Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
St. Johnstone and Ross County go head to head at McDiarmid Park in a postponed Scottish Premier League game on Wednesday evening. The Saints head into the match following a 2-0 loss to Motherwell, with the team eyeing their first league win since October 30. St. Johnstone are eager to move away from the rock-bottom, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Both Cameron MacPherson and David Wotherspoon are sidelined with injuries for the home team.
The Staggies, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Livingston in their last league match. Ross County have already suffered five defeats on the road this season, and seeing that the Saints are desperate to put an end to their dreadful losing run, home win should be considered. Defender Alex Iacovitti continues to miss out with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the away side.
