St Johnstone registered an incredible goalless draw at Celtic last weekend to put an end to a run of four consecutive league defeats for them.
This Saturday, the Saints have an opportunity to build up some momentum as they host bottom-of-the-table Ross County at McDiarmid Park.
Following a bright start to the season, the Saints have struggled to pick up points. They sit in the ninth place with 27 points, just four clear of the bottom-two. For the Saints, the main problem has scoring goals. They have failed to score in five of their last seven games in the Premiership.
However, they must be hoping to find the net against the Staggies, who have the second-worst defence in the league.
Up until the first week of February, Ross County looked destined for relegation. However, they have produced a mini-turnaround of sorts, and have picked up four points from their last two games.
Last week, they did well to draw 1-1 with Hearts at home, and prior to that, they had claimed an incredible 4-1 at Dundee. That win is their only positive result in their last 14 league games. The Staggies are at the bottom but only three points behind Partick Thistle in the tenth spot.
Both sides have already played each other twice in the Premiership, and both fixtures have ended in draws.
