Hosts to win it

St Johnstone have had the worst form in the league recently; they have lost five games in a row, and have no wins in their last six games across all competitions. It gets worse considering St Johnstone have managed to score just one goal in that six game stretch. On the other hand, Motherwell have been relatively better; they’ve won three of their last six games, whilst keeping three clean sheets. Considering how poorly the visitors have been playing, Motherwell should win at home.

The goals won’t rain down

We’ve mentioned that Motherwell have kept three clean sheets in their last six games; we would also like to point out that they’ve failed to score in two of them. Motherwell’s games have mostly been on the low-scoring side; as five of their last six games have gone under 2.5. In the same vein, St Johnstone have had a lot of difficulty scoring goals recently; they’ve failed to score in their last three, and five of their last six games. Just like Motherwell, St Johnstone’s games have mostly been low-scoring; as eight of their last nine games have gone below the 2.5 goal margin. All signs point to another low-scoring game.

We only see one side scoring

St Johnstone’s games have mostly been one-sided in terms of scoring goals; this is because they’ve scored just one goal in their last six games across all competitions. At least one side has failed to score in six of St Johnstone’s last seven games. Similarly, Motherwell’s recent games have not seen a lot of goals; at least one side has blanked in five of their last six games. One of these teams failed to score six of the last nine times these teams met in the league; and for this reason, we believe at least one team will blank.

Motherwell vs St Johnstone: Meet the teams

Motherwell

Motherwell have not enjoyed a good run of form lately; they have won just one of their last four games, with a draw and two losses. The Well will hope to improve their poor form as St Johnstone come visiting; they’ll hope they can count on Tony Watt to fire them to victory.

St Johnstone

St Johnstone have had an abysmal run of form over the past couple of weeks; they have lost five in a row, and have no wins in their last six games in all competitions. St Johnstone will hope to put and end to their losing streak; it’ll be interesting to see if Stevie May will help them get the win.
