Our tips, poll and stats for St Mirren v Dundee can all be found here (inc. the best betting odds).
St Mirren, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 0-1 Premiership victory over St Johnstone.
In that game, St Mirren had 42% possession and 11 attempts at goal with 3 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for St Mirren was Greg Kiltie (53'). At the other end, St Johnstone got 5 attempts at goal with 0 of them on target.
It’s not been often in recent times that St Mirren have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that St Mirren have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 15 goals during that time.
Coming into this fixture, St Mirren are without a home win in the past 4 league games. Their fans aren't happy.
After being beaten in their last game against Aberdeen in Premiership action, Dundee and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.

The stats tell the story, and Dundee have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 11 goals in all. Defensively, Dundee certainly have room for improvement. That pattern might not be continued here, however.
Coming into this fixture, Dundee are without a win away from home in their last 4 league games.

In an otherwise available group, there is just the sole fitness issue for the Dundee gaffer Mark McGhee to contend with. Cillian Sheridan (Achilles tendon rupture) won’t be in action.
We feel that in this game, Dundee will manage to put one past this St Mirren team, although it might not prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
