The last two months have been disastrous for St. Johnstone. They began this month on a positive note by winning their first game of 2023.

However, they could not keep up with the same winning form against Celtic. They now have a golden opportunity ahead of them to seal a victory as they take on Dundee United who are sitting at the bottom of the table.

Dundee United lost their fourteenth game of the season with the latest defeat to Kilmarnock. The lack of quality is clearly visible though they adopted an aggressive game plan in recent weeks. This approach cost them two red cards in their last two outings.
