High-flying Hibernian will host St Johnstone at Easter Road on Saturday afternoon. Both sides will come into this game with highly contrasting forms.
Hibs have picked up four wins on the trot and have 25 points from 13 games. On the back of their winning run, they have climbed up to the third spot in the table.
In their last fixture, Hibs picked up a 2-1 win over Dundee at home, and another win on Saturday could potentially see them leap Aberdeen into the second spot. We expect Neil Lennon’s side to claim a comfortable win against the Saints.
Meanwhile, St Johnstone find themselves amidst a terrible run of games following a promising start to the season. The Saints, who lost 4-0 to champions Celtic at home in their last fixture, have picked up just one point from their last six games. In their opening seven games, they had picked up a total of 14 points.
After flirting with European places for some weeks, the Saints have slipped down to the seventh spot in the table. Both sides have already played each other once this season and that fixture ended in a 1-1 draw.
