Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
St Johnstone and Motherwell take on each other at McDiarmid Park in what is expected to be a close Premiership game. The Saints did well to beat Kilmarnock in their last league match, with the team putting an end to their dreadful winless run in the national championship. St Johnstone managed to register their first win of the process, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to avoid relegation. Even though forward Dara Costelloe misses out through suspension, we predict that the hosts are going to grab something from the postponed fixture.
The Well, on the other hand, do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team collecting only one point from the last five league matches. Considering that the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on the rock-bottom side. Both Obika and Soure are sidelined with injuries, speaking of the away team.
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.
