Kilmarnock vs St.Johnstone Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Kilmarnock secured a FA Cup quarter-final replay with Aberdeen after a 1-1 draw at the Pittodrie Stadium. Graeme Shinnie provided Aberdeen with the lead after just nine minutes on the clock. After being outplayed by the hosts in the first half, Steve Clarke’s men were much better in the second half and were rewarded by Kris Boyd’s penalty in the 68th minute. St Johnstone’s weekend game against Hamilton was called off, thus leaving the club to ponder upon the 4-1 loss against Rangers. Goals from James Tavernier, Josh Windass, Sean Goss, and Alfredo Morelos were able to provide a huge win for Rangers, while Jason Kerr came up with a consolation for Tommy Wright’s team.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Remarkably, the last five games between these two teams have ended up as an away win. The possibility of this trend continuing looks unlikely, as Kilmarnock have been playing some excellent football over the last few months. Despite coming on the back of three consecutive draws, Kilmarnock have more than enough strength to get a win over a St Johnstone outfit that has lost three out of the four. I see an excellent price offered for a Kilmarnock win. Even though Kilmarnock have been without a defeat in the last seven games across all competitions, they have been quite poor at the back with just one clean sheet in five. St Johnstone continue to lack the threat going forward and they have been unable to score in four consecutive away games. I would back a clean sheet for Kilmarnock.

Kilmarnock win – 21/20

Kilmarnock clean sheet – 13/8

Kilmarnock Preview

Kilmarnock remain as one of the strong teams in the Scottish Premier League coming into this match, and the club showed no signs of slacking even with the Scottish FA Cup entering into a crucial period. Kilmarnock still have the opportunity to reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup, while the club are on course to even catch fourth-placed Hibernian. Kilmarnock may be on the edge of the Europa League qualification play-offs, but the team can open up an advantage over the likes of Motherwell and St Johnstone. Rangers, Celtic, and Hibernian are the only teams to have taken more points than Kilmarnock. Kris Boyd has 12 goals in the league, while the 34-year-old has also picked up three goals in other competitions.

Kilmarnock Team News

Steve Clarke does not have injury worries coming into this match.

St.Johnstone Preview

St Johnstone went through a purple patch by getting a point against Celtic and a win over Ross County. However, the team has been brought back to the ground rather quickly, as Rangers produced a comprehensive win at the McDiarmid Park. St Johnstone were denied the opportunity to recover quickly from this loss. Now, the club are on the road for the next two SPL matches. Time is running out for St Johnstone in order to return to the top six, as the team only has six regular-season matches. The lack of a goal threat continues to be the problem for St Johnstone, as the team has managed a paltry four goals in the last six games.

St.Johnstone Team News

Ricky Foster (tendon) and Stefan Scougall (knee) are the players unavailable for St Johnstone.
