Frustrated St Mirren were cruising at 2-0 up when pouring rain and puddles on the pitch put paid to their clash with Ross County a fortnight ago but with the Staggies currently looking a bit under the weather themselves, the Buddies should ensure lightning strikes twice by getting their noses in front and this time claiming a deserved victory in the pair’s rescheduled fixture.
Surprisingly, given that Danny Lennon’s men have won three of the last four, not including that abandoned fixture, William Hill price the hosts at as high as 8/5, odds high enough to warrant a single, while the visitors are 19/10 at BetVictor to make the most of their second chance by claiming all three points.
bet365′s 12/5 about it finishing all square at Love Street could well prove popular seeing as the duo are separated by just a point in the table but as Derek Adams’s boys have lost three of their last four and have picked up just the one point from five away matches, the Buddies have to be fancied.
Moreover, the travel-sick Staggies have managed just two goals on the road this term so a case can be made for Paddy Power’s generous 10/3 posted against a third victory ‘to nil’ in five outings for the improving Paisley outfit.
More specifically, BetVictor chalk the home side up at 13/1 to notch twice without reply, just as they had done when proceedings were brought to a halt in the abandoned contest and betway go 3/1 about Lennon’s charges leading at the end of each half.
In attack, St Mirren front man Steven Thompson has helped himself to four goals in five matches and also struck in that halted clash with County two weeks ago so he’s the obvious first scorer choice at 11/2 via bet365, who also make him 7/4 to net at any stage.
