St Johnstone will finish their domestic campaign with bottom-of-the-table Ross County’s visit to McDiarmid Park on Saturday.
The Saints have picked up two consecutive wins following a run of six games without a win. Last weekend, they registered a 2-1 win at Hamilton Academical. As things stand, the Saints are placed eighth in the league table with 45 points. They are level on points with seventh-placed Motherwell, so they can still improve their current league position. The hosts will definitely fancy themselves for three points against Ross County, who are without a win in their last five away games.
The Saggies have won only one of their last eleven games in the league. Their poor form means they sit at the bottom of the table with their fate out of their hands.
However, Ross County can still secure survival in the Premiership, but they will need a miracle. They are only a couple of points behind Partick, and if they win against the Saints and Partick lose against Dundee, they will qualify for relegation playoffs.
However, County’s terrible away form doesn’t give credence to their survival hopes, and we expect yet another away defeat for them.
Ross County are without a win in their previous three meetings with the Saints this season. The first two meetings ended in draws, and the Saints claimed a 2-0 win at McDiarmid Park in February.
