Morris daydreaming after a ball came from the middle of the pitch. Talbot picked it up thankfully, and shouts of handball from the pars fans.

Murdoch long to Clark, he was held but nothing given. St Mirren players in a bust up on the byline. Geggs holding McGinn back. Tellow card for Davis nd another word from Finnie for him. Ref having a word with Herron and booked him, but not the St Mirren player who was equally at fault. We`re not going to have any players left at this rate.

Kal does the gentlemanly thing and gives the ball to OBrien.
Being walked off, looks ok.
Morris manages to take out Talbot after they clashed with each other. Jason looks like he twisted himself as he fell there. Physio on for him.
I think I need to empty this keyboard - keys are sticking awfy. Probably too many pies.
Finnie won`t let the game flow - it`s going to be like this all game I think.

Morris makes it a safe on as the ball is played backwards and on to Murdoch.
Both teams out for the first half of this important game. Pars in their red tops, white shorts and red socks.St Mirren in white tops, black shorts and white socks.
I think the club have not realised the size of the travelling pars supporters as we are hemmed into a small section of the west stand whilst the adjacent areas are cordoned off. They`ve got the home fans in the far right section of this stand and also the other three stands. Pars fans are still pouring in and no idea where they`re going to be sitting.
It`s braw sunny weather here in Paisley today, with the pitch slightly wet from overnight showers.
Have ye spotted our new signing yet?
Good afternoon from a sunny Paisley for today`s SPFL Championship fixture between St Mirren and DAFC.
