Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
McDiarmid Park will host Saturday’s football game between St Johnstone and Hibernian, who face each other in the final game of the regular season. St Johnstone have been struggling in the season finale, with the team losing each of their last three league fixtures, and it is no wonder the odds for away triumph have been dropping. Experienced forward Graham Carey is pushing for a start, while defender Andrew Considine is back from suspension. All Nicky Clark, Murray Davidson, and Chris Kane should miss out with injuries.
The Hibs, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Hearts, and a triumph over St Johnstone will see them book their place in the Championship Group. Since St Johnstone have little to play for in Saturday’s encounter, we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from the match. All Martin Boyle, Aiden McGeady, and Kyle Magennis are injured for the away side.
