St Mirren’s Season So Far

St Mirren’s season started in the Betfred Cup away to fellow Premiership side Kilmarnock and after the 0-0 draw at Rugby Park, they won the bonus point by winning the shoot out 3-0.

The Saints had to rely on penalties again in their next match at home to Lowland League side Spartans and won the bonus point after a surprising 2-2 draw.

For the third match in a row The Buddies relied on penalties for a bonus point after a 0-0 draw with Queens Park at Hampden Park.

Saints finally won a game in their last group match with a convincing 6-0 victory at home to Dumbarton which was enough to send them through to the knock out stages as one of the best placed runners-up behind Kilmarnock.

St Mirren started their Premiership campaign with a 2-1 home win over Dundee but after losing their next four games against Rangers, Aberdeen (in the Betfred Cup), Livingston and Hearts, dispensed with the services of manager Alan Stubbs during the international break.

He was replaced by Coleraine manager Oran Kearney and in his first game in charge got a point after a 0-0 draw at home with Celtic.

Since then however, Saints have lost their next six games to Hamilton, Hibs, Aberdeen, St Johnstone, Motherwell and Rangers and come to Dens Park just a point ahead of The Dee in the table.
