The top and bottom half placings were confirmed on Wednesday morning following the conclusion of Tuesday night’s fixtures.

Falkirk Partick Thistle and Cove Rangers were already guaranteed a top half place before the matches and a 1-0 win for Montrose at home to Cove combined with Airdrie beating East Fife meant the Gable Endies and the Diamond secured the two remaining places while the Fifers missed out.

Only six points separate Partick in first place and Montrose in fifth going in to the remaining matches.
