Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Saturday’s football game at Global Energy Stadium pits together Ross County and St. Johnstone. The Staggies aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Celtic, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Saints. All Ben Paton, Ross Callachan, Ben Purrington, and Alex Samuel are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Meanwhile, the Saints aim to stay in the playoffs berth, and you should know that they are undefeated in the previous six league fixtures. Alex Mitchell is back from suspension, while all Murray Davidson, Cameron MacPherson, Callum Booth, and Chris Kane miss out with injuries. In their last meeting in the Scottish elite division the two sides played out a goalless draw, and, taking everything into account, we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
