Celtic kept their Bank of Scotland Premier League title charge on course with a narrow 1-0 win over Dundee United at Parkhead.

The league leaders took all three points when Chris Sutton grabbed the only goal of the game in the 18th minute after being set up for the header by Alan Thompson. Celtic had plenty of chances to add to their lead but stubborn defending from United meant they had to settle for the solitary goal. The win extended their lead at the top to four points from Rangers who are in action on Sunday.

An injury-time goal by Derek Riordan gave fourth-placed Hibernian a deserved 2-1 win over Dunfermline at Easter Road. The Edinburgh side, who dominated the match, took the lead with a wonderful Stephen Glass free-kick in the 65th minute only to see their advantage wiped out within two minutes by Andy Tod's close-range header. The game looked to be heading for a draw until Riordan, with almost the last kick of the match, slammed the ball into the net from 14 yards to give the Edinburgh men a dramatic victory.

Motherwell's bid for a seventh straight victory was ruined by Inverness who triumphed 2-1 at Fir Park. Richie Hart struck on 17 minutes and Graham Bayne added Caley Thistle's second on 42 as the visitors secured three priceless points. David Clarkson gave Motherwell hope with a 65th-minute tap-in but was sent off on 81 after receiving two cards in a minute.

Neil Barrett's second-half goal gave Dundee a well-deserved 1-0 victory over Aberdeen which lifted them off the foot of the Bank of Scotland Premier League. The midfielder struck in the 57th minute after some excellent holding play from Fabian Caballero carved out the chance. Aberdeen lost Fernando Pasquinelli and Alexander Diamond to injury and had Steven Craig red-carded for aiming a kick at Barrett.
