The St Mirren result at Aberdeen dropped as you and I glowed in reflective glory from the result at the weekend. 0-3 away from home is an excellent return at any venue for any side, Saturday’s result is a signal that this evening’s opponents are to be taken seriously.
Even against a side below them in the league, St Mirren put on a counter-attacking display. Defend tightly and hit on the break. Brendan Rodgers will surely have watched the game back in preparation for today and will know that the smaller pitch at St Mirren Park will make the home side’s game plan even more effective.
I am looking forward to seeing Maik Nawrocki play a full 90 minutes. His passing through the lines on Saturday was a standout feature of a very solid performance. Breaking lines from central defence is a shortcoming we’ve had for a couple of years; hopefully we have a resolution in the making.
