Game to end all square

It’s difficult to pick either of these teams to win, considering they’ve not been playing well recently. Dundee United have lost five games in a row, and they are without a win in their last six games; St Mirren, on the other hand, have no wins in their last 11 games, with six draws and five losses. It’s important to note that recent clashes between these sides have mostly ended in draws; their last two, and three of their last four meetings were goalless draws. Considering St Mirren have drawn six of their last 10 games, coupled with the fact that Dundee United are winless in their last six games, we believe that the spoils will be shared at the end of this match.

Someone will blank

Winning games isn’t the only thing Dundee United have struggled with; they’ve also found it difficult to find the net. Dundee United have scored just one goal in their last five games. Just like Dundee United, St Mirren have struggled in front of goal, especially recently; they’ve failed to score in six of their last nine games. As a matter of fact, St Mirren have scored just two goals in their last six games. Considering three of these teams’ last four encounters ended goalless, at least one of these teams should blank here.

Going under 2.5

Due to both teams’ poor goal scoring form, their games tend to be low-scoring; eight of St Mirren’s last nine games went below the 2.5 goal mark. Similarly, Dundee United have had their fair share of low-scoring games; five of their last seven games have gone under 2.5. It’s fair to point out that meetings between these sides have been low-scoring as well. We’ve mentioned that three of their last four encounters ended goalless; we should also point out that five of their last seven clashes went under 2.5. For this reason, we shouldn’t expect a lot of goals in this game.

Dundee United vs St Mirren: Team Overview

Dundee United

Dundee United have had a disastrous run of games; they lost their last five games to close out the year, and had no wins in their last six games. Thomas Courts’ men will hope to start their new year with a win; it’ll be interesting if Ian Harkes will help his team snap their losing streak.

St Mirren

St Mirren have not done much better than Dundee United; although they’ve lost just once in their last three games, St Mirren are without a win in their last 11 games. Jim Goodwin will hope to put an end to their unwanted streak as they take on a struggling Dundee United; he’ll look to Eamonn Brophy to lead the lads to victory.
