David Wotherspoon fires in Hibernian's winner

David Wotherspoon clinched both a 1-0 win over Dundee and seventh place in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League for Hibernian to ensure they go into the William Hill Scottish Cup final on the back of three consecutive victories.

The substitute guided home a powerful header in the 79th minute to complete a decent day's work for Hibs, who avoided any obvious injuries eight days before their Hampden encounter with Celtic.

Late goals from Paul McGowan and Conor Newton secured St Mirren just their third away win of the season as they rounded off their campaign with a 3-1 win over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.

In the Buddies' three previous attempts to overturn Kilmarnock this term, the best they had managed was two draws, but they finally overcame Kenny Shiels' side with McGowan's spot-kick success 15 minutes from time ahead of a late Newton effort.

John McGinn had put Danny Lennon's side ahead with his first senior goal after 20 minutes but Kris Boyd levelled soon after for the hosts.

Killie's unbeaten record against the men from Paisley was ruined, however, with McGowan and Newton's late intervention.

Elsewhere, Aberdeen and Hearts defied the weather to serve up an entertaining match despite ending their seasons with a 1-1 draw.

The home side had the better of the game but fell behind to Ryan Stevenson's header, before Jamie Hamill's own-goal ensured a share of the points.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
