Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
In Saturday’s football game at Fir Park pits together Motherwell and St Mirren, the two top-table sides. The Well are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side. Important defender Paul McGinn serves a one-game ban, while all Conor Wilkinson, Pape Souare, Mika Biereth, Jonathan Obika, and Calum Butcher are out of contention with injuries.
The Saints, meanwhile, aim to remain undefeated in the 2023/2024 Premiership campaign and given the number of absentees in the home team, we predict that they are going to grab something from the match. St Mirren boss Stephen Robinson has a luxury to field the best possible side against Motherwell. In their last encounter in the Scottish top flight Motherwell defeated St Mirren 2-1, but we are tempted to put our money on draw this time out as the two sides seem to be evenly matched.
Highlighted Team (St Mirren):
St Mirren are Scottish football club that compete in the Scotland Premier League. Founded in 1877, the Buddies play home games at St Mirren Park. The venue, which was built in 2009, can hold up to 8,000 spectators.
St Mirren are well known for their white and black home kit, while black and violet are the dominant colours of their away kit. The Scottish club played their first match against Johnstone Britannia on October 6, 1877, winning the game by one goal to nil. St Mirren have a bitter rivalry with Greenock Morton, and there have always been fireworks in clashes between the two clubs.
The Buddies recorded their biggest win on January 30, 1960, with the team crushing Glasgow University 15-0 in the Scottish Cup. David McCrae is leading the club’s all-time goal-scoring chart with 221 league goals. St Mirren have won the Scotland Premiership three times (1925/26, 1958/59, 1986/87).
