St. Johnstone vs Motherwell Prediction & Match Preview

St. Johnstone vs Motherwell
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 28 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: McDiarmid Park (Perth).

Johnstone is at present, the worst of the lot. They are placed dead-last in the table and is yet to record a win in the competition. They have conceded the most number of goals so far, and disregarding St. Mirren, have scored the least as well.

At home, they have lost all of their match-ups, if not for their draw against Livingston.

Opponents Motherwell, meanwhile, has been a top performer this campaign. They have lost just twice in the 2019-20 Premiership, and this had come against the unstoppable Celtic, and as such, could not be held against the Steelmen.

St. Johnstone vs Motherwell Prediction

The Saints have just one victory to make claim on this season, and it had incidentally come against a much-inferior side, Brechin, in the League Cup. As of now, they went winless in ten of their previous eleven overall match-ups and was so in five of their former six home ties.

Meanwhile, their opposite number won three of the previous four battles, and in fact lost just thrice in their former 14 match-ups. Importantly, they remained invincible in the last eight road ties, of which seven were wins.

Finally, the guests are in pursuit of a podium spot, while their counterparts are stuck bottom-most, and if recent performances are any indication, they are in no hurry to make any change to that situation.

With these observations in mind, await a convincing display by the visitors of the day, Motherwell.
