So Near.....

C:WindowsTempphp40C4.tmpSt Mirren are on the cusp of booking their place in the 2018-19 Scottish Premiership and could lift the Scottish Championship title on Saturday if results go their way.  Jack Ross's side will seal a return to the top flight if they beat relegated Brechin City at Glebe Park and Livingston fail to collect maximum points at home to Morton.

The Paisley club have been here before and lifted the Championship trophy in 1999-00 when Tom Hendrie was manager and again in 2005-06 under Gus MacPherson. The Buddies are seeking a hat-trick of titles since the four-division system was introduced in the mid-1990s.  If the Buddies are prevented from celebrating  on Saturday, their next opportunity will be against Dundee United at Tannadice on Tuesday evening.

Championship winners since the four-division structure was introduced:
1994/95 - Raith Rovers
1995/96 - Dunfermline
1996/97 - St Johnstone
1997/98 - Dundee
