There are five more games in this final round of midweek Scottish Premiership fixtures in the 2023-24 season – including two games of huge significance.

Kilnarnock against Celtic and St Johnstone v Ross County have key implications at both ends of the table.

This is how your team’s squad – and that of your opposition – is shaping up for the penultimate game of the league season.

All games 19:45 BST kick-offs unless stated.

Aberdeen v Livingston

Aberdeen have reported no injuries before their final home game of a generally miserable season, but interim Peter Leven has urged the players who are out of contract this summer to go out on a high.

Livingston defender Cristian Montano came off with muscle tightness against St Johnstone at the weekend and will be assessed.

Goalkeeper Jack Hamilton (groin), James Penrice (hip) and Shaun Donnellan have all been missing recently.
