Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Hibernian play host to St Mirren in a highly-anticipated Scottish Premiership clash, promising an intense battle at Easter Road. The home side have bolstered their ranks with impressive new signings, including Jordan Obita, Adam Le Fondre, Dylan Levitt, Elie Youan, and Dylan Vente, adding depth and quality to their squad. While St Mirren have been showcasing fine displays in the League Cup, they face a formidable task in facing Hibernian on the road.
Over the years Hibernian have established themselves as a real force to be reckoned with at Easter Road, making it a fortress for any visiting team. With important midfielder Jonah Ayunga sidelined with injury, St Mirren's challenge becomes even tougher. As the match unfolds, the odds appear to favor a dominant performance from Hibernian, culminating in a predicted home win. In their last meeting at the venue Hibernian defeated St Mirren 2-1.
