St Johnstone will play host to Hibernian on Sunday afternoon at McDiarmid Park with hope of picking up their first point of the season.

St Johnstone had same opening fixture as last year, they played against Kilmarnock but this time they were defeated by 2 goals. They were Mable to replicate the last season’s opening game.

St Johnstone had a poor display in the first game, they lacked creativity and had just take 6 shots in the game while 1 was on target. However, they received 20 shots from Kilmarnock showing they need to step up their game.

On the contrary, Hibernian were superb in their opening game, they defeated Motherwell 3-0 at home. They had the greater possession in the game and managed 8 shots while 4 were on target.

The Hibs will be aiming to pick another 3 points and continue with their good start to the season.

This will be a tough game, however, Hibs seem to be having a scoring spree at the moment. They have scored at least 3 goals in 4 of their last 5 games so we are expecting at least 2 goals from them.
