people going away today disappointed that we didn't get the win, but for me it's a decent point. It's a point we got when we didn't play at our best."

    Kilmarnock moved second in the Premiership, but Clarke says he is more concerned about their run of form than where they are in the table at the moment.

    He said: "Our position in the league table at this stage of the season is not important to us. It's consistency of performance. It's 13 points out of 15, that's good for us."

  6. Talbot through in cup

    Auchinleck Talbot won their Scottish Cup second-round replay against Cove Rangers today 2-1 and Talbot will meet another Highland League team in round three - Fraserburgh.

  7. 'He didn't deliberately miss the penalty'

    FT: St Johnstone 2-0 St Mirren

    St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright on Sportsound: "We dominated the game from the start.

    "We kept our foot on the gas and kept going forward and made it a difficult afternoon. It's a fully deserved victory and it should have been by more goals."

    Tony Watt missed a first-half chance and a second-half penalty.

    And Wright said: "He got in the right places for the one he misses, it's save of the season from Craig Samson from his header so he's unlucky.

    "He knows he could have scored one or two today but you know I'm happy with him. He's a good lad and he's working extremely hard. He didn't deliberately miss the penalty. So I'm happy with him."

    Tommy Wright
  8. A 'well earned point' for Hamilton

    FT: Kilmarnock 1-1 Hamilton

    Hamilton manager Martin Canning on Sportsound: "We performed well. It's a well earned point and we probably could have nicked it. It's a good point for us considering the last couple of results."

    Steven Boyd was sent off in added time for a second booking.

    And Canning said: "My only complaint would be there was an argument that Aaron Tshibola could have had a red card as well. The second yellow card is unfortunate, he's tried to nick it and he's just caught him late.

    "The frustrating one for me is the first one - it's a foul on Boyd, he doesn't get it, then 10 seconds later he allows his frustration to get the better of him and gives away a free-kick. It's a learning experience."

  9. Duffy makes a big impression

    Scottish Leagues One and Two

    Jim Duffy could not have asked for a better start as Dumbarton manager. The Sons beat third-placed East Fife 4-0 but they are still second bottom of the Scottish League One table. Forfar moved up to fourth by beating second-placed Raith Rovers while Arbroath stretched their lead at the top to seven points.

    League Two leaders Edinburgh City maintained their two-point advantage with a narrow win over Stirling Albion while Annan Athletic moved up to third as they beat Elgin and Clyde slipped a place by losing at home to second-placed Peterhead.

  10. Championship movers

    Championship leaders Ross County remain a point above Ayr United after both won today. Dundee United move up to third and Queen of the South rise to fourth as Inverness Caledonian Thistle slip to fifth.

    It's as you were in the bottom half of the table with Morton fifth, Dunfermline sixth and Partick Thistle, Alloa and Falkirk making up the bottom three.

    But the Bairns now trail the Wasps by five points, with Thistle a point further ahead.

  11. Missed penalties galore

    There's been a trend of missed penalties in Scottish football of late. Dundee's Calvin Miller knocked one wide in midweek against Hearts, Steven Naismith scored one and missed one for Hearts against Aberdeen last weekend and then today St Johnstone failed to convert from the spot twice.

    Stephen Dobbie was also unsuccessful from 12 yards in Queen of the South's Championship win over Falkirk and Paul McMullan was unable to add to his earlier strike in Dundee United's defeat of Dunfermline.

    The result is also good news from bottom side, who are still just a point behind fellow strugglers St Mirren.

    Kilmarnock 1-1 Hamilton

    Substitute Kris Boyd puts in a cross for Stephen O'Donnell, but three Hamilton players are on him in a flash to block his path to goal.

  19. Post update

    Kilmarnock 1-1 Hamilton

    By Kilmarnock's standards, it has been a disappointing performance. Hamilton look the more likely to find a winner, but will they be left to rue James Keatings' horror miss?

  20. GOAL - St Johnstone 2-0 St Mirren

    Matty Kennedy
