The starting line-ups have been confirmed as St Mirren head to Ibrox to take on Rangers looking for the win that would confirm a top six place.
Jim Goodwin’s side makes two changes from the team which defeated Ross County last week with Richard Tait and Collin Quaner replacing Kyle McAllister and Lee Erwin. Rangers make one change from the team which defeated Livingston in midweek.
Win would clinch top six spot
St Mirren goes into the game aiming for a win which would clinch a top six finish, which would be a fine achievement by Jim Goodwin’s side. Meanwhile, a win for Rangers would all but clinch their first league title in a decade.
Even though Rangers are strong favourites for the game, St Mirren can take heart from the fact that they are the only side to defeat Rangers this season. They won 3-2 in the Betfred Cup quarter-final back in December.
On a decent run of form
In the two previous league matches between the teams this season, Rangers have won comfortably on both occasions. A 3-0 win at Ibrox in August, and a 2-0 win in Paisley in December.
However, Goodwin’s side are on a decent run of form. They are unbeaten in their last five league games, and have plenty to play for at Ibrox. A win would take them seven points clear of Dundee United, and the Tannadice side would not be able to match St Mirren’s points total before the split.
Here are how both teams line-up at Ibrox this afternoon:
McGregor, Patterson, Goldson, Helander, Barisic, Kamara, Davis, Hagi, Aribo, Kent, Morelos
St Mirren XI
Alnwick, Shaugnessy, McGrath, McCarthy, Fraser, Doyle-Hayes, Erhahon, Tait, Durmus, Connolly, Quaner
