Team analysis

St. Johnstone

Although this team is struggling to make their performance better, it is still clear that much need to be done. The team is lagging behind comparing to a time like this in the previous season. In the 6 previous matches, St. Johnstone has been able to win only 2 matches. Consequently, they are defeated in 3 matches out of these 6 games. They were defeated in their last home game against Rangers. Moreover, their home form is in a wanting state. It is worthwhile to note that this team is unable to win 9 of their last 10 home matches. They need to do more in this game to come out of it with something tangible.


The Hibs are currently undefeated in their last 9 of their last 10 Premiership matches both at home and away. The team is in the 4th place in the league standings and will be striving to go to the 3rd place by winning this game. In the last 4 games, they are defeated in only one game against the reigning champions, Celtic. The Hibs are consistent and this may go a long way in instilling morale to win this away game.

St. Johnstone vs Hibernian: Head-to-Head

St. Johnstone thrashed the Hibs 2-1 in their last encounter late last year. This game is among 2 which St. Johnstone has defeated Hibernian in 6 of their last meetings.

Hibernians have won twice and 2 draws have been recorded in the last 6 meetings.

St. Johnstone vs Hibernian: Prediction

The two teams easily find the back of the net of each other. I highly doubt that this match will be an exception.
