St Mirren to remain in Scottish Premier League

St Mirren have assured themselves top flight football next season thanks to a 1-0 home win over Aberdeen last night.

The 65th minute strike from Gareth Wardlaw was the difference between the sides as the Buddies recorded the desired result to keep themselves in the SPL.

Hamilton Academical's late-season revival almost made things difficult for St Mirren but the Accies lost to St Johnstone, allowing Danny Lennon and his men to look forward to next season.

"I'm very proud of what the players have achieved tonight and delighted to get over that finishing line to be honest," he said.

"I thought everyone from the 11 that were on the pitch to the ones that were on the bench and the two that were in the stand all played their part.

"The preparation coming into the match was very comfortable and relaxed and it gave me great confidence coming up here tonight."

He added: "It is a very difficult venue to come to. I'm lead to believe that it is 24 years since St Mirren last had a victory up here. This will be one that is very, very memorable. I told the players that they have made history.

"I have got to give the supporters that travelled up tonight a big mention as I thought they were absolutely fantastic right through the 90 minutes.

"You could hear them from start to finish and they have been like that since the start of the season. I'm delighted to get over the finishing line."
