St Mirren are capable of making their mark in cup clash
William Hill Scottish Cup
BBC1 Scotland, 12.15pm Saturday
Jack Ross's Saints are going well in the Ladbrokes Championship and are eight points clear of Dundee United.
They will be hoping Aberdeen's two-week winter layoff works in their favour and they have the firepower to make this a nervy afternoon for Derek McInnes and the Dons, who are trying to smash a 28-year-old Cup hoodoo.
Perhaps Aberdeen's superior squad should overcome the Paisley side, but Saints should at least give those who have travelled north from Renfrewshire something to cheer.
St Mirren to score
2pts 10-11 Hills
The Dons could hand a debut to on-loan Manchester City midfielder Chidi Nwakali and Niall McGinn has returned for a second spell.
The Saints add Mark Hill from Celtic and Ryan Flynn from Oldham to their squad.
St Mirren have won nine of their last 11 games.
