Guy dispels relegation talk
Lewis Guy insists he and his St Mirren team-mates are not even considering the prospect of a relegation battle this season.
The Paisley club have suffered defeat in their last six SPL games, leaving them just a single point above bottom side Dundee. The two teams are set to meet this weekend in what looks set to be an entertaining tussle but Guy insists it is far too early for Saints to push the panic button over their current league position. He said:
"We are only in November so there is a long way to go and hopefully we can get out of this position - starting on Saturday.
"There is no worry. It's not even been mentioned in the changing room.
"We know we've got good players, a good manager and good coaching staff and it's a good club with good fans.
"We know we will get out of it, it's just one of those things at the moment where we can't seem to get a win." Seven points separate St Mirren from the SPL's top six and Guy knows back-to-back wins over Dundee and Ross County in their next two games could have a big impact on the table. He added:
"It's definitely a false position. It's a big week for us.
"If we can get the win on Saturday, and again on Tuesday, then our season changes.
"I've been at clubs where I've been on similar runs, where you just can't seem to get a win.
"You can go six or seven games without a win and you do everything right but it just doesn't drop for you.
"Hopefully, come the weekend, it's our turn for things to drop for us and then we'll kick on from there."
As well as boost their league position, Guy is desperate to deliver the win for their supporters in Saturday's home clash. He said:
"To be fair, the fans have been brilliant.
"For the position we are in and having not won in six games, they have been first class.
"We want to get a performance and a win for them as much as ourselves." The former MK Dons forward - who joined the Buddies in the summer after signing a pre-contract agreement earlier in the year - is back in contention this weekend after recovering from a hamstring injury. And Guy is keen to use the match as a springboard for his own season after conceding he has not been on top form recently. He said:
"I started off well and couldn't have asked for a better start, to be honest.
"But I've had a bit of a dip in form. I'm the first to admit it.
"Hopefully, if selected, or when I next get a chance, I can get my own season going again."
