There have been some memorable matches against St Mirren and one hopes that Saturday`s will be another for all the right reasons.  The Pars defeated St Mirren in the 1961 Scottish Cup Semi Final before going on to win the Cup for the first ever time. Then there was the record home win the following season when the legendary Charlie Dickson scored a double hat-trick.
