Up next: St Mirren v Motherwell (17th Oct)

St Mirren return to Scottish Premiership action this weekend as Jim Goodwin's men host Motherwell on Saturday.

The Buddies picked up five points from our opening two Betfred Cup matches - defeating Partick Thistle 4-1 at St Mirren Park, before coming from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Queen of the South at Palmerston and taking a bonus point on penalties. 

Motherwell haven't been in action since a 5-1 defeat at home against Rangers at the end of September.

Stephen Robinson's side, who aren't involved in the Betfred Cup group stages due to their qualification for Europe, were due to play Kilmarnock at the start of the month, but that match was postponed by the SPFL after the Kilmarnock squad had to self-isolate.

Previous

Saints faced the Steelmen five times last season - winning twice, drawing once and losing twice. 

The last meeting saw Ilkay Durmus score a late winner at Fir Park as St Mirren won 2-1 at Fir Park in February. 

The two sides couldn't be separated when Motherwell last visited Paisley, also in February, in Scottish Cup action. Mark O'Hara scored the opener for the Steelmen before Alex Jakubiak levelled in the second-half. 

Manager's thoughts

"We have to try and approach the game the same way we did the Aberdeen game, obviously with a different outcome.

"If we can take seven points or nine points from the next three games that could really catapult us up the table."

Who are the officials?

Bobby Madden is the referee on Saturday. He is assisted by Calum Spence and Gary Hilland. David Lowe is the fourth official.
