St Johnstone v Stirling Albion Betting Preview

Betfred Scottish League Cup

Location: Mc Diarmid Park

Date: 30th July 2016
Time: 15:00

St Johnstone were looking likely to claim maximum points before their midweek hiccup.

A 1-1 draw at Brechin may look like they have stalled but there is more to it that that. Sure, their defensive frailties from last season may still be plaguing them. But they did more than enough against Brechin to win the game.

Furthermore, they started with their three most potent attackers on the bench. McLean, Cummins and Swanson all got a rest with only Swanson making a bow from the bench. We should expect all three to play from the start on Saturday.

The most crucial effect of failing to beat Brechin is failure to secure qualification with a game to spare. Hence The Perth Saints need to win to guarantee their place in the second stages. That should be enough to focus minds and ensure Tommy Wright plays as strong a side as required.

Stirling Albion have been one of the surprises in the Betfred Cup. Their opening night win over Falkirk has left The Bairns languishing in fourth place. The Binos are second but even a point here is unlikely to be enough for them to claim a best runners up spot.

After signing the guts of a whole new team over the summer their home form has been exceptional. But they have lost their only game on the road to Brechin City. Their chances of increasing their shock factor look slim.

Especially now that St Johnstone actually have something to play for.
