Our prediction for this Scottish League Cup match:
Dunfermline play host to St Johnstone in the Scotland League Cup quarter-finals. Dunfermline aim to bounce back from the Championship defeat to Morton, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Saints in Tuesday’s clash. Centre-back Lewis Martins remains in the recovery room with a long-term injury. As always, all eyes will be on the striking pair Declan McManus and Kevin O’Hara.
St Johnstone, on the other hand, failed to impress in the Premiership defeat to Livingston. The Saints welcome former Rangers man Michael O’Halloran back to the squad, and they are surely capable of matching the Championship side at East End Park. Dunfermline suit St Johnstone, and it has to be noted that the Saints emerged triumphant in each of their previous two encounters with the Pars. When the two teams met in the Premiership back in 2012 St. Johnstone defeated Dunfermline 3-1.
Highlighted Player (Jason Kerr):
Jason Kerr is a professional footballer who plays for St Johnstone as a defender. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, on February 6, 1997, Jason Kerr is a product of the St Johnstone football academy. He started his senior career in 2014, and after ending his loan spells with East Fife and Queen of the South, he returned to the McDiarmid Park outfit in 2018.
He made his debut with the Saints in the Scottish Cup game against Albion Rovers on January 29, 2019. Jason Kerr has six caps with the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the senior team.
He scored his first goal for St Johnstone in a 4-1 defeat to Rangers on February 27, 2018. His primary position on the field is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing good displays as a central midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 15 shirt at St Johnstone.
Highlighted Team (St Johnstone):
Founded back in 1884, St. Johnstone are Scottish football club that welcome their rivals at McDiarmid Park. The venue, which was opened in August 1989, can hold up to 10,696 spectators. Blue and white are the dominant colours of St Johnstone’s home kit, whereas they wear yellow shirts and white shorts when playing on the road.
The club’s biggest success came in the 2013/2014 season when they defeated Dundee United 2-0 in the Scottish Cup final. Steven Anderson and Steven MacLean scored for the Saints in the match played at Celtic Park, Glasgow. Dundee and Dundee United are the club’s traditional rivals, with the teams facing in the Tayside derbies.
The likes of John Brogan, Joe Carr, Willie Coburn, Roddy Grant, and Henry Hall are the first five members of St Johnston “Hall of Fame.” The Saints recorded their biggest win against Tulloch (13-0) in September 1887, with the team suffering their heaviest defeat to Montrose (11-1) in April 1893.
