Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
St Johnstone play host to Ross County at their McDiarmid Park in what is expected to be a close encounter. The Saints have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team losing to St. Mirren, beating Kilmarnock, while sharing the spoils with Motherwell. Talented forward Dara Costelloe is back from suspension, while all Sam McClelland, Drey Wright, and Alistair Crawford are out of contention with injuries.
The Stagies, on the other hand, failed to shock reigning champions Celtic (0-3) in their last league match, with the team remaining in the danger zone. Ross County aim to put an end to their four-game winless run on the road and seeing that St Johnstone suit them, away win should be considered. Keep in mind that, though, that James Brown misses out through suspension, with William Nightingale likely to step up.
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.
