Reason For St Mirren vs Motherwell Predictions

  • St. Mirren have kept a clean sheet in 57% of their matches at The Simple Digital Arena this term.

Defence the key for St. Mirren at home

St. Mirren aren’t enjoying a good campaign, there can be no getting away from that fact. However, they’re not the easiest of teams to get the better of, especially at The Simple Digital Arena, where they’ve only lost two out of eight in the SPL.

Not only have St. Mirren lost just 25% of their home matches this term, but they’ve also conceded just four home goals.

On average, Only Celtic and Rangers have conceded less shots and shots on target at home than St. Mirren this term. Motherwell are a decent side, but they’ll have to be at the top of their game to topple what is a resilient home side.

Motherwell look for travelling reprieve

Wednesday’s visitors have the fourth-best travelling record in the division, though they’ve still not done amazingly well on the road, winning three, drawing one and losing three. They’ve also scored one goal less than they’ve conceded. Motherwell have now lost three on the bounce on their travels.

However, it’s important to put Motherwell’s away form into context. They have lost three on the bounce, but they’ve faced the top two during that spell and Hibernian, who’re a top-six side at present. Against bottom-six teams, Motherwell are unbeaten away from home, winning three out of four.

Tight game forecast at The Simple Digital Arena

St. Mirren average just three shots on target for at home, while average 3.57 on the road.
