Match preview

Safe to say this League Cup group stage campaign has been an unparalleled disaster for St Mirren.

The Buddies lifted this trophy in 2013 and then reached the semi-finals in 2021.

However, this time round, they will fall in the group stages.

On Tuesday night, the top-flight club were beaten 2-0 at Excelsior Stadium by Airdrieonians on League One.

Having already been beaten at home by Arbroath, Stephen Robinson’s side now cannot get through.

With their Premiership opener against Motherwell just eight days away, will the Saints claim a morale-boosting win?

The newly-rebranded FC Edinburgh meanwhile kick off above their hosts having hammered Cowdenbeath 3-0 on Wednesday.

John Robertson with a brace at Meadowbank Stadium in mid-week as the League Two side took their tally to five points.

However, in this dead-rubber game, surely St Mirren will be too strong.
