Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Aberdeen will be aiming to cement third place in the standings when they take on St. Mirren in the Premiership round 37. The Dons are on a three-game winless run in the Scottish top flight, but they are still seen as favourites to win the midweek clash. Graeme Shinnie is back from suspension, while both Ross McCrorie and Callum Roberts are out of contention with injuries.
The Saints, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom of the table with little to play for in the season finale. Considering that Aberdeen are eager to represent Scotland in European competitions next term, home win should be considered. All Alex Greive, Ryan Flynn, Tony Watt, and Richard Tait are out of contention with injuries, speaking of the away team. In their last meeting in the Premiership St Mirren defeated Aberdeen 3-1, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Player (Marcus Fraser):
Marcus Fraser is a Scottish footballer who plays for Ross County as a defender. Fraser is a product of Celtic football school, but he made no more than one appearance for the Hoops in the Scottish Premier League. He played his only game for the Scottish giants in a 3-1 win at Inverness on February 9, 2013.
After ending his loan spell with Cowdenbeath, Marcus Fraser signed a deal with Ross County in 2015. Over the years, the defender has established himself as a first-team regular with the Staggies, making 26 appearances in the Scottish top flight last term.
Speaking of his international career, Fraser has five caps for the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. His main position on the field is a right-back, but he is capable of producing good performances as a centre-back as well. Marcus Fraser was born in Bishopbriggs, Scotland, on June 23, 1994.
