Thursday 27th April

 

FOOTBALL
Relegation-threatened Peterhead are aiming to spoil Livingston’s celebrations when the teams meet in West Lothian this weekend.  The Blue Toon have just two games left to avoid bottom spot in League 1.  Livi have already wrapped up the title and have won their last seven matches.  Balmoor manager Jim McInally hopes their opponents have one eye on their post-match party, similar to what his own team experienced when they won League 2 three years ago


Tottenham are back to within just four points of Premier League leaders Chelsea.  They kept up the pressure on their title rivals with a 1-0 win at Crystal Palace.  Arsenal beat Leicester by the same score to move four points off the Champions
League places.  That could change later, with a derby between Manchester City and Manchester United - City are fourth but United can replace them with victory. Middlesbrough won their first top-flight game of 2017 by seeing off Sunderland 1-0 last night.  Defeat leaves the division's bottom club 12 points from safety.

GOLF

Aberdeen golfer Richie Ramsay is off to a steady start at the Volvo China Open.  Ramsay is on one under par after his first round in Beijing.  The Frenchman Alexander Levy leads on nine under. 

The 9th hole at Cruden Bay Golf Club is one of the best in the country, that’s according to tourism body VisitScotland.  It claimed the award for best view following a poll of more than 3000 golfers around the UK.  The course, which has stirring views across the Bay of Cruden and Slains Castle, triumphed against stiff competition.  The overall best hole was awarded to the 18th at the Old Course in St Andrews. 

TENNIS

Andy Murray should finally take to the court at the Barcelona Open tennis later - after yesterday's opponent Bernard Tomic withdrew with injury. The world number one faces Feliciano Lopez in round three.  Dan Evans is up against Dominic Thiem.  British women's number one Johanna Konta plays Anastasija Sevastova in the last-16 at the Stuttgart Open.

Maria Sharapova's started her controversial return to tennis with a win. In her first match since serving a 15-month drugs ban, she got past Roberta Vinci in straight sets - 7-5 6-3 - at the Stuttgart Open.  The decision to give her a wild card entry into the tournament has been criticised. Sharapova tested positive for banned substance meldonium last year - a drug she said she took for health reasons.

SNOOKER

John Higgins continues his quest for a fifth World Snooker Championship title tonight.  The Wishaw-based player faces Barry Hawkins in the semi-final at the Crucible.  Their first of four sessions begins at 7pm.  Mark Selby is up against Ding Junhui in the other semi. 

BOXING

Ricky Burns says he's not going to give up on his boxing career - despite losing his world title unification fight in Glasgow last night. The Scot went down to a unanimous points decision to Namibian Julius Indongo - who now holds the WBA, IBF and IBO super-lightweight belts.

RUGBY

Stuart Hogg is one of just two Scotland players that have been named in the British and Irish Lions rugby union squad.  The full-back's joined by Glasgow team-mate Tommy Seymour.  It's Hogg's second tour after being part of victory in Australia four years ago.
