Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
St Johnstone and Aberdeen go head to head at McDiarmid Park in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. The Saints aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Hibernian and Dundee, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Dons. Both Craig and Solomon-Otabor are pushing for a start, while trio Davidson – Wotherspoon – May remains in the recovery room.
Aberdeen, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating both Livingston (2-0) and St. Mirren (4-1) in style. The Dons have found their best form, and they are surely capable of beating the Saints, who do not seem to be at their sharpest at the moment. All Jack Mackenzie, Dylan McGeouch, Matthew Kennedy, Calvin Ramsay, Andrew Considine, and Michael Devlin are likely to miss the game with injuries for the visiting team.
