St Mirren, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 0-2 Scottish Cup triumph against Ayr United.
For St Mirren, goals were scored by Kyle McAllister (7') and Greg Kiltie (24').
Jim Goodwin's St Mirren have celebrated scoring 6 times over their last half-dozen outings. The tally of goals that have been scored against them in those same fixtures stands at 8.
Their past results show that St Mirren:
- are undefeated in their last 4 league matches at home.
- haven’t won at home in the past 6 league matches. Fans are getting restless.
Aberdeen come into this meeting following on from a 3-0 Scottish Cup win with the defeat of Edinburgh City in their previous game.
For Aberdeen, goals were scored by Ryan Hedges (23'), Christian Ramírez (44') and Lewis Ferguson (90').
A run of steadfast showings by the Aberdeen defensive players has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 4 from their previous 6 outings combined. Over that same period of time, their forwards have scored 11. We will just have to see if that trend will be continued on in this game.
Coming into this contest, Aberdeen have not emerged victorious against St Mirren in games played away from home for the previous 4 league matches. Not good at all.

Team News: St Mirren
The St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all coming into this game with a fully healthy squad to choose from.
Team News: Aberdeen
Thanks to a largely full-strength group, there is just the lone fitness issue for the Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass to contend with. Michael Devlin (Ankle Surgery) won’t be playing here.
It seems to us that Aberdeen and St Mirren could well both score and end up finding themselves in a fairly even game here.
Let’s see what happens, but it could well be that we end up with scores level. We’re therefore tipping a very even match with a 1-1 score at the end of the 90.
