St. Mirren will be hoping to improve on their poor home form, collecting just 4 draws from the last six contests. Buddies have conceded a disappointing 5 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 2 of their own chances.
Celtic's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The games have constituted a decent return of 13 goals for the The Bhoys, and 4 goals against.
St. Mirren are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 24 points from 29 matches. Celtic's total of 57 points from their 29 games sees them sitting in second place in SPL.
