Paisley Daily Express - - The Neil Deal -

Here we go again, or so we all thought, as Nathan Austin fired Falkirk into a 1-0 lead af­ter just two min­utes of the new sea­son.

But St Mir ren’s grit and de­ter­mi­na­tion to make this sea­son a suc­cess was ev­i­dent from day one as goals from Ste­lios, Cammy Smith and Gavin Reilly sealed a come­back vic­tory on the open­ing day of the sea­son.

It wasn’t all plain sail­ing as Saints were hum­bled 4- 1 the fol­low­ing week­end by Mor­ton.

Jack Baird’s red card did lit­tle to help the Saints cause but still the heads didn’t go down.

An­other red card wasn’t far away at Al­mond­vale the next week with Gary Irvine the guilty party af­ter just 33 min­utes. With the score sit­ting at 1-1 it didn’t look good, but Reilly was again the saviour with two goals to seal a 3-1 win.

But the best was saved for the last game of the month as Lewis Mor­gan tore Dundee United to shreds, while Ian McShane added an­other in a 3-0 win.
