St Mirren vs Hibernian
Date: Sunday, 27th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: The Simple Digital Arena (Paisley).
With just over half of the season completed, the Saints are in deep trouble. They are at the bottom of the table with just 3 wins in 22 matches till now. Scoring has been below par and the defense has conceded 43 goals in that spell too.
They come into this game against the Hibs on the back of a 3 match losing streak in the Premiership. From the last 5 games in all competitions, they have only 2 wins and the remaining were defeats. All the recent 3 matches they played had over 2.5 goals at the full time.
After losing 3 home games, they finally came back to winning ways with the win over Alloa in the FA Cup. But that win against a poor lower division side will not give them much joy as matches against better opposition are yet to come.
Neil Lennon’s side has been indifferent with their league performance this season. They won and lost 7 games each and have lost valuable points by drawing the remaining 8 games. Hibees are the better scoring team in the mid-table with 30 goals in 22 matches.
They are low on morale after being winless in 4 of their previous 5 matches on the road. The only win in that spell came against Hamilton which ended 0-1. Apart from that game, they concede goals in all the remaining 4 matches in that run.
St Mirren vs Hibernian: Head-to-head (h2h)

St Mirren vs Hibernian: Prediction
