Stenhousemuir vs St Johnstone Lineups and Other News

Stenhousemuir

Stenhousemuir pressed the rebuild button this offseason and 10 players have left the squad, while 8 new faces have joined. The Warriors have high ambitions but they are linked to a push for promotion in Scotland’s League Two. The League Cup is certainly not a priority.

At least 405 of the new signings are likely to make debuts in this match. Also, as the League Cup allows 1-2 teenagers aged 16 and younger might be involved. Defender Lynch and winger Brown are 2 regulars that could miss as they continue to recover from injuries.

St Johnstone

St Johnstone had a difficult last season in the top flight but they still did enough to stay out of trouble. The Eagles tend to do well in Cup competitions and in 2 of the last 5 seasons they reached a cup final on the domestic stage. Come into this match high on confidence too after enjoying a 5-game unbeaten pre-season (W4 D1).

The squad is still not complete that early in the transfer window and right now St Johnstone are scrambling to sign a new goalkeeper before Saturday. If this doesn’t happen the vastly inexperienced youngster Sinclair might have to start between the posts. Veteran centre-back McGowan was given an extended summer holiday and he has only just returned to training. Due to lack of fitness, he might not be risked in this game.
