The Premiership clash at The SMISA Stadium on Sunday will see hosts St Mirren playing against Motherwell.
All St Mirren v Motherwell game predictions, stats and user poll are shown below - along with the latest match odds.
St Mirren will be looking for another win after a 3-1 League Cup triumph over Edinburgh City.
For St Mirren, the goalscorers were Mark O'Hara (8') and Jonah Ayunga (25', 46'). Danny Handling (53') was the scorer for Edinburgh City.
Their most recent results shine a light on the fact that there has been much resilience in the St Mirren rearguard. St Mirren have given the opposition little, resulting in the total number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper during their previous six clashes standing at 4. Such a trend isn’t assured to follow through into this next game, though.
Following on from being defeated in their last game at the hands of Sligo Rovers in Conference League Qualifiers competition, Motherwell and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
Shane Blaney (4') and Max Mata (90') scored for Sligo Rovers.
The numbers tell their own story, and Motherwell have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, conceding 11 goals in total. Defensively, Motherwell have seen their frailties exposed.
Head to head
Looking over their past head to head meetings going back to 09/01/2021 shows that St Mirren have won 0 of them and Motherwell 2, with the tally of drawn results being 4.
15 goals were produced between them during those clashes, with 6 for The Buddies and 9 being from The Steelmen. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.5.
Team News: St Mirren
The St Mirren manager Stephen Robinson has zero fitness worries whatsoever before this game with a completely healthy group available for selection.
In all likelihood, The Buddies may well line up in a 3-5-2 formation this time, handing starts to Trevor Carson, Declan Gallagher, Joe Shaughnessy, Charles Dunne, Ryan Strain, Keanu Baccus, Ethan Erhahon, Mark O'Hara, Scott Tanser, Jonah Ayunga and Alex Greive.
Team News: Motherwell
We’re of the thinking that The Steelmen will likely elect for a 3-5-2 lineup by sending out Liam Kelly, S. Solholm Johansen, Ricki Lamie, Jake Carroll, Paul McGinn, Josh Morris, Barry Maguire, Sean Goss, Blair Spittal, Connor Shields and Kevin Van Veen.
Looking at these two, we feel that Motherwell and St Mirren should both be able to find the back of the net here although it’s difficult to select a clear winner.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. Our tip is therefore for a tight encounter, finishing with a 1-1 scoreline at the end of the 90.
