St Mirren Prediction

St Mirren still remain bottom of the Scottish Premiership despite cobbling together a three match unbeaten run which has seen the hosts take points off Aberdeen and Hearts in 2-2 and 1-1 draws respectively, along with Saturday’s much needed 1-0 home win over Livingston.

Saturday’s win against Livingston ended a run of eight league matches without a win for The Saints who had lost six of these eight matches, but their recent improvement in results will give the hosts a boost ahead of the visit of high-flying Kilmarnock on Monday night.

However, before we get too carried away, St Mirren had previously lost five home matches on the trot prior to the Livingston win, with defeats to Hamilton Academicals, Aberdeen, St Johnstone, Hibernian and Motherwell, amidst an overall home record of 3-1-10 10/21.

Of St Mirren’s three home wins so far this season, only one of them have been against top six opposition which was against Hearts who have lost six away matches so far this season, the joint most (with Hibernian) out of any team sitting in the Championship Round positions.

 

Key-Facts – St Mirren v Kilmarnock

  • St Mirren have beaten a top 6 team at home just once this season
  • St Mirren have kept just 3 clean sheets at home this season
  • Kilmarnock have won the last 2 encounters against St Mirren

 

Kilmarnock Prediction

Kilmarnock sit in the relatively lofty position of 4th place in the Scottish Premiership and trail Aberdeen by four points but the visitors could reduce the deficit to just a single point with a win against St Mirren on Monday night.

Kilmarnock were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw at home at their Rugby Park ground by Motherwell last time out in the Premiership, which extended Kilmarnock’s run without a win in the top flight to six matches, so the visitors will be itching to return to winning ways against St Mirren.

Recent results away from home have seen Kilmarnock chalk up just one away win from their last seven matches on the road amidst a record of 5-6-3 15/15 with their one success during this period being a 1-0 win at Motherwell.

However, it’s not all doom and gloom as Kilmarnock have beaten St Mirren in their last two encounters against The Saints, winning 2-1 at home and away, and they’ll fancy their chances of making it three wins on the trot on Monday night.

Betting Tips Verdict

St Mirren’s recent unbeaten run will be tested against Kilmarnock as the visitors have held the upper hand in the last two meetings.
