Saints are looking to bounce back after last weeks narrow late 1-0 defeat at the hands of Hibernian, whilst our visitors are coming off 1-1 draw against Ross County and are currently sitting 2 spaces above Saints in the table.
Both teams will be missing star men with Saints missing Liam Craig but also St Mirren missing former Saints Player Joe Shaughnessy after he received a straight red in St. Mirren’s last game.
Manager Callum Davidson is set to have a fully fit outfield squad ahead of Todays’s fixture after having several key players out injured during the start of the season.
