Few people foresaw Dunfermline v St Mirren as a bottom of the the table clash.
However neither side has managed to pull together a string of results. Saint Mirren are yet to win in the league. Hence they are propping up the table on a measly three points.
Consequently Alex Rae has paid the ultimate price. The Paisley Saints are looking for their seventh manager in five years. That in itself tells it’s own story.
A new board have the chance to put their own man in place. It’s a big decision that could define more than just this season. While the thoughts of a relegation battle may still seem far fetched to the average Buddie the wrong decision could see matters go from bad to worse.
Meanwhile things are no better for Dunfermline who have lost five of their six league games this season. The Irn-Bru Cup has brought some respite but as it stands they are off the bottom courtesy of scoring two goals more than Saint Mirren.
The fans of both sides are filling the forums with proclamations of victory for the other side. There is zero confidence in either camp which is strange when you look at the quality available to both.
St Mirren have Langfield, Webster, Sutton, Clarkson, Shankland, Walsh, Hardie and Mallan (a target for Dundee). An excellent mix of youth and experience. Equally the Pars have Ashcroft, Clarke, Higginbotham, El Alagui, Reilly and Cardle. All players who have played at top Championship sides at least.
It may be that you have to look at the management to see why neither side are blending into effective units. Of course, one manager has already paid for his failings. But failure to win for the other could turn on the pressure on him, too.

Dunfermline are 2.1 (11/10) favourites with McBookie. Saint Mirren are available at 3.4 (12/5) with the same firm. Marathon Bet are the best price for a draw at 3.8 (14/5). There may be a hint of value with Saint Mirren as The Pars’ price is certainly unconvincing.
If the sides can get their strikers firing the price of 1.8 (4/5) for both teams to score from Stanjames is worth a long look. It is preferable to the 1.91 (10/11) from Betbright for +2.5 goals.
