St Johnstone vs St Mirren Match Preview
St Johnstone host rock-bottomed St Miren for their Matchday 30 clash as they return to Premiership after the International break on Wednesday evening, looking to finally put an end to their nine-match winless streak across competitions – which saw them crash out of FA Cup in the hands of Celtic (5-0) and earn just one league point.
Tommy Wright’s men have seen Aberdeen (0-2), Hibernian (1-2), and Livingston (3-1) all snatch the points since mid-February. They have been putting on better displays at McDiarmid Park but still saw troubles turning clashes their way with a very tough schedule more recently.
They now hope to make use of a more lenient schedule late in the campaign and challenge the top 6, but St Mirren will surely have plans of their own. The visitors have shown off as a tougher nut to crack lately and we’ve only seen Kilmarnock (0-1) end their three-match unbeaten streak with a very late goal from Liam Millar still early in March.
Buddies had held off Aberdeen (2-2) and Hearts (1-1) on the road and beat Livingston (1-0) in front of the home fans beforehand, which should have them very motivated to bounce back to such a streak in Perth. However, escaping the rock-bottom will be a tough task late in the 1st Phase.
We will now back St Johnstone to bag all three points at home ground and finally end their nine-match winless streak, as we go for a Home win at 5/6 with William Hill and hope St Mirren just don’t have enough firepower to cause an upset.
However, we have seen both sides struggling to impress in the final third and now hope for a narrow contest for the points, with few all-out chances. We’ll thus also go for a low-scoring contest on Wednesday and back Under 2.5 Goals FT at 8/13 with bet365 – which would be the fifth consecutive occasion in head-to-head clashes.
