FIVE CRUCIAL CLASHES
ST MIRREN 3 DUNDEE UTD 0 St Mirren brought Dundee United’s unbeaten start to an emphatic end at the end of August as they simply steamrollered past the Arabs.
Lewis Morgan’s double and a rasping drive from Ian McShane set the wheels in motion for the players and the fans to really believe they had what it took to win the Championship. The confidence was breeding from that moment onwards, although few expected the remarkable fashion in which Saints would eventually leave United in their wake. INVERNESS CT 0 ST MIRREN 2 Saints battled not just Inverness but also the sleet, the hail, the snow and the rain in disasterous conditions in the Highlands in November. It felt like the day that the players really started to gel, and has been pinpointed by many as the turning point in the club’s season. In a fiesty encounter, perhaps it was the day that Saints were really all in it together, with experienced man Craig Samson sticking up for his men.
