Heart of Midlothian face a nervous 90 minutes against Motherwell this Saturday trying to avoid being involved in Scotland's first relegation play-off.

After losing 3-1 at Hibernian on Saturday, Hearts now need to beat a visiting Motherwell side seeking a Uefa Cup place to be sure of avoiding the home and away play-off with the First Division runners-up. If Aberdeen win at Falkirk and Hearts only draw, the Dons will complete their escape on goal difference.

The First Division side who will feature in the play-off will be decided on the last day of the season - as will the title race. Raith Rovers need a point from Saturday's visit to Hamilton Academical to win automatic promotion. Dunfermline Athletic and Dundee are locked on 65 points, three behind Raith.

Greenock Morton should leave the Second Division as champions, while Montrose join Forfar Athletic in stepping up from the Third.
