Hibs to take three points

St Johnstone have lost back-to-back games, scoring just once and conceding four goals; they’ve won just one of their last six games. In contrast, Hibernian are unbeaten in their last four games; they conceded just one goal in those four games. It’s important to note that St Johnstone have struggled away from home this season; they’ve lost eight of their 14 road games, winning just three. Also, these teams have met twice this season, and Hibs won both encounters; for these reasons, we believe that Hibernian will win this match.

Someone will blank

First of all, we would like to point out that clashes between these sides have mostly been one-sided when it comes to goals; both teams scored in just one of their last six meetings. It’s been the same case with Hibernian’s recent games; they did not concede a single goal in their last three games. As a result of Hibs’ good defense, at least one side failed to score in six of their last seven games. Furthermore, St Johnstone have struggled in front of goal, especially away from home; they’ve played 14 road games, scoring just seven goals. That’s 0.5 goals per game on average, on the road. On that note, at least one of these teams should blank.

A game lacking goals

St Johnstone have been by far the lowest scoring team in the Premiership this season; they’ve scored just 18 goals in 29 league games. On the other hand, Hibernian have had a lot of low-scoring games, especially in the league; all of their last six league games went under 2.5, with three of those six games ending goalless. Additionally, clashes between these two tend to be on the low-scoring side; four of their last five meetings went under 1.5. With this in mind, this will likely be a low-scoring game.

Hibs vs St Johnstone: Team News


Hibs have improved their form considerably over the past month; they are unbeaten in their last four games, having had no wins in five prior games. Hibernian will look to extend their unbeaten run to five games today; it’ll be interesting to see how they’ll do with Martin Boyle leading the line.

St Johnstone

Things have not gone too well for St Johnstone recently, and this season as a whole; they are coming off consecutive losses, and they’ve won just one of their last six games. Callum Davidson’s men will hope to bounce back from those back-to-back losses; it’s worth keeping an eye on Callum Hendry.
