St Mirren v Celtic: team news, KO time, officials and where to watch

Celtic face St Mirren tomorrow afternoon in the Cinch Premiership after winning the League Cup last weekend. The return to league action takes Ange Postecoglou’s team to the only ground they have been defeated at domestically this season, with a 2-0 loss in September. Whilst the manager has said that he will be approaching this game like any other, he will be keen to put Stephen Robinson’s team to the sword.

Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns from the win at Hampden. Benjamin Siegrist remains out but the manager stated that he will be joining up with the squad for full training on Monday. Given that on the last trip to Paisley, Ange made a raft of changes, it is expected that the manager will mainly stick with the team that beat Rangers in the Cup Final last weekend.

In goals, Joe Hart will start. The Englishman will have the settled back four of Ally Johnston, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Carl Starfelt and Greg Taylor ahead of him. In the middle of the park, expect Callum McGregor to start at the base of the midfield with Aaron Mooy and Reo Hatate ahead of him. In attack, Kyogo will almost certainly start through the middle with Daizen Maeda on the left and Sead Haksabanovic on the right.

Predicted Team: Hart; Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Taylor; McGregor (C), Mooy, Hatate; Maeda, Kyogo and Hakšabanović.

Kick Off Time

The game at the SMISA Stadium kicks off at 12pm (Celtic Park time) which gives you plenty of time to enjoy that game then head over to Airdrie for the 4.10pm kick-off in the top of the table clash between Celtic FC Women and Glasgow City where a win puts Celtic top of the SWPL1.

Match Officials

David Dickinson is the man in the middle for this fixture. Dickinson is assisted by Ross MacLeod and David Dunne with Euan Anderson as Fourth Official. Over at Clydesdale House, Andrew Dallas is the VAR Official with Jonathan Bell assisting. Both Dickinson and Dallas have form so Celtic should get the game out of their reach as quickly as possible.

Where to Watch

The game will be shown on Sky Sports Football with coverage beginning at 11:30. Celtic fans outside Britain & Ireland will be able to watch the game on Celtic TV with a subscription.
