St Mirren v Queen Of The South Betting Preview
Location: Paisley 2021 Stadium
Date: 6th February 2016
The most either St Mirren or Queen Of The South have to show for their efforts of late is a win over Alloa.
Queens haven’t beaten anyone currently in the top half of the table all season while St Mirren have beaten just the one, and that’s Queens. Another victory for The Buddies would see them close the gap on the top half to just four points and that would mean the playoffs are back on.
Rangers, Hibs and Falkirk are storming away with this division and now there are five clubs with a legitimate belief that they can take the last of the playoff places. It’s a bit of a stretch to think St Mirren are one of the five but in reality, they are.
The form of the four clubs directly above them is far from inspiring. The difference between them has been the ability of the likes of Queen Of The South to beat the teams below them. The Paisley Saints have been struggling to do that but things may be about to change.
Last week St Mirren finally got the home win monkey off their back. They also increased the gap to second bottom Livingston easing relegation fears ever so slightly. Now they can start to look above them and the signings made by Alex Rae in the transfer window suggest he is doing just that.
Rocco Quinn, David Clarkson and Gary Irvine are players with proven ability at Scottish Premiership level and will provide much needed experience to the St Mirren team. All three of them featured in the 3-1 home win over Alloa as did their fourth signing of the window, Alex Cooper.
Compared to Queen Of The South who did little business (yet) this January injection could make a big difference in the run in.
