Up next: St Johnstone v St Mirren (29th Aug 2020)

It's the 'battle of the Saints' on Saturday as St Mirren head to Perth to face St Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership.

St Mirren have taken seven points from their opening four matches - the best start to a top flight campaign since 2006. 

Jim Goodwin's side have beaten both Livingston and Hamilton (1-0), while drew 1-1 with Ross County last weekend. 

Meanwhile, St Johnstone have picked up four points from their opening five matches. Callum Davidson's men opened the season with a 1-1 draw away to Dundee United and grabbed three points away to Kilmarnock match day three when Michael O'Halloran's late goal gave the Perth side a 2-1 win. 

St Johnstone come into the match having been edged out 1-0 in their previous two matches at home to Aberdeen and Hibernian.

Manager's thoughts

"I've watched St Johnstone live twice and I've been really impressed with them.

"Myself and the analyst watched the rest of their matches on Wyscout but in terms of the two games I saw live on Sky - the Aberdeen and Hibs games - I thought they were really unfortunate to lose both games. 

"Callum Davidson has them well organised, they have plenty of energy and they are a decent team.

"We've no new injuries, but Ilkay Durmus will come back into the squad after missing last week."

Who are the officials?

Kevin Clancy is referee for Saturday's match with Alan Mulvanny and Craig Ferguson as the linesmen. Kevin Graham is the fourth official.
