St.Johnstone vs Kilmarnock Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

St Johnstone ended a miserable run of form with a 2-1 win over Hibernian a fortnight ago. This incredible match witnessed St Johnstone taking the lead only after 74 minutes through Murray Davidson. However, Anthony Stokes’ penalty seemed to have given Hibernian a point from this home match before Steven MacLean robbed the home team of the feeling with an injury time winner. Steve Clarke saw his Kilmarnock team suffer a heavy defeat at home after a 3-1 loss against Aberdeen. Goals from Kenny MacLean and Kirk Broadfoot (OG) put Aberdeen 2-0 up inside the opening 15 minutes. Jordan Jones attempted a comeback with a 66th minute goal, but Stevie May restored Aberdeen’s two-goal lead. Jones was later sent off in the game.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The away team has been dominating this encounter more often than not. Kilmarnock have especially been getting excellent set of results with four wins in the last six games against St Johnstone in all competitions. Even though Kilmarnock come on the back of heavy losses against Hearts and Aberdeen, these defeats have been at the Rugby Park. Kilmarnock are unbeaten in the last six away matches, while St Johnstone have just one win in the last five home games. I see value in backing a victory for Kilmarnock. The away matches for Kilmarnock have been tight affairs with just one of the last five producing more than 2.5 goals. This might just be the outcome when they travel to the McDiarmid Park, as St Johnstone have scored only three goals in the last five home games. I would back a game with under 2.5 goals.

Kilmarnock win – 23/10

St.Johnstone Preview

St Johnstone have been finally able to end a disastrous run of form that has seen them go from being an Europa League qualification contender to a team fighting to finish in the top six of the table. St Johnstone are under great pressure from Hearts and Hamilton. Hence, it was a huge boost for the team to get three points against Hibernian in the last match. This was the first victory for the club since the end of September. Michael O’Halloran is still at the top of the St Johnstone scorers list for the 2017-18 campaign with five league goals.

St.Johnstone Team News

St Johnstone do not have injuries or suspensions coming into the match.

Kilmarnock Preview

Kilmarnock may have performed rather well since the arrival of Steve Clarke, but back-to-back heavy losses at home is a worrying sign. After having taken points off Celtic and achieved an away victory against Hearts, Kilmarnock would have been expected to perform to a certain standard in the home game against Aberdeen. Yet, the heavy loss officially ends the honeymoon period for the Scot. Kilmarnock have had a decent defensive record, but it has worsened of late with 22 goals conceded in 15 games. Clarke is famed for setting up teams in a strong defensive manner, but Kilmarnock have conceded nine goals in the last six games. Jordan Jones and Kris Boyd are the top scorers at the club with three goals each.

Kilmarnock Team News

Steve Clarke has a fully fit squad at his disposal.
