Our Hibernian v St Mirren tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below (inc. the best betting odds).
Hibernian go into this game after a 0-0 Premiership tied result versus Hearts.
In that game, Hibernian managed 43% possession and 14 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. For their opponents, Hearts had 16 shots at goal with 4 on target.
Jack Ross's Hibernian have seen rewards for their attempts on goal 10 times over their last 6 outings. The comparative number of goals that have been scored against them in that same time is 6.
Analysis of their past results shows that Hibernian:
- are unbeaten in the league by St Mirren in their previous 10 games. A long run without a loss.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 3 league matches at home.
In their last game, St Mirren drew 0-0 in the Premiership match with Dundee United.
In that match, St Mirren managed 56% possession and 15 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target. Dundee United got 9 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target.
The attacking players from St Mirren have had real problems scoring goals in their past 6 clashes, contributing the poor return of just 4. In those matches, The Buddies have also seen the overall goal tally against them equal 11. It will be interesting to see if that trend will end up being continued on in this game.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that St Mirren:
- have not won against Hibernian in games played away from home for the previous 8 league games. A very poor set of away results, indeed.
- are without a win away from home in their last 3 league matches.
Head to head
A review of their past head to head results going back to 03/08/2019 reveals that these encounters have not been fruitful for St Mirren. They have not been able to register any victories at all whereas Hibernian have simply been better than them, beating them in 83 per cent of those matches.
15 goals were scored between them throughout the course of those matches, with 11 of them for The Hibees and 4 created by The Buddies. That is an average goals per game value of 2.5.
Team News: Hibernian
There is just the lone fitness concern for the Hibernian boss Jack Ross to contend with from an otherwise complete set of players. Christian Doidge (Achilles tendon problems) won’t play.
Team News: St Mirren
Thanks to a completely injury-free squad to choose from, the St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin has no fitness worries to speak of coming into this game.
We’re of the view that Hibernian will probably convert a lot of goal-scoring opportunities.
At the other end, St Mirren could well find it tough to break down their defence but we can see them being dangerous at times, too.
We can therefore see a 3-1 winning margin for Hibernian when the full-time whistle blows.
