St. Johnstone vs Hibernian Prediction

It has been a promising change of events at the St. Johnstone’s dugout with the double win in the league. Also, the host has recorded both the wins at home which instills their confidence for the upcoming home match with Hibernian.

Moreover, their previous encounter with Hearts gave them a clean sheet in the process. Hence, the host has gained confidence at home and this will increase the morale of the players in the squad.

Three of the seven-goal attempts hit the target in that game, but it was eventually the own goal from Berra C that gave away the victory for St. Johnstone in the clash. Before that, the Saints had a home win with Hamilton. In that fixture, Witherspoon scored a brace and Hendry closed the deal with a winner at the 88th minute of the game.

Apart from the win in the opening match against St. Mirren at home, Hibernian has not found their wining tactics so far in the season. Hibernian has lost three of the five away fixtures while drawing the remaining two.

The chances of the Hibs registering their maiden away win in the campaign is far from happening. After a series of three losses, the guest had managed to draw the last two games away from home. They shared the spoils with Aberdeen and Hamilton with a 1-1 score in each.

As such, the host has more chance of winning the probably low scoring affair in the ninety minutes.
