Inverness CT vs St.Johnstone Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Inverness slipped to a first defeat in four games following a narrow 1-0 loss against Aberdeen. Despite the home team having plenty of chances, it required an own goal from Gary Warren in order to separate the two teams. Inverness’ best chance of the game was through a long-range effort from Liam Polworth. St Johnstone moved within a point of Rangers following a 1-0 win over Hearts. After creating multiple openings from dead-ball situations, Joe Shaughnessy scored from a corner in the 73rd minute to give St Johnstone the lead. Sam Nicholson was sent off for spitting in the 83rd minute.

Betting Tips and Predictions

St Johnstone have managed just one visit in the last six visit to the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium. Inverness have been immensely successful in this fixture with five wins. The club has managed just one win at home in the last nine games. Confidence is not flowing through Inverness’ team, while St Johnstone have managed three away wins in the last five matches. I would back St Johnstone to get a rare win at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium. St Johnstone haven't scored over one goal in the last six visits to this ground. However, they have scored eight goals in the last five league matches – just over 1.5 goals per game. St Johnstone created plenty of opportunities in the last match against Hearts. I would expect Tommy Wright’s team to put away those chances.

St Johnstone win – 6/4

St Johnstone to score over 1.5 goals – 13/8

Inverness CT Preview

Inverness are not just playing for pride in the last two games of the first phase, as the club will be keen to gather some momentum and avoid relegation to the Championship. Inverness have managed just one win in the last 20 league matches. The club have been showing signs of improvement in recent weeks, and they have failed to score only twice in the last eight league matches. Yet, the lack of regular wins has contributed to the club sitting three points behind Hamilton in the league table. Inverness have scored the same number of goals (34) as sixth-placed Partick Thistle, but they have been let down by a defence that has conceded 55 goals.

St Johnstone Preview

St Johnstone’s run of three wins in the last four matches has lifted them to just six points behind Rangers. Even though moving into the third spot is still mathematically possible, St Johnstone need to suffer an astronomical collapse from Rangers since the third-placed outfit have a better goal difference. St Johnstone will be more concerned about building momentum going into the second phase of the Scottish Premier League. St Johnstone’s defence has not been exactly great with the team managing just two clean sheets in the last eight matches. The club has had eight different scorers in the last eight matches.
