St Mirren vs Edinburgh City Predictions

  • None of St Mirren’s last eight competitive games have contained more than two goals
  • There have been fewer than three strikes in five of Edinburgh’s last nine away League Cup ties
  • Only four of St Mirren’s last 21 home games in the competition have ended in defeat

St Mirren hoping to salvage some pride

St Mirren have already been eliminated from the Scottish League Cup thanks to two defeats from their first three group games, with the shock losses coming against Arbroath (1-0) and Airdrieonians (2-0).

Stephen Gallagher’s side are clearly struggling to score, with those two blanks following on from failing to net in four of their final six games last season.

But matches do tend to remain tight, with none of their last eight outings containing in excess of two goals, four of which were played on home soil.

Can FC Edinburgh make history?

FC Edinburgh, who changed their name from Edinburgh City this summer, have never reached the second round of the Scottish League Cup, but a win here gives them a chance of reaching uncharted waters.

Alan Maybury’s side have picked up four points from three games, the bulk of which came from hammering Cowdenbeath 3-0 last time out.

Promoted to Scotland’s third tier last season, they have lost four of their previous five meetings with St Mirren, including a 1-0 defeat in this competition three years ago.

Three of their last four away League Cup ties have contained fewer than three goals, as have 11 of their last 18 competitive games.

I predict that St Mirren will avoid the upset by getting a narrow win with fewer than three goals in the game, selecting 2-0 as my correct score prediction.
