St. Johnstone to Win
With just four games left of the campaign to contest, things are heating up near the foot of the table in the Premiership’s Relegation Round and second from bottom St Johnstone need a victory over St. Mirren above them to move within a point of safety. Luckily for the Saints, their opponents are in the grip of a miserable run of form which includes seven defeats in eight and St. Johnstone – who have won three of their last four at McDiarmid Park – can harness home advantage again.
Under 1.5 Goals
Two of the three previous meetings between relegation-threatened pair St. Johnstone and St. Mirren finished level at 0-0 and with tensions expected to be high in their latest, crucial tussle on Saturday, another contest decided by slender margins is anticipated. As two of the lowest-scoring clubs in the division, both St. Johnstone and St. Mirren are short on reliable goal-getters and a stake on under 1.5 goals at McDiarmid Park could be a bet worth considering.
First Half Result – Draw
Saturday’s fixture promises to have a huge bearing on the outcome of this season’s relegation battle in Scotland and as such, nerves and fear of making mistakes should have a major impact on proceedings. Each of the previous three meetings between St. Johnstone and St. Mirren were all square at the interval and with a tentative start likely this weekend a similar outcome in the half time markets looks possible.

Tony Gallacher, Craig Bryson, David Wotherspoon and Chris Kane are all listed as absent for St. Johnstone this week.
