St. Mirren's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. Buddies have conceded a disappointing 5 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 1 of their own chances.

St. Mirren are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 26 points from 31 matches. Hibernian's 43 points from 31 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 5th position.
