Ending all square

Ross County have found it difficult to win games recently; they’ve won just one of their last seven games. To be fair, Ross County have not lost a lot of games either; they’ve lost just one of their last five games. This is because Ross County have a tendency to draw games, they’ve drawn three of their last five games. Similarly, St Johnstone have drawn a lot of games this season; only two teams (Ross County included) have had more draws than St Johnstone in the Premiership. It’s worth mentioning that St Johnstone have drawn three of their last six games. Additionally, recent meetings between these two have mostly ended in stalemates; as eight of their last 13 clashes ended in draws. With this in mind, we’re making the prediction that the spoils will be shared at the end of this match.

Backing both teams to score

Both teams have scored and conceded a lot of goals recently. Ross County have conceded in all of their last 13 games across all competitions; they also found the back of the net in 11 of those 13 games. Similarly, St Johnstone scored in four of their last five games, whilst conceding in four of those five games. Considering both teams scored in 11 of Ross County’s last 13 games, and in four of St Johnstone’s last five games, both teams should find the net.

Goals to be in short supply

Finally, we’ll take a look at the over/under goals market. We would like to point out that clashes between these teams have mostly been on the low-scoring side; six of their last seven encounters went below the 2.5 goal line. Also, most of both teams’ recent games have been low-scoring; three of Ross County’s last four, and five of St Johnstone’s last eight games went under 2.5. On that note, we shouldn’t expect up to three goals in this match. Additionally, three of the last seven meetings between these teams were 1:1 draws; so a 1:1 correct score is worth putting a small stake on.

Ross County vs St Johnstone: Team News

Ross County

Ross County’s four match unbeaten run ended at Hibernian last weekend; to be fair, they haven’t enjoyed the best of form the past couple of months. Malky Mackay’s men have won just one of their last seven games across all competitions; it’ll be interesting to see how they’ll fare with Regan Charles-Cook leading the line.

St Johnstone

St Johnstone put an end to their three match winless run with an impressive win against Hearts last weekend; they moved up a spot from last to 11th due to that win. Callum Davidson’s men will hope to string up consecutive wins in the league for the first time since March last year; all eyes will be on Callum Hendry.
