In spite of a weakened defence - hosts loose in market key def. McGinn ( 21+1) and key def, McLoughlin ( 21 1g). Def. MacKenzie ( 9+1) and key midf. Magennis ( 22) were out as today - St. Mirren was able to gain a 2.2 draw against Hibs that recovering form in last weeks.
On the weekend they were at the fourth acceptable result with only one defeat - against Rangers and with a minimum difference - and I expect they continue so against Hamilton, last on the table, in crisis and with line up problems.
Guests won only two times in 16 rounds, one of them at home, and, except that two wins, loose seven of last nine matches.
Last on the table, they have 1-4-6 10/21 far from home and for this match many problems. Topscorer Oakley ( 4g) is out, one of the three-second scorers Miller ( 3g) is doubtful as key def. Easton ( 15+1), Hamilton ( def.8+1) is suspended.
Hamilton suffered ten goals in last three rounds, with problems in defence and attack and against a team in reprise should loose in spite of an opponent more or less of the same strength.
