Three St Mirren goalkeepers have been excluded from the squad for 10 days after two tested positive for coronavirus. First goalkeeper Jak Alnwick, Buddies’ number two Dean Lyness are positive, while third choice goalkeeper Peter Urminsky is also ruled out of the visit of Dundee United as a precaution. Saints signed Hearts goalkeeper Bobby Zlamal on an emergency loan, but he was unable to stop St Mirren losing 3:0 from Hibernian last week. Dundee United has a series of three consecutive defeats, but two of those defeats came from the two best teams in Premiership (Celtic and Rangers). They have to take advantage of St Mirren’s problems and also mutual tradition on Tannadice Park is heavily on their side wining 9 from the last 10 matches.
