WITHOUT spending a penny Motherwell fared best of the Premiership clubs in the transfer window.

The sale of Ben Heneghan to Sheffield United and the move of ex-player Marvin Johnson from Oxford to Middlesbrough boosted club coffers by £1million.

Even better for boss Stevie Robinson was the fact star striker Louis Moult didn't move and all's well for the visit of Kilmarnock today.

It's been a great spell off the pitch and now it's time to do the business on it.

Motherwell have won three of their last four and face a Killie side whose only point came last time round at home to Hamilton after leading 2-0.

Killie have won two of 10 visits to Fir Park and Well look worth backing at 23-20 with Betfred. Moult is 11-8 at Coral to add to his goals tally.

Game of the day could be at Murrayfield where Craig Levein returns to the dugout for the visit of Aberdeen.

Who knows what Levein's return will bring but the Jambos are disadvantaged by playing in a half-full rugby stadium.

Aberdeen have a 100 per cent league record and won twice at Tynecastle last season. Back the Dons at 11-10 with bet365 and consider them to win by one which has been the outcome of three of their four games. That pays 11-8 at Betway.

Another interesting game is St Johnstone v Hibs and while I'm tempted by the Perth men at 9-5 with Paddy Power goals could be the way to go.

Hibs have taken just one point from two games after a lightning start but all four of their matches on the return to the top flight have seen both score.

They're better going forward than in defence to back both to score at 10-13 with 188Bet or over 2.5 match goals at evens with BetBright.

Rangers got back on track at Ross County last week and should win at home for the first time in three outings.

Dundee picked up their first point last time out at home to Hibs but it's difficult to see them getting anything from Ibrox.

Rangers though are a bit short at 3-10 with McBookie so consider Gers and over 2.5 match goals at a better price of 17-20 with Coral.

Alfredo Morelos has proved the best of Pedro Caixinha's summer signings with five goals and is 16-5 with McBookie.

After a sticky start St Mirren are on a roll with four wins on the spin. They are back to second favourites to win the the title behind Dundee United and can prove their credentials today.

Saints trounced United 3-0 last time out and should pick up the points when Inverness visit Paisley. ICT won 4-0 at Brechin but that was against the drop favourites but they were soundly spanked 5-1 at Dunfermline on their previous road trip. The Buddies are a best 27-20 at Coral and that's worth a risk.

Dunfermline are going better than anyone after five wins in a row and are a tempting 15-8 at McBookie at a Morton side who lost their last two in the Championship to Livingston and Inverness.

League One game of the day sees leaders Raith tackle second-placed Ayr. Rovers are 20-21 favourites with McBookie against a side that's slipped up in its last two but again goals could be the way to go.

Between them they've netted 25 goals in the league so both to score and over 2.5 goals at 19-20 with Coral.

In League Two Stirling look overpriced at evens with Betfred against a Clyde side who have lost three in row.

Top match is Peterhead v Montrose and again I like both to score at 4-5 with bet365 as both sides are in form and scoring.

Meanwhile, McBookie are offering 25-1 that i- form Raith Rovers striker Lewis Vaughan will break the club's scoring record by netting in 14 games in a row. The current record is Joe Cowan from the 1931-32 season, with 13 in a row. Vaughan currently sits on nine.

The striker is now the 6-4 favourite to end the season as top scorer. However, it is still a massive 1000-1 for him to break the Scottish league scoring record of 16 a row in set by Evelyn Morrison of Falkirk back in the 1928-29 season.
