St Mirren News and Form
St Mirren’s struggles were really from the start of the season up until the start of February. They did improve from there, but the damage had been done. They avoided bottom spot in the Premiership by a point at least and they finished the top flight season on a six-match undefeated streak of form (W3 D3). In total, they lost 22 of their 38 league games but only three of those happened in their final twelve fixtures of the season and one was against Celtic. So they did at least kick into survival mode.
They need more of that. Away from home in Premiership, they averaged exactly a goal per game, but their defence struggled. St Mirren conceded at over two goals per away game during the course of the season. Their record out on the road finished at W3 D6 L10. Eight of those ten road defeats were by a margin of at least two goals as well. They failed to pick up a clean sheet in any of their last ten away games and 63% of their away goals conceded happened after the half time break. They opened the scoring in just five of their road games.
