Ed Miliband has urged voters not to "gamble" by voting for the SNP, and instead vote for Labour - claiming he alone could "guarantee change".
His comments, made during a rally in Glasgow alongside Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy, came as he comes under increasing pressure over the possibility of a post-election deal with Nicola Sturgeon.
Mr Murphy followed by warning that every SNP MP would work "every day" towards a second independence referendum.
