The SPFL Premiership is back in action this afternoon with four games taking place across the country – and team news is coming in from around the grounds ahead of kick-off.

While the weather causes problems across the country, all four of this afternoon’s games will go ahead and there should be some fantastic action to come.

There are plenty of potential talking points this weekend too with a basement battle between Dundee and Ross County sure to have big implications on both sides’ survival battles.

Further up the table, the likes of Hibs, Aberdeen and Dundee United will want to close the gap to Hearts and Motherwell in third and fourth.

Livingston or St Mirren could even find themselves drawing level on points with sixth-placed Aberdeen – depending on results – as the Premiership season races toward the split.

Ahead of kick-off at 3, here are the starting XIs from the four SPFL Premiership fixtures:

Dundee v Ross County

Ross County thrashed Dundee earlier this season and James McPake’s side will be looking for some revenge after slipping to the foot of the Premiership table.

Ross County have been scoring far more than their league position suggests and the Staggies will be hoping to make it three wins from three over Dundee this term

Hibs v St Mirren

The Hibees have drawn their last two games 0-0 and Shaun Maloney will be hoping for more from his forwards when the Buddies are the visitors to Easter Road.

Jim Goodwin’s side are unbeaten in their last four games – winning three of them – and could take a big step towards a top six place with three points.

Livingston v Aberdeen

Livingston striker Bruce Anderson scored against his former side in a 2-1 win earlier this season and will be hoping for a repeat this afternoon when Aberdeen visit the Tony Macaroni Arena.

The Dons have been abysmal away from home this season – only Dundee have a worse record – and it wouldn’t be a surprise if they struggle against David Martindale’s side this afternoon.

St Johnstone v Dundee United

Ali Crawford’s last-minute winner over Livingston in midweek lifted the Saints off the foot of the table and Callum Davidson will be desperate to see his side continue where they left off.

A derby draw with Dundee in midweek sees Tam Courts’ Arabs looking to get back to winning ways and with the away team winning both meetings between the sides this season, United will be hoping it is a good omen for them.
