Ross County vs St. Johnstone Prediction

The Staggies will be welcoming St Johnstone on the back of a solid three-match unbeaten streak in the Premiership. Their most recent clash on the road saw them hold Kilmarnock to a stalemate, prior to which they bagged wins against Motherwell and St Mirren.

With just two defeats to their name, the hosts have placed themselves fifth in the ladder with eleven points in the bag.

St Johnstone, on the other hand, can slump no further down the table as they have hit rock bottom with just three measly points at hand. It is also worth mentioning that the squad have been at the receiving end of eighteen goals so far, which is the most conceded by any team in the cluster at the moment.

Furthermore, Ross County have lost just once in their last three games on home soil. Taking into account that the visitors have garnered no more than two points from their respective outings so far, it looks like a fourth successive defeat is certainly looming large for St Johnstone.

Additionally, the away side have been admitting defeat without finding the back of the net in their last two clashes in a row. Hence, expect goals to be scarce in this one as three out of their last four head to head games here have also been low scoring affairs with under 2.5 goals on the scoreboards.
