Tom Hendrie, the St Mirren manager, insists that if the Love Street side are relegated at the end of the season they are going to go out in style.

The Paisley club are the only team in the Scottish Premier League who have yet to gain a point, but they have won their fair share of fans with their attacking approach.

Even against the champions Rangers last week, St Mirren had the audacity to play three strikers, but came out of the match with their heads held high and confident that their first victory of the season is just around the corner. Their chance comes at home today to a flamboyant Dundee.

"We are going into every game playing good, positive, attacking football because that is the right way," said Hendrie. "We are going to give it a real crack but we are not kidding ourselves that we need a win."

Dundee's manager Ivano Bonetti will be hoping his side bounce back after a blistering start to the season was ended by a 5-1 defeat against Hibernian at Easter Road last week.

St Johnstone's manager Sandy Clark has added the midfielder Michael O'Neill to his squad ahead of the trip to Dundee United. The former Hibernian and Coventry man has gone to McDiarmid Park on a short-term contract.

Dundee United's interim manager Alex Smith is aiming to break his side's Tannadice jinx when the Perth side visit - his team have not won at home since last December.
