St Mirren midfielder Kyle Magennis aims to continue the Paisley fear factor when Livingston visit tomorrow.

The Buddies only lost two of their last 24 home games of their recent spell in the Ladbrokes Championship and started their Premiership campaign with a 2-1 victory over Dundee at the Simple Digital Arena.

After defeats on the road against Rangers and in the Betfred Cup against Aberdeen, Magennis is looking for another home win against their fellow Premiership newcomers.

"Ultimately what we want is for teams to come to Paisley and be scared to play us because we don't lose there often," he said.

"So I hope we can get another home win on Saturday and that would be two wins out of two. Teams would be worried about coming."

The 19-year-old feels Saints have a good chance of maintaining the momentum of Jack Ross's spell in charge following the arrival of Alan Stubbs.

"It's been brilliant from the first day he came in during pre-season," Magennis said. "It's like nothing has changed. It's different boys and different management but there is a good team spirit about us.

"Obviously Jack Ross liked to play football and the gaffer has come in and that's what he is trying to implement as well. Nothing has changed that much, a different formation which will take a bit of time to get used to but once we are used to that I feel we will be a good side.

"He is always telling me to make forward runs and get on the ball more, so that is something I can hopefully do and add a few goals to my game."

Magennis was linked with a potential move to join Ross at Sunderland this summer but he signed a contract extension at his home town club instead.

"It was only really rumours, I never heard anything about it, but once I signed the contract that was it," he said.

"I still had two years on my deal before that and I just extended it to three years. I will give my all while I am here.

"A lot of my family are St Mirren fans, so I knew what it meant for them to get promoted. It was brilliant and hopefully we can stay in the league and do as well as we can."
