Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Aberdeen quickly bounced back from a heavy 4-0 loss to Celtic, with the team recording a win in each of their previous three league fixtures. The Dons impressed in back-to-back wins over Kilmarnock (3-0) and Ross County (3-1), which makes them hot favourites to win Sunday’s football game against St. Johnstone. Seeing that Aberdeen aim to close the gap between Scottish giants Celtic and Rangers, we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against St. Johnstone.
A man to watch in the away team will be Sam Cosgrove, who has already netted seven goals in the Scottish Premier League this season. The Saints, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems in a 4-1 loss to Hibernian on Matchday 13. In their last meeting at McDiarmid Park, Aberdeen defeated St. Johnstone 2-0, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visitors.
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.

The club’s biggest success came in the 1982/83 season when they defeated the famous Spanish club Real Madrid 2-1 in the title game.
