The rather artificial construct that sees the league fracture into a top and bottom six clubs just a few weeks from the finish line runs the risk of creating something of an anti-climatic SPL conclusion.

We're left searching for alternative distractions. This season an intriguing battle for Europe and a prolonged relegation struggle should be enough to keep interest alive.
At the bottom we wonder just how good a season could this yet be for Hibs?
Remarkably it could be one of their best since their league-winning glory days in the 1950s.
Remarkable because for the largest chunk of this season Hibs have been a weak impersonation of a top flight football club.
I'll be back on Albion Road in May with a round-up of the SPL season. And I might even take a look back at the Scottish Cup final.
