Will either of these two teams climb away from danger?
Of the two, Motherwell’s position is more precarious, sat ninth, just two clear of danger, and four points worse-off than their visitors.
Last time out, before the World Cup break, Stevie Hammell’s team drew 1-1 with St Johnstone, thanks to Blair Spittal’s equaliser at McDiarmid Park.
However, this means the Steelmen have won just one of their last seven Premiership matches, this coming against bottom of the table Dundee United.
St Mirren meantime sat third on 1 October, having won five of their last six, including a momentous victory over Celtic.
Since then though, Stephen Robinson’s team have only won one of seven this, just like Motherwell, coming over Dundee United.
There were encouraging signs last time out though, with the Saints holding Rangers to a 1-1 draw, courtesy of Jonah Ayunga’s opener.
Motherwell won 1-0 in Paisley on the opening day of the season, so will this one go the same way at Fir Park?
