Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
There will be fireworks when St Johnstone and St. Mirren take on each other in the relegation six-pointer at McDiarmid Park. St Johnstone are on the right track to avoid immediate relegation to Championship, but they aim to escape bottom two as well. Midfielder Thomas Sang is pushing for a start, while all Tony Gallacher, Craig Bryson, Chris Kane, and David Wotherspoon are out of contention with injuries.
St. Mirren, on the other hand, are on a four-game losing run in the Scottish top flight. Since the visitors have been struggling at the back of late, we do not believe that St Johnstone will have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Richard Tait is unlikely to feature in Saturday’s clash as he suffered an injury in a 1-0 loss to Hibernian, with Matthew Millar missing out as well.
