Up next: St Mirren v Hamilton Academical (1st May)

St Mirren's focus turns back to Scottish Premiership duty following Monday's dramatic Scottish Cup win over Kilmarnock.

The Buddies host Hamilton Academical at the SMiSA Stadium this weekend with Jim Goodwin's men hoping to maintain their advantage in seventh spot in the Premiership. Saints moved back up to seventh after a 3-1 win away to Ross County in our last Premiership outing. 

Meanwhile, Hamilton come to Paisley sitting at the bottom of the table with just three matches remaining. Brian Rice's side are three points off 11th place Ross County and five off Kilmarnock who sit in 10th. 

Accies are winless in their last eight Premiership matches stretching back to a 4-1 win against Motherwell in mid-February.

Previous

This will be the fifth and final meeting between the two sides this season.

In the four matches so far Saints remain unbeaten having won two and drawn two against the Lanarkshire side. 

Both wins came at the FOYS Stadium with a 1-0 win in the league back in August, before a 3-0 Scottish Cup victory at the beginning of April.

Accies picked up a point on their last visit to Paisley with Bruce Anderson's deflected strike enough to earn Brian Rice's side a 1-1 draw in February after Ilkay Durmus had put St Mirren ahead.

Saints are undefeated in their last nine matches against Hamilton stretching back to a 3-1 loss at the SMiSA Stadium in December 2018.
