Motherwell host St Mirren in the Ladbrokes Premiership in what is an important game for both sides on Saturday.
Oran Kearney’s Buddies come in to the encounter on the back of a narrow 2-1 defeat at the hands of Aberdeen.
Here, we take a look at the visitors to Fir Park.
Searching for points
St Mirren sit nine points behind the Steelmen ahead of Saturday’s clash in the Ladbrokes Premiership.
With a small gap now separating the bottom two sides, Saints will be eager to close the deficit and not become cut further adrift ahead of the winter break.
Three points for Oran Kearney’s men would not only help them pull closer to Hamilton, but could also see them get ahead of Dundee mathematically instead of just goal difference.
Must find consistency
Over the course of the campaign, Saints best run without defeat has been just two matches.
A draw with Dundee was immediately followed up with a win over Hearts, and it’s the best the club have managed this term.
Finding some form of consistency could be crucial to the Buddies campaign.
Experience in their ranks
Finding themselves towards the foot of the table, Saints will call on some of their experienced players to help turn the tide.
33-year-old Anton Ferdinand is certainly not lacking in that department, and alongside the likes of Stephen McGinn and Adam Hammill, makes up a solid core for the Buddies.
The Paisley outfit is also blessed with some exciting youngsters too, icluding Ethan Erhahon and the on-loan duo of Alfie Jones and Matty Willock.
