Sports Mole rounds up Saturday's SPL matches, including wins for Inverness and Ross County.

The race for European places remains tight in the Scottish Premier League after four matches this afternoon.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle moved up to second in the table after an away win at struggling Hearts. The home side twice equalised in the second half, but Gary Warren's second of the afternoon gave Inverness all three points.

They move one point ahead of Motherwell, who were beaten 3-0 by Ross County thanks to goals from Ivan Sproule, Richard Brittain and Iain Vigurs.

County are now just two points behind St Johnsone, who also won today, beating St Mirren 1-0 at home. Both clubs move into the top five and ahead of Kilmarnock, who could only manage a 1-1 draw at home to Aberdeen.

Celtic play tomorrow and will have the chance to extend their lead at the top to 21 points.

Results in full: Hearts 2-3 Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Kilmarnock 1-1 Aberdeen, Ross County 3-0 Motherwell, St Johnstone 1-0 St Mirren
