St Johnstone v Dundee Utd Betting Preview
Location: Mc Diarmid Park
Date: 2nd April 2016
Remember the heady days when St Johnstone were both teams to score bankers?
What a time that was and despite them conceding a raft of goals they were winning games regularly, too. A terrible form slump saw them skirt dangerously towards dropping out of the top six but they have arrested that now.
Their last game was an excellent 0-3 win away to Hearts that surprised a lot more than me. That game was preceded by four points from their previous two home games and now they may have genuine designs on a place in the top three.
If they are going to rediscover their both teams to score form there will be no better team to do it against than Dundee Utd. It’s venturing dangerously close to do or die time for The Arabs and that necessitates a bit of a cavalier approach.
This has mostly been manifesting itself in their away games where seven of the last nine have seen both teams score. Dundee Utd themselves have scored in all but one of them and the other was a 0-1 win away to Airdrieonians in the Scottish Cup.
With the news that St Johnstone will be missing Steven Anderson for a number of weeks their chances of grabbing at least a goal have increased. The question now is will St Johnstone be capable of scoring at least once at home to the bottom side?
To put it frankly, every team in the Scottish Premiership is capable of scoring against them. With the Perth Saints having scored in each of their last five home matches they will be very disappointed not to grab at least one on Saturday.
