Motherwell v St. Mirren 4th May 2019

Recommended Posts

Again, I don't see a thread for tomorrow's game so I'll start this one off. I won't make it along but we'll hopefully be out to entertain and I imagine Saints will be right up for it and surely more than Dundee were (despite the 3 goals).

Anyway, same team other than Carl in for Gorrin unless there's another ball playing youngster to try in there?

I like the relative closeness and ease of travel that games in Paisley offer so I would be quite happy for St Mirren to stay up.  That said for reasons unbeknown I seem to have been scarred by bad results against them more than most over the years so whenever we play them I yearn for us to give them an absolute bleaching (Friday night Barraclough style).

I'll settle a for a 95th minute deflected own goal winner off one of their defenders arses all the same of course...

We have almost double the points they have this season, really should be winning here.

Should be a good atmosphere as I expect Saints to bring at least 1,000 with them as my mate who supports them said they took that to Livingston.   I expect a close game  COYW

Might be a few Accies fans cheering us on too.

Find it quite amusing there's more posts on the pre season games than there is for this.

We have very little, in the scheme of things, to play for and they should be fighting for their lives. Advantage St Mirren.

Having said that, with the right attitude and the freedom that our position affords us, there really should be no reason why we cannot win this.

Hopefully we'll see some more young players in action at some stage tomorrow or on the bench. This is the perfect time to give them a taste of first team football.

Difficult game, they will be well up for it, will have a big away support, and are in decent form. I thought they were awful last time we played them at home and they still beat us, both teams are now much improved. I can actually see a St Mirren win simply because they will be desperate for the three points.

I’d like to see young Scott get on the scoresheet again and start to make it a habit

St Mirren will be up for it and so they should be. 

But we have won 6 of last 7 home league games. The only defeat being against Rangers.

I believe we have better players in most positions and therefore if the players are at it then we should avoid defeat. 

As for the nothing to play for crap. £62,000 and top of bottom 6 for 2nd year running is worth achieving.

Hopefully Turnbull turns it on again.

Absolutely, quite surprised to see Robinson more or less stating the game did not hold any great importance in the ore match interview.

Turnbull, Cadden,  Campbell and Hastie have all scored crackers against this mob this season. 

Get Scott,  Livingstone and Semple on the score sheet.

I wonder if the likes of Well fan Dean Cornelius or Reece MacAlear will get a seat on the bench.

Quite fancy Semple for a goal if he gets a bit more time this week. Looked right up for it last week, demanding the ball and getting into a couple good positions in his short cameo. 

Fully expect the same team except McHugh in for Gorrin.

I wondered if Robinson might put Campbell in the Gorrin role, play Cadden in midfield and Semple on the wing. Certainly an option for later in the game..

Looks like Ariybi has been told to play more central today - almost in the slot behind Scott - with Tait taking on the duties for wide left.
