Know the Ref - Hamilton home
Soccerbase only shows three other Saints games involving Mr Finnie, one of which was apparently his first league game as a referee! That was a 0-0 draw with Dunfermline in 2006/07. 2007/08 saw the other two games, a 2-0 defeat at Hibs and a goalless draw with Gretna.
By contrast, Hamilton's three games with Mr Finnie (ignoring the one against us_ have all seen home wins. One was against Aberdeen last season where they won 2-0, although Richard Offiong was sent off. The same man bagged a hat-trick in a 3-0 win over Dunfermline the previous season, and he also scored in a win over Partick in 2006/07, Mr Finnie in charge both times. Fortunately he's now left!
So it points to a Hamilton win this weekend. This official is yet to send anyone off this season, but he averaged around one red card every three games last term.
