Good afternoon and welcome to the Results Show.
So we're only on for 40 minutes this week.
Like Ronny Deila, I asked for more time, but I'm not getting it.
One used to play for Celtic and Dundee United,
The games are afoot, so let's get the stories so far from
We can go to Pittodrie Stadium. 2-0 to the Dons. A poor opening 45. The
points look safe for Aberdeen here at Pittodrie. Off we go to our next
port of call which is going to be at Tynecastle Stadium. Hearts play
Hamilton. The points look safe here for the home side. Hearts leading by
2-0 against Hamilton. Goals in the first half from Buaben Abankwah and
Sutchuin-Djoum. Johnstone are home to Kilmarnock. A super start by the
visitors. Smith powering in an header off the bar. St Johnstone
eased back into it. O'Halloran slotted McDonald. They were rewarded
when Kane powered home a second. Strong comeback from them thechl are
on target for another win here. 2-1 up St Johnstone. Motherwell at home
to Inverness. It's good reading for Inverness at this stage. They lead
by 3-1. Tansey penalty was twice taken. A Storey strike before the
interval put Inverness 2-0 up. Vigurs made it three. Moult has
pulled one back for Motherwell. To Dens Park. Dundee against Partick
Thistle. Lindsay's first goal for Thistle. They are en route for all
three points. A simple header from a corner. Dundee have been poor. They
have little chance of a comeback as things stand. Rangers at home to
Alloa. Rangers 3, Alloa 0. Rangers looked to have rediscovered winning
ways on Remembrance Day. Waghorn and Tavernier scored making it 3-0
against Alloa who are down to 10-men. Now to Hibs against St
Mirren. Cummings got his 18 of the season along can Keatings. Kelly
gave St Mirren the lead. Anything striding you, Mark? Not too many
surprises. Inverness 3-1 up? Probably that one out of them all. I
thought Motherwell, after getting the win last week, I thought would
have kept them on. I was perhaps expecting a better performance.
Great for John Hughes going down there and Vigurs getting a goal. He
must have worked that one after being released in the summer.
Aberdeen worth their 2-0 lead? I think so. From the bits and pieces
we have seen, Aberdeen have had plenty of the ball. It's no surprise
to me I think they have managed to get something in this game. Hayes
created one and scored one. When Aberdeen were at their best they
were providing the opportunity and players couldn't pin them down. It
wouldn't surprise me if Aberdeen went on another run. St Johnstone
2-1 up. They are in-form. They are. They are scoring goals. Last season
they were defending so well, getting the odd goal. They seemed to have
got it right at both ends. Defending resolutely, they are scoring a lot
of goals. O'Halloran is in the form of his life. You would bank him on
scoring in every game. St Johnstone scored 27 goals this season. Last
season, in total, they scored 34. They never really did sign a
replacement for Stevie May or provide the regular goalscoring he
did for the team. O'Halloran added that to his game. He is in good
form. Getting in behind teams. Using his pace and more experienced. You
can't underplay the sporns of Stevie McClean. He was a great player for
them, link play, providing support for Stevie May. When he is fit he is
a big part of that team. It's helpful, he is reworking his defence
at the moment. Hearts 2-0 up at home to Hamilton. We were watching
pictures. Seems comfortable? Straight-forward for Hearts. They
have been very impressive today in and around the box. Their passing
and inter play has been impressive. The goal was terrific, terrific
composure. Hamilton haven't really offered anything in an attacking
sense. Partick Thistle. I look at the form of both teams,
notwithstanding Thistle's defeat last week. They are doing well.
Dundee not doing well. However, they have just scored? We can get the
details. It didn't look as if they would score this afternoon, they
have. It's is Hemmings who came on. Good build-up play involving Stuart
and Loy. It's game on here. Five minutes left. It's Dundee 1, Partick
Thistle 1. A word for Dundee when I said what a bad run they were in.
Let us see if it wins for St Mirren. No! Richard said, typical Hibs. Put
in an impressive performance last week and then one behind. You feared
it would be a slipup. Hibs have battled away and ran away with that
one. Tough times for St Mirren. They will be the top-scorers in the
Championship today. We fancied Rangers to come up with a big score.
They were ahead early on against Alloa. Are you surprised they
haven't increased that lead A little bit. Alloa have the worst defensive
record and the bottom team. If you have lost a gameplaying the bottom
side is the perfect fixture for Rangers at home. They scored their
three goals early. We expected them to add to the scoreline. Maybe Alloa
have pinned everyone behind the ball and they are down to 10-men. It
wouldn't surprise me if there were late goals. Rangers have kept going
to the 90th minute and scored a lot of goals. That is when their fitness
tells there. Might be additional goals in that game. Getting back on
winning ways was important after losing out to Hibs. Now back to the
grounds. Rooney and Hayes with the goals for the home side. A poor
first half. Shinnie and Flood had decent chances inside the box.
Shinnie's effort well save. Flood's half-volley high. Hayes whipped the
ball in from the left hand side. United failed to deal with it.
Rooney got his ninth goal of the season from close-range. United
started to sneak forward, perhaps sensing they had nothing to lose.
They were punished by an individual piece of brilliance by Hayes,
bursting down the left hand side. Fired low and into the back of the
net. After that it's pretty much been all Aberdeen. The side's
performance has been rubbish with a capital "R" I can't manage the
manager will have much to say after capital "R" I can't manage the
this. Let us hear from Alasdair Lamont. Are they still two up? They
are. They are easing to victory here. It's been pretty comfortable
for them. They have never been outlassed but second best to Hearts.
Buaben Abankwah scored from 25-yards out. The keeper might have felt he
should have kept it out. It fired past him and into the net. They made
a gool save from a header at 1-0. Hearts then scored their second as
Wilson was rightly saying, terrific composure inside the area after the
cross from the left side from Nicolson. Unselfish play to set up
Sutchuin-Djoum for a tap-in. Comfortable for Hearts in this
second-half. Hearts might have scored one or two more but for a
couple of good saves. 2-, edging towards three-points away from
league leaders Celtic. There has been a red card at
McDiarmid Park. I was about to say this is comfortable for St
Johnstone, but a red card, it appeared to be a 2 footed challenge
on Stephen Smith. It's not clear if he got the ball. Off the party went.
Three minutes or so left. They fought back from the opening goal,
O'Halloran and Kane scoring. Is there a thrilling climax at Fir
Park? Let's find out. Motherwell are trying to make it that way, but
Inverness are still leading 3-1. Inverness took the lead through a
retaken penalty by Greg Tansey. His first effort was superbly saved. The
referee felt there was encroachment from the Motherwell defenders into
the box before he had struck the effort. He got the chance to retake
it and took it down the middle to open the scoring. Miles Storey fired
Inverness to open the scoring. Miles Storey fired Inverness two Liam
Grimshaw hit the crossbar for Motherwell, but it would not go in.
Iain Vigurs increased the lead to 3-1, with a sweet volley from just
inside the box, straight off the training ground. Corner from Greg
Tansey, found Iain Vigurs arriving late and he whacked it into the back
of the net. Louis Moult has pulled one back for Motherwell. 1-3, six
minutes left to play. Let's find out if there is any sign of a winner
between Dundee and Partick Thistle. One-way traffic at the moment, after
that Hemmings equaliser at 85 minutes. It was probably deserved,
they have pummelled the Partick Thistle goal in this half. Liam
Lindsey, with his first ever goal early on. 5067 inside dens Park. The
home side were booed off at half-time, they will be cheering if
they can grab a winner. We will set to Ibrox again. Any advance on 3-0?
No, into injury time, waiting to see how many minutes. Fairly easy stuff
for Rangers. The fans might be disappointed they didn't build on
their lead. Martyn Waghorn, cool as you like, chesting and volleying
after a mix-up from the Alloa defenders, and a weak clearance from
the keeper. 2-0 on 14 minutes, a trademark James Tavernier free
kick, 25 yards out. It curled into the top corner. He's now on ten
goals for the season, and he's a right back. Alloa had a chance to
get back into it, the former Newcastle and Sunderland striker
Michael Chopra, he hit the bar. They were made to pay for missing the
chance. Three -0144 minutes, Martyn Waghorn again. A volley from about
ten yards out. As I said, Rangers have not built on it. Alloa are down
to ten men. Eddie Ferns sent off. There is about a minute of injury
time left. Safe to say that Rangers will get all three points. The other
teams in the top three in the Championship, it's looking good for
them. The Gurney, 4-1 up, a hat-trick for James Keatings.
Another go at Ibrox. Let's rejoin Kenny. Just what I said it looked
like it was said to be 3-0, it has turned into 4-0. I am pretty sure it
is Nicky Clarke with the goal, a header into the top right corner,
following a bit of pressure from Rangers. It looks like Nicky
Clarke, who scored two against Alloa last season, he's got another one.
Lots happening around the country. I am intrigued about what John Barnes
said about the Iain Vigurs goal, straight off the training ground.
Does that happen a lot? Did you ever score one off the training ground? I
didn't score many, all of mine worth looks. -- were flukes. It's great
when it comes off. We were watching the Aberdeen pictures coming in, the
way they celebrated, the players were almost delirious? It will be
relief, they had a horrible run of form. They went from one extreme to
another, eight wins and then suddenly losing games. It's just
getting it off their backs, get a win and feel better. Full-time at
Pittodrie. Their dire run is over, the Irish pair of Rooney and Hayes
with the goals. The first half was dreadfully dull. It was played
almost exclusively in the Dundee United half. Shinnie and Flood came
closest. Just minutes after the break, Hayes floated in a cross from
the left. The United defence didn't hear it and Adam Rooney nodded home
his ninth of the season. United were punished by some individual
brilliance from Johnny Hayes. He lashed the ball low into the bottom
corner. United remain anchored to the foot of the table. It finished
2-0. And then scheduled interaction on the line, I apologise. Let's join
the uninterrupted Brian MacLachlan. It finished 1-0. It looked like all
three points would be heading to Maryhill, especially after Liam
Linsey scored with his first ever goal for Partick Thistle after five
minutes. He jumped well ahead of the defence to head at home. They had
chances to increase their lead as well. They had a free header at the
back post, into the side netting. Dundee could not find their stride.
Booed off at half-time, slightly better in the second half.
Eventually, they did find their way through. Substitute Hemmings, five
minutes from time, slotted the ball home after good play from Loy Ann
Steward. That is the way it finished in front of 5067 fans. Let's beat a
path to Perth. That was being watched by Martin. Full-time, 2-0.
St Johnstone strengthen their grip on fourth place on the Premiership
after coming from behind for their third successive league victory.
Stephen Smith's header clipped the underside of the crossbar and went
in. They took some time to recover, but they worked their way back in.
Stephen McClane teed up but Halloran. They went ahead when Chris
Kane found space to draw a powerful shot past Jamie McDonnell. Despite a
late red card for Liam Craig, they held out for a win. Hearts's form
has been continuing as well. Yes, good form that they are not the
moment. This is their sixth match unbeaten in the lead, a fourth
straight win. That has moved them within three points of Celtic. An
assured when. At times it was ill tempered. The home side stamped the
authority on the game with goals from Prince Buaben and then a tap in
from Arnaud Djoum. The away team have gone five games without a win.
Impressive stuff from Hearts. Wright, off we go to St Mirren Park
in the Championship, they were at home to head in the Championship,
they were at home to header -- Hibs. Great life at the moment if you
support Hibs. Not so much for St Mirren. Hibs were fantastic. Some of
the play was terrific. Most of the action in the first half. A goal
from Sean Kelly put St Mirren in front, a good finish after the Hibs
defence could not clear the corner. James Keatings got two in two
minutes. Both left foot finishes. The second one was absolutely
terrific from 25 yards out. The second half, not so much action.
Keatings got his hat-trick on the 78th minute. A of head-to-head about
who was going to take the penalty. It was low, past the goalkeeper.
Terrific week for Hibs, not so good for St Mirren. But Hibs have to keep
winning if Rangers keep winning, today they did it in style. We stay
in the Championship, Raith Rovers, at home to Falkirk. Finished one -
two. Falkirk opened a 6-point gap over Raith Rovers in the
Championship. The first half had been pretty poor, lacking quality
and full of long balls. No real short, passing football. It sparked
into life on 41 minutes. A slip by Danny Rogers allowed in Mark
Stewart, who reacted quickly and rolled the ball into the back of the
net. Falkirk replied two minutes later, Alston tapped at home. In
Falkirk took the lead. It was an impressive goal from Baird. Raith
Rovers searched for an equaliser, but Danny Rogers redeemed himself in
the Falkirk goal and he did it again in the final minutes. A great effort
from John Daly. If you are wondering why we have not had a full-time
reporter from Motherwell against Inverness, it is because they are
still playing. Over to Ibrox in the Championship match there. Was 4-0.
Rangers rediscovering winning ways with a resounding victory over
relegation threat of Alloa. Clinical strikes by Martyn Waghorn and James
Tavernier had the wasps worrying about a stinging defeat. Michael
Tavernier had the wasps worrying Chopra pulled one back before by
Korn volleyed in a third. Edward Ferns was sent off for Alloa. Not
quite the 7-0 scoreline Rangers beat Alloa buy in 2012, but enough to
keep the gap at the top to five points. Still playing at Fir Park.
John Barnes has something to tell us. They have just actually finished
in the last few seconds a few seconds before that, Stephen McManus
was sent off, the Motherwell captain. It was his second yellow
card of the afternoon. It was a on Danilo -- Danny Lopez. The referee
then blew the whistle on a very competitive match, which ended up a
comfortable win for Inverness, when you look at the scoreline, 3-1. John
Hughes will have enjoyed this one. A touchline ban meant he watched the
action from the stand. He will have seen Greg Tansey scoring from the
penalty spot after ten minutes. It was retaken, the judgment of
encroachment by the Motherwell defenders. It was saved by, Ripley
the first time. Miles Storey added another, and Iain Vigurs made a 3-0.
Louis Moult pulled a goal back for Motherwell. It was nothing more than
a consolation. Inverness pick up their first win in five matches. It
finished 1-3. Thanks very much. That takes us nicely onto the classified
round-up. You will find full-time results on
the FA Cup on the BBC sport website. Rangers back to winning ways. Five
clear of Hibs. Hibs had an awin as did Falkirk. Bottom-of-the-table, no
change. Three points clear are Annan
Athletic. East Stirlingshire won, but they are bottom-of-the-table.
Bottom-of-the-table. Aston Villa yet to play this
weekend. Sunderland lost as did Bournemouth.
Hull stay top. They lead Brighton Hove Albion on goal difference. The
bottom three there, Charlton Athletic, Bolton Wanderers and
Rotherham We can go to our round-up of the
matches. We start at the Vitality Stadium, the home ground of
Bournemouth. They were playing Newcastle United. Daylight robbery
for Newcastle. A cherished first away win of the season. They took
the lead when Perez shot from the edge of the box. The keeper should
have done better. Elliott gave one of his finest performances in the
Newcastle goal. Denying King. Smith flicked the bar. The home side
dominant. When Elliott saved at the start of the second-half from
Gosling and a chance went over you sensed home belief was draining.
Newcastle's defiance was growing more. Bournemouth ran out of steam.
Cruel for the home side. What a win for Newcastle. Elliott was
outstanding. Leicester City's good run continued with a win over
Watford. Leicester City go joint top in the Premier League in November.
Would you believe it, it took them until the middle of April to get
this many points last season. It is thanks in large part to nine in a
row from Leicester's number nine, Jamie Vardy smashed home a penalty
to make it 12 in 12 matches. Mahrez gave him the ball. He is the regular
penalty taker. Vardy made no mistake. Gomez brought him down for
the penalty. He didn't have the best of the games. He let in from Kante.
Leicester's day. They beat Watford 2-1. Manchester United's day at Old
Trafford. They were winners over West Brom. Brom. Still not vintage
from Manchester United. Lingard, his second Premier League start, scored
his first goal for the club. Albion were more adventurous and should
have equalised. Berahino on as a sub missed a chance. Headed it over the
bar. United got a penalty, Mata put it away. United are just one-point
behind the leaders. Doesn't sound like vintage Manchester United,
Mark, but, but, at least they scored a couple of goals, the last two in
the league have been goalness? Not vintage for Manchester United fans
just now. I said a couple of weeks - I'm bored watching them now. I never
thought I would hear myself say about Manchester United. I used to
love watching them, 4-4-2, plenty of crosses and goals. It doesn't seem
to be the case these days at Old Trafford. Louis van Gaal says the
same about this show when he watches at home. Leicester City, Vardy
scored again today. A penalty, fair enough, what a record he has. What a
record Leicester have got Remarkable. It is funny how the team
gets into winning ways and Remarkable. It is funny how the team
momentum going. Having a consistent goalscorer. He has been prolific all
season. Mark said he was 28. He has had a career at the lower end of the
game hechl has this chance to play at the top-flight.
game hechl has this chance to play it. He is quick, direct, clinical in
the area. Leicester, at the moment, just can't be stopped. They lost a
game recently. They bounced back from
game recently. They bounced back qualifying for the Europa League,
staying up at the end of the table qualifying for the Europa League,
all season. Champions League? I suspect other also catch
all season. Champions League? I at some point. Norwich City hadn't
won in the League for two points. at some point. Norwich City hadn't
concerns for Garry Monk. For Norwich at some point. Norwich City hadn't
better chances. A couple of clear headers that
better chances. A couple of clear might have done. As the game wore
on, Swansea, with all the possession, no
on, Swansea, with all the thought it was nailed on for 0-0.
The substitute made a difference. thought it was nailed on for 0-0.
The header into Howson's path, he turned it home for his head off the
turn. Not a great game. Not a classic, too long bogged down. I
won't by the DVD. Norwich won't care about the quality. Three points for
them. 1-0. A much-needed win for them, Mark. Listen, they gave
Manchester City a run for their money last week? I have turned into
a Norwich fan. money last week? I have turned into
the team. It's to do with the manager. When they get a victory
like that, not a classic, valuable manager. When they get a victory
three points. We are supporters of Alec Neil. Sunderland were in need
of points. They were at home Southampton. Watched by Eilidh
Barbour. The final whistle goes. It is their first win here since 2003.
Six games they have gone previously without a win here. It took a
penalty to find a way through Sunderland's robust defence.
Deserved win for Southampton. Pantilimon couldn't be breached in
the first half. Pulling off two fabulous saves to deny Tadic and
Mane. Tadic took the opportunity to continue Southampton's unbeaten away
record this season. Finished here Sunderland 0, Southampton 1. Let us
find out what happened at Upton Park, West Ham United at home to
Everton. James Husband. West Ham breaking a run of defeats against
Everton. Two fine goals lit up the first. Lanzini curled West Ham into
the need. Lukaku made it level. Reid headed over for The Hammers. A draw
about right. Payet went off early in the second-half. A big game for Jose
Mourinho tonight against Stoke. He's banned from the touchline. Didn't
seem seem to do Inverness any harm? Do you think it might help Chelsea
the players under pressure that Jose is not on the sidelines Perhaps.
Maybe it will bring them together. I think the players are backing
Mourinho. Although it doesn't seem like that on the pitch with the
results. I think he is liked in the dressing room. Perhaps it gives them
siege mentality that they have lost their manager. They struggle when
they go to Stoke. They have won three times in the league so far
this season? Incredible. Same group of players. World-class players
playing so badly. You had can't put your finger on what has gone wrong
there. Jose Mourinho's under even more pressure than Ronny Deila. He
is under pressure after that Europa League defeat in midweek. However,
Celtic back in domestic football tomorrow. They are away to Ross
County. Let us recap on the league table in Europe after their sicked
defeat to Molde. That looks pretty grim, doesn't it? It does. Fantastic
for Molde. Who would have thought that? Celtic, looks terrible. Put a
positive spin on it. They are only three points - Celtic have to look
at it. It's in their own hands. You say, put a positive spin. They are
three points behind Fenerbahce. Nothing like their previous
experiences ins Europe, Celtic beating Ajax at home or Fenerbahce
away or at home? They are vulnerable at the back. Domestically they are
doing fine. They are top of the league. They are winning games. They
have conceded the lowest amount of goals in the Premiership. Doing fine
domestically. In Europe they are exposed at the back. Concede all the
time. Conceded two goals in all European games. You are giving
yourself a two goal deficit to overcome. Celtic didn't build a
period of possession on Tuesday night, passages of play, get a
foothold on the game before the defence is exposed and conceded
goals. If they don't tighten up they won't pick up points in the last two
games. I feel sorry for Ronny Deila to some extent, the players they
signed defensively were inspearsed. These guys have stepped up a level,
they are not ready for it yet. He has to manage that. He has to find a
way to make Celtic defensively stronger. He has not done that in
Europe yet. We were talking about it in the office, two Ronny's, domestic
football dominant, European football struggling. On day one they beat by
Ross County. They play them tomorrow. Everyone thought Celtic
would run away with it. Ross County played well. We got a glimpse of
what they were going to do this season, they carried it on. Celtic
will look at more of this tomorrow. They will look for Griffiths and
their top players to score. Tough place to go with the way Ross County
are playing. What reaction it do you expect on the back of the Europa
League defeat The managers didn't mince his words. He was blunt in his
assessment. The team lacking leadership and characters. He he was
critical of boyality ya, he made the caveat that he is inexperienced. I
think Celtic have responded to setbacks in Europe this season. That
is why they are top of the League, their doe Membersic form is good,
beat Hearts and Aberdeen. They are r have faced every challenge
domestically. The manager was critical. If he doesn't get a
response from the players that will tell a lot about the dynamic of the
dressing room. I think they will win the league comfortably. You couldn't
become more critical on Dundee United. What do you think of his
assessment of today's performance be losing 2-0. I'm worried for Dundee
United. We were watching the pictures of the game today. They
weren't any better. The trouble is, when a new manager comes in, you
often get a honeymoon period where the players kick on and they get a
few wins everything seems Rosie, then perhaps it dips. It's not
happening for Dundee United. They beat Ross County. They lost to Hibs.
They lost to Hibs. Some of the goals here against Hibs highlights Dundee
United's problems. Is this rubbish again? What way can you describe it.
They will think that's the best way of dealing with the situation. I
mean, these are young boys who have never really had criticism like
that. John lead with his elbow, which is
unfortunate. But the young boys have not really had criticism, it was not
Jackie's wave. Now a totally not really had criticism, it was not
different manager has come in and had a real pop at them. It's not
really worked in midweek, and it didn't work today. Richard, you were
tipping at the start of the season Hamilton to go down. Can you see
United staying in the bottom for the rest of the season? I can. The only
way that he manages to rest of the season? I can. The only
United out of this is organising the team so that they are conceding
fewer goals. That will take time and effort on the training ground, which
he is doing at the moment. We have already seen them and trying to sign
a goalkeeper, it will depend on his work permit, but he is an
experienced, international goalkeeper and that will help.
January will be key for Dundee United. Kilmarnock, Motherwell, they
are dropping points down the bottom of the table. I think Dundee United
will be there, I think there will be two or three teams around them. Of
those teams, the one with the best chance of doing something in January
is Dundee United, if they have chance of doing something in January
struggle all season. May be too late to say that the wheels are back on
the bandwagon for Aberdeen, but certainly for Hearts? Definitely,
the bandwagon for Aberdeen, but played very well again. Good goals.
They are having a terrific season. Nielsen will be looking to keep that
going, keep the same momentum. Once you lose a few games, you go back a
lot. If they can keep winning and keep in touch with Celtic, I am sure
there will be delighted. Are you looking at Hearts and Aberdeen for
second, or can use CED them going looking at Hearts and Aberdeen for
and challenging Celtic, St Johnstone coming into the mix? Celtic, now
they are top of the table, I can't see anybody catching on. I think it
will be close between see anybody catching on. I think it
Hearts. I can't see St Johnstone coming up.
So before I sound the final whistle, I'll remind you of some results.
Now, you'll see the best bits of the weekend's action
