Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
St. Mirren and Dundee United go head to head at the SMISA Stadium in what is expected to be an interesting Premiership game. The Saints have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Livingston 2-1, losing to Rangers (0-4), while sharing the spoils with Kilmarnock (0-0). St. Mirren, though, have been impressive in front of home fans this term (4-1-1), and it is no wonder the bookies see them as favourites to beat the Terrors. Forward Toyosi Olusanya remains on the sidelines with a broken toe.
Dundee United, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team collecting seven points in total from the previous three league fixtures. The Terrors are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling St. Mirren’s party at the SMISA Stadium. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team.
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.

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.
