Motherwell's match with Hibernian at Fir Park Stadium on Friday was suspended after floodlights at the stadium failed.

New Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon was on the bench for his first game in charge of the club, and he saw his team take the lead in the 16th minute through Garry O'Conner, who followed up a shot from Leigh Griffith that struck the post to fire home the rebound.

However, the game had to be abandoned after a failure with the floodlights at halftime, leaving Fenlon to wait a bit longer for his first win as Hibs manager.

Rangers has taken just one point from its last two games, allowing Celtic to close to within four points at the top of the league.

And Ally McCoist's men will try to get back into the win column on Saturday at home against Dunfermline, which is winless in its last three games.

Celtic has taken advantage of the recent stumbles by Rangers as the Hoops have won four straight games and will look for a fifth successive victory on Sunday at Dundee United.

St Johnstone and Hearts meet up at Tynecastle Stadium in a battle of top-five teams with both sides coming off of a win last time out, Aberdeen tries to snap a four-game winless streak at Kilmarnock and last-place Inverness visits a St Mirren side that lost 5-0 to Celtic in its last match.
