Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in four of seven Hearts home games and four of seven St Mirren away games this term.
  • Hearts have conceded at least two goals in their last three Premiership matches.
  • St Mirren have scored at least two goals in four of their seven away league games this season.
  • After keeping four clean sheets during a run of five games between late August and early October, Hearts have now failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six.

Jambos’ momentum is on the wane

Hearts must address some defensive issues if they are to get the three points against St Mirren on Saturday that they need to reignite a fading title challenge.

Robbie Nielson’s men have carried the momentum they gained from winning the Championship last season into the first third of the campaign, but things are just starting to get sticky for the Jam Tarts.

One win in six has seen them fall away from a position where they were right in the mix with Rangers and Celtic a few weeks ago. Their early-season success was built on a rock-solid defence that was breached only five times in the first eight games.

Back Buddies to give Hearts backline trouble

Things began to go awry last month when relegation-threatened Dundee and St Johnstone both collected unexpected points in 1-1 draws, before the wheels really came off with a 2-1 defeat at then-bottom Aberdeen.

Their last three league opponents have all bagged more than once and they may have even bigger issues there now that it’s has been reported Scottish international John Souttar wants a move down south.

Additionally, Hearts will be forced into a defensive reshuffle after Taylor Moore was sent off last weekend and suspended. St Mirren are the sort of side that can exploit any defensive hesitancy as they showed when coming from two goals down to nick a point at Motherwell recently.

That was the third time in their last five road trips that Jim Goodwin’s side have scored multiple times and, although they could do it again at Tynecastle, the both teams to score bet looks the safest path to profit. A 2-2 draw may prove a valuable selection in the correct score market too given the recent defensive demise of the hosts.
