A number of the Rovers players are currently on their holidays, but there are still two remaining games to play for a member of the club, the first of which comes this evening.

Brad Lyons has had an enjoyable time north of the border with St Mirren, appearing 17 times for The Saints since moving on a loan deal to the Scottish side in January this year.

It's been a successful time on a personal level for the youngster, who moved to Rovers last summer from Coleraine.

He's scored once for The Buddies, which proved to be the winner against Dundee back in March, and this evening he'll be hoping for a similar result against Dundee's arch rivals - Dundee United.

It's a two-legged play-off Final, with St Mirren hoping to hold onto their Scottish Premiership status against United, who finished their season second in the Scottish Championship.

The winner over two legs, will play in the top tier of Scottish football in 2019-20.

Looking ahead to the encounter, St Mirren boss Oran Kearney said: "United are a good side. They put us out of the Scottish Cup earlier in the season and they have a huge amount to play for.

"But I know we are a better side than when we last played them."

Former Rover Simeon Jackson is also expected to play a part alongside Lyons for St Mirren.

The second leg takes place at Tannadice Stadium on Sunday 26th May, kick-off 3pm, which also happens to be Lyons' 22nd birthday.

Good luck, Brad!
