St Mirren vs Hibernian
Date: Saturday, 29th September 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: The Simple Digital Arena (Paisley).
St Mirren have a huge task this Saturday as they play high flying Hibernian in match day 7 of the Scottish Premiership. They are among the early strugglers this term as they are 2nd from the bottom of the table and are only better than Dundee who has no point.
Mirren will enter this game from 6 games winless streak in all competitions having lost 5 and drawn once. The most interesting thing is that they have only scored once in these game, showing they lack fire power.
The hosts lost 3-0 to Hamilton last week after managing to hold 10 man Celtic goalless in the previous week. They were only able to get 2 shots on target last week from 4 shots. If they can sort out their scoring issues, try chill be able to change their poor status.
Hibernian couldn’t make it past the quarter-finals in the midweek as they lost 6-5 on penalties against Aberdeen. Hibs were unlucky in the midweek as they out played Aberdeen, raking up 61% of total possession and 6 shots on target from 21 but couldn’t score any goal.
The Hibs are 3rd in the league table with 11 points, 5 points below early leaders Hearts and same points as Rangers in 2nd position. They now have to sorely concentrate on the Premiership and mount a serious title challenge this term.
