Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
St Johnstone and Aberdeen go head to head at McDiarmid Park in a highly-anticipated Premiership game. The start of the season has been a mixed bag for St Johnstone, who defeated Motherwell, while losing to both Hibernian and Rangers. The Saints aim to get back on course as soon as possible, and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field.
Cameron MacPherson, who limped off with injury in the Ibrox Stadium defeat, has joined the likes of Callum Booth, Tony Gallacher, Chris Kane, and David Wotherspoon in the recovery room. The Dons, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 3-2 loss to Motherwell. Aberdeen are more of a team than St Johnstone, and seeing that the Saints were beaten by Hibernian in their first home game of the process, away win should be considered. Both Callum Roberts and Connor Barron are injured for the visiting side.
