Team news is in from Paisley as St Johnstone travel to St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership – with Manchester United loanee Reece Devine one of six changes.
The Manchester United left-back comes in for Callum Booth in a straight swap as Hayden Muller, David Wotherspoon, Liam Craig, Stevie May and Callum Hendry come in for James Brown, Murray Davidson, Glenn Middleton, Michael O’Halloran and Chris Kane. Eammon Brophy and Richard Tait replace Alan Power and Ryan Flynn for the hosts.
Greg Kiltie drops out for Charles Dunne too. Both are looking for their first Premiership wins of the season, St Johnstone ending a hectic August after European defeats to Galatasaray and LASK. Manager Callum Davidson said: “They were performing against a team who have performed at a high level for the past couple of seasons.
“For the LASK game and the Galatasaray game my players gave me everything they’ve got. Ultimately it was a sending off that cost us You look at the resources that LASK have compared to us, but we saw our team spirit. The outstanding achievements of last season have given us these games to enjoy but for me you want to progress.”
Here are two sets of teams ahead of kick-off this afternoon, St Mirren sitting on one point while St Johnstone have two.
