St Mirren vs Dunfermline Match Preview
St Mirren have struggled to keep hold of their high team spirits through the pre-season too and they’ve only seen a 2-0 loss at Peterborough and a 1-1 draw at Stenhousemuir in two July outings, as Oran Kearney’s men now take on Dunfermline in League Cup hoping to bounce to the winning ways when it matters.
Buddies kept hold of a top-flight status only just as they beat Dundee United on penalties after two draws against the Championship rivals, struggling for stability at the back but still bagging points late last term. They’ll now want to build on the positives and we should be in for a strong challenge on Sunday.
Dunfermline have, on the other hand, kicked off their campaign with a 0-1 win over Forfar Athletic but struggled to build on the performance, seeing a comfortable 1-3 loss to Hibernian and now searching for a quick fix as open the new campaign with a trip to Simple Digital Arena.
Pars have struggled to turn clashes their way beforehand too and were unable to produce in the final third on the regular, which will be even more worrying. Those in the know rate them favourites to finish in the top 2 but the visitors have a lot to prove and we don’t see them off to a good start here.
We will thus back St Mirren to turn a rather narrow clash their way and doing so at 4/6 with Coral feels like buying money for old rope – especially seeing Dunfermline struggle for goals away from home through most part of 2019.
With that in mind, we now hope to see another solid display from the Buddies here and we’ll also back them to keep a clean sheet at 6/4 with Ladbrokes. They will be very motivated to impress at the back and should be able to do so against Championship rivals.
