All Dundee United v St Mirren game predictions, stats and user poll are shown below - as well as up-to-date odds.
Dundee United will be wanting a better result here following a 1-3 Premiership losing effort in their last game against Hibernian.
In that match, Dundee United managed 35% possession and 8 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. The only player to score for Dundee United was Declan Glass (90'). At the other end, Hibernian got 18 shots at goal with 5 on target. Kevin Nisbet (38'), Chris Cadden (78') and Jamie Murphy (93') scored for Hibernian.
Dundee United haven’t exactly had impressive attacking statistics of late. Their goals record stands at just 2 vs opponents during the course of their last 6 fixtures. In those meetings, Dundee United have also seen the number of goals against them come to 10.
Looking at their past form shows that Dundee United:
- have not been beaten in the league by St Mirren in their previous 2 matches.
- haven't won against St Mirren in their last 4 league games.
- are without a win at home for the past 3 league games.
After tasting defeat last time out to Rangers in Premiership action, St Mirren and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that game, St Mirren had 23% possession and 1 shots at goal with 0 on target. Rangers had 25 attempts on goal with 7 on target. Scott Wright (14') and Alfredo Morelos (26') scored for Rangers.
The strike force from St Mirren have failed to get amongst the goals over their last six clashes, netting the unsatisfactory return of just 2. In those fixtures, The Buddies have also seen the overall goal aggregate against them equal 9. That pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward here, though.
Heading into this contest, St Mirren are without an away win for the past 5 league games.
