Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
St Johnstone will be aiming to put an end to their eight-game winless run when they take on Motherwell in the Premiership round 9. The Saints are desperate to record their first win of the season and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Motherwell. Both Alistair Crawford and Callum Booth are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Well, on the other hand, are on a four-game losing run in the Scottish top flight. Stuart Kettlewell’s troops aim to overtake Hearts in 4th place in the standings. Since Motherwell will adopt an attack-minded approach as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Lennon Miller is banned for the match, while all Mika Biereth, Jonathan Obika, and Calum Butcher are out of contention with injuries.
Highlighted Team (St Johnstone):
Founded back in 1884, St. Johnstone are Scottish football club that welcome their rivals at McDiarmid Park. The venue, which was opened in August 1989, can hold up to 10,696 spectators. Blue and white are the dominant colours of St Johnstone’s home kit, whereas they wear yellow shirts and white shorts when playing on the road.
The club’s biggest success came in the 2013/2014 season when they defeated Dundee United 2-0 in the Scottish Cup final. Steven Anderson and Steven MacLean scored for the Saints in the match played at Celtic Park, Glasgow. Dundee and Dundee United are the club’s traditional rivals, with the teams facing in the Tayside derbies.
The likes of John Brogan, Joe Carr, Willie Coburn, Roddy Grant, and Henry Hall are the first five members of St Johnston “Hall of Fame.” The Saints recorded their biggest win against Tulloch (13-0) in September 1887, with the team suffering their heaviest defeat to Montrose (11-1) in April 1893.
