Team News: St Mirren
The St Mirren boss Stephen Robinson has a full complement, with no fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this clash thanks to a completely injury-free squad to choose from.
Team News: Motherwell
Owing to an otherwise available group, there’s just the sole fitness worry for the Motherwell gaffer Steven Hammell to be concerned with. Jake Carroll (Knee Surgery) misses out for this game.
In our view, Motherwell and St Mirren should both be able to score here although it’s hard to pick a clear winner.
There should be little in it, and a draw looks to be quite a realistic result. Therefore, we predict a hard-fought 1-1 draw after 90 minutes.
