Scottish Championship Roundup

Nine games into the season and Ross County are top of the table after hitting their third win in succession. Lawrence Shankland bagged yet another goal in for Ayr in the process against the Staggies-his 10th league goal of the season.

Arabs fans may have reason to smile after a spirited performance under new manager Robbie Neilson against Inverness at Tannadice. It might’ve only been a score draw, but signs of improvement were evident.

Gary Caldwell is still waiting for a taste of victory as the new Partick Thistle manager, with his side falling short to a 1-0 defeat away to Alloa, handing their opponents their first three points of the season. Will Caldwell turn fortunes around for the recently relegated Firhill outfit?

Stalwart Bob McHugh snatched a victory late on for Morton to dump ten-man Falkirk into more trouble at the foot of the Championship table. Bairns boss Ray McKinnon shifted the blame onto referee John Beaton (more officiating controversy in Scottish Football, imagine that) but at the end of the day performances and fortunes will need to Improve if Falkirk want to stand any chance of surviving in this highly competitive league.

Finally, last seasons high flyers Dunfermline lost out to Queen of the South who scored a 83rd minute winner through Josh Todd. The result was something of a smash and grab in terms of balance of play: 57% possession and 10 shots on goal for Dunfermline whilst Queens only shot on goal decided the game.

Alloa Athletic 1 - 0 Partick Thistle
