Dundee United vs St Mirren
Under 2.5 goals- 8/15!
Neither team have particularly enjoyed their seasons so far, meaning a victory would be most welcome for both.
St Mirren began the new Premiership season with back-to-back defeats, before finally getting off the mark last weekend against Ross County.
In a battle of the bottom two in Paisley, Richard Tait’s stunning curling strike proved to be the only goal of the afternoon.
A massive relief for Stephen Robinson in particular who, after arriving in February, has lost eight of his 15 Premiership matches in charge, with that just his fourth win.
Dundee United meanwhile suffered the joint-biggest defeat by a Scottish club ever in Europe nine days ago.
Despite winning the first leg 1-0 at Tannadice, the Tangerines were then hammered 7-0 in Alkmaar by AZ last mid-week.
The Dutch club scored six times in a 25 minute period as the Arabs spectacularly crashed out the Europa Conference League.
Given this, what Jack Ross’ side didn’t need three days later was to fall behind at Tynecastle after just 44 seconds.
In that one, Dundee United actually were 3-0 down at one stage, eventually losing 4-1 to Hearts, with Steven Fletcher’s penalty little consolation.
This means Dundee United are tenth with the Saints in eight.
So, both desperately need a victory at Tannadice.
