ℹ️ Team News: Aberdeen
The Aberdeen boss Barry Robson will be happy not to have any fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game owing to a completely healthy squad available for selection.
In all likelihood, The Dons may well kick off with a 3-5-2 formation for this game, beginning the first half with Kelle Roos, Matthew Pollock, Angus MacDonald, Liam Scales, Ross McCrorie, Ylber Ramadani, Leighton Clarkson, Graeme Shinnie, Jonathan Hayes, Duk and Bojan Miovski.
📰 Team News: St Mirren
Due to a completely healthy squad to pick from, the St Mirren boss Stephen Robinson has zero fitness worries to speak of coming into this match.
We believe The Buddies appear most likely to play in a 5-3-2 system with a starting lineup of Trevor Carson, Marcus Fraser, Joe Shaughnessy, Richard Taylor, Ryan Strain, Thierry Small, Alexandros Gogic, Keanu Baccus, Mark O'Hara, Curtis Main and Greg Kiltie.
Our assessment is that Aberdeen will, in all likelihood, dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
At the same time, St Mirren won’t find it easy to make a breakthrough but we can see them converting at least once here.
We’re therefore expecting to see a fairly comfortable 3-1 victory for Aberdeen by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
