Scottish Premiership Relegation: St Mirren favourites to finish bottom

St Mirren's chances of maintaining their Scottish Premiership status for another season are fading very quickly indeed

The battle to avoid finishing bottom of the Scottish Premiership is very much a three-horse race this season with St Mirren, Dundee and Hamilton Academical all very much in the danger zone as things stand. The Accies do enjoy a three-point lead over second-bottom club Dundee, however St Mirren are the side which look most likely to drop straight down into the Championship at the end of the regular season, the Paisley outfit sitting rock-bottom of the division with just seventeen points collected from their twenty-nine league games this term. The bookmakers certainly don’t fancy their chances of staying in the top-flight at the end of the campaign with most firms going Evens that they drop straight into the second tier for the start of 2019/20 by finishing bottom of the pile.

The Buddies did help their cause when beating Livingston 1-0 earlier this month and this came on the back of creditable draws away to Aberdeen and Heart of Midlothian, however the writing really is on the wall for Oran Kearney’s men and a 1-0 defeat at home to Kilmarnock last time out pushed them deeper into trouble.

All isn’t lost for St Mirren however with Dundee sitting just a single point above them in the league table. The Dark Blues have only managed four wins this season and have lost their last three Premiership outings by an aggregate scoreline of 9/2, therefore the Taysiders certainly cannot rest on their laurels just yet. The bookmakers have them chalked-in as 5/4 second-favourites to finish bottom of the table, ahead of 9/2 shots Hamilton Academical.
