Hibs hopes to secure safety

With the league title already decided, as well as a number of other places in the Scottish Premier League, one of the only things left to determine is which team will be heading down next season.

And that answer could come on Monday as last-place Dunfermline visits 11th- place Hibernian with Hibs needing only a draw to secure safety and send Dunfermline down next season.

A 2-1 win at Aberdeen on Wednesday moved Hibernian five points clear with two games to go, while Dunfermline has been able to stave off relegation with a three-game unbeaten run.

Rangers has already locked up second place in the league and hosts a Motherwell side which will finish the season in third after winning back-to- back games.

Aberdeen has lost four times in its last seven games and visits Kilmarnock, while the other match on Saturday matches St Mirren with Inverness.

League champions Celtic visit Dundee United on Sunday with United owning one win from its last four games.

Sunday's other battle still has significance as Hearts entertains St Johnstone with both clubs fighting for a place in the Europa League.

St Johnstone enters the contest one point clear of the home side, which has dropped to sixth place after a winless run of three games.
