Saturday, at 15:00, St. Johnstone meets Hamilton Academical on his own at home, a regular band to win a “fall-away” goal.
We know that the first league in Scotland can bring countless surprises, but at this moment St. Johnstone is in good shape and should not have complications with Hamilton. Even without injury, Alston, Anderson, Davidson and Easton, white-blue should make it comfortable. Maybe that’s why bettors around the world are massively counting on their favorites! Anything but a host victory would be a big surprise in the first Scottish league.
St. Johnstone is ranked 5th in the first Scottish league (Goals 12-18) and again has European ambitions after playing in the Europa League preliminaries a few seasons ago. With 6 wins and two draws in 12 stages, St. Johstone is just a podium point and there is a positive atmosphere around the club, good for performance. Instead, Hamilton is involved in the relegation battle and is ranked 10th (goal 9-24) with a very modest attack.
Absolutely in direct matches!
Only Dundee and St. Mirren scored fewer goals than Hamilton, and they are the only teams under white-red in the standings. Hamilton has just won 3 stages out of 12 and comes after a series of defeats: 0-6 at Hibernina and 0-3 at Aberdeen are just the latest scores. Instead, St. Johnstone has four wins in the first league, all without a goal: 1-0 with Motherwell, Livingston and Hibernian and 2-0 with St. Johnstone. Mirren!
We also note that St. Johnstone has won the last 5 consecutive games played against Hamilton, 2-1 three times and twice 1-0. We are expecting a match once again with few technical achievements, but the host team should do enough to win.
PREDICTION: St Johnstone to win @ 1.75
