    THE FINAL - time for promotion 🙏🙏🙏

    Dreadful few years until the Robbie / Ogren revolution

    Big chance now to move forward

    Whether it is Hamilton or St Mirren if we play this at our best we can with this and win well.

    First leg being at home and we need to be taking a lead into the second leg.

    Depends on fitness of Safranko and Butcher but at the moment Iíd go

    Benji
    Watson Connolly Reynolds Robson
    Bouhenna Harkes
    McM Clark Pawlett
    Safranko

    Then have Sow to come off the bench and try and punish opposition late on.

    One step at a time but this is massive for us now and there is some possible light at the end of the tunnel.

    Letís work hard, give our full support and do this.

    COME ON UNITED!!!!

    Hopefully the team can continue on from a great game on Friday to the same level of performance Thursday.

    It would be interesting to see the bookies odds,i would imagine ST Mirren will be strong favourites.We are unlucky to be facing a team in decent form,normally the play off team have been scratching about for results but not this season unfortunately.

    Thursday we're 11/10 & St Mirren are 12/5.
    That's very heartening.

    Team is looking quality now. This is our best chance to go up

    Agree though - St Mirren are definitely no mugs

    Saints are coming in on a 6 match unbeaten run (ok that includes the Fun &#128514 but still you can only play what is put in front of you.

    I donít think both games will necessarily be tight. Home advantage will be big and we need a win to start with so we can make them have to play when we go west over to paisley

    Exciting times

    glad for the 6day rest which should allow a few players to recover from 2nd leg.

    Benji
    Watson Connolly Reynolds Booth

    McMullan bouhenna Harkes Robson

    Sow Clark

    Saints main player is the boy mccallister who is all left foot who plays on right normally and looks to cut in so wanting us to be solid on that side with booth and robson.
    bouhenna was solid last night so doesnt deserve to be dropped and maybe too much of a risk to play butcher after the injury he has (maybe save him until 2nd leg)
    use safranco for impact possibly

    We have given ourselves a chance but at the same time it's against an in form side who will not want to go straight back down


    There is a 50/50 chance we won't go up, so prepare for that outcome too and be positive regardless, with Neilson in charge and the backing he'll get, next season will be a good one either way, we are on the up as a club

    Both teams have hit a run of form, but if United can win on Thursday night they will have the edge over the 2 legs - but it's 50 - 50 and will be a tight match, with the outcome unpredictable.

    United have nothing to fear and everything to gain.

    St Mirren did look really good against Dundee at the weekend, but this was after Dundee were playing with 9 players.

    It's wide open for both teams with everything to play for.

    I don't think they did, very average

    However in good form with a spirit in team and fan base

    The two times the top flight side has been relegated in the play off in recent years they were on a downward spiral

    However despite what some have said in media, we did beat them in paisley while we were down to ten men and that was after the jan window

    They have more to lose so bigger pressure on them, tough to call

    Agree 100% with the above,looking back to the start of the season i honestly thought the play offs were out of reach and i am not kidding.

    My daughter's team would look good against the FUN so we should disregard that one,its probably more appropriate to look at their form v Hamilton which was impressive.Its worth remembering that the player who went hame with the match ball yesterday had not scored a single goal in the league until he came on as a sub at Dens,FACT.

    Results wise Saints have hit form, yes. However against 11 men, they have only mustered 2 wins since January, and one of them was against Dundee.

    Their last 3 wins have been against 9 men Dundee where they 1-0 behind, 10 men Hamilton 0-0 and 10 men Livingston where they went 1-0 behind.

    Let's just say the form table doesn't quite tell the full story.

    Iíve not seen Saint Midden play a single game this season...anyone able to enlighten me about how they typically play? Where do most of their goals come from? Long balls, wide balls etc??

    That's great. Dryburgh 17s are playing in a league with mostly Edinburgh (and area) teams. It's a right pain in the arse. 😂
