Last Meeting

Dundee fans travelled to Paisley in large numbers last month, full of hope and expectation but it turned into a desperately disappointed day for The Dee. After taking the lead in the opening minute, the Dark Blues were pegged back just eleven minutes later before the Saints scored a crucial winner in the second half.

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.

After that however, Saints lost their next six games to Hamilton, Hibs, Aberdeen, St Johnstone, Motherwell and Rangers but stopped the rot with a 1-1 draw at Dens in November.

They followed that 1-1 draw with a 2-0 home win over Hearts at the end of the month and in December picked up three more with a draw at Easter Road and a 1-0 win at Fir Park.

Oran Kearney overhauled his squad during the transfer window but they returned from the winter break with 4-0 defeats away at both Celtic and Rangers and a 3-1 defeat at home to Hibs.

In the Scottish Cup Saints came back from 2-0 down to knock Alloa out 3-2 in Paisley but in the next round crashed out 2-1 to Championship side Dundee United.

They bounced back however with excellent draws away at Hearts and Aberdeen before a last minute Ryan Flynn goal gave them a 1-0 win over Livingston to haul themselves within touching distance of the sides immediately above and got off the bottom with a 2-1 win over Dundee.

Since the split St Mirren have kept up their momentum with wins against Livingston and Hamilton and draws with Motherwell and St Johnstone and the 2-0 win over Accies last Monday took them win a point of the Lanarkshire side in an effort to avoid the Premiership play off.
