Up next: St Mirren v Morton (11th Nov)

St Mirren host Morton in the first Renfrewshire derby since 2018 as the Greenock side visit Paisley this evening. 

Saints have five points in Group G of the Betfred Cup after a win over Partick Thistle and a draw away to Queen of the South in our opening two matches. A win tonight would put Jim Goodwin's men in a commanding position with one game remaining. 

The Buddies come into tonight's match on the back of a 0-0 draw with Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership on Friday night.

Morton, meanwhile, are a point behind Saints having picked up four points from their opening two matches. Morton drew 2-2 with Queen of the South at Cappielow but missed out on the bonus point before defeating Queen's Park 1-0. 

David Hopkin's side meet Saints tonight on the back of a 5-0 defeat away to Raith Rovers on Saturday.

Manager's Thoughts

"We want to go and win our Betfred Cup group anyway but the fact it’s against Morton adds to the occasion. I certainly don’t want to be the manager that loses against Morton and I know the players don’t want to be the group that loses to Morton.

"It’s a game we need to win regardless. The fans demand it and we certainly demand it of each other. 

"I said to the players it would be great to give the fans something to cheer about. There's nothing better than beating your local rivals and getting the bragging rights."

Previous
