Recommended bets

These two clubs met six times in 2021 with St Johnstone winning the first four, including a League Cup semi and the Scottish Cup Final. Subsequently, Hibs won both meetings, before a goalless draw at Easter Road in March. Just one of those seven fixtures saw both teams score.

St Johnstone’s fate is now known.

Last season’s double-cup winners will contest the relegation play-off, but this is actually a relief more than it is a disappointment.

On Wednesday night, Callum Hendry’s only goal saw the Saints beat Aberdeen 1-0 at McDiarmid Park.

This result relegated Dundee and rubber stamped 11th place for the Saints who’ve now only lost two of their last eighth.

Callum Davidson’s side have been competitive in recent months, but a run of eight successive defeats either side of new year have proved costly.

So, St Johnstone will face either Arbroath of Inverness Caley Thistle over two legs, away from home on 20 May and back in Perth three days later.

Thus, this game is pretty much inconsequential, but they’ll want to be going into two massive matches with some momentum.

Similarly, it’s been an underwhelming campaign for Hibernian, the high point being beating Rangers to reach December’s League Cup Final.

But, Hibs then only won one of their first 13 Premiership matches in 2022, form that saw Shaun Maloney sacked after just 19 games in charge.

Since David Gray was put back in caretaker charge, their form hasn’t really improved, losing 3-1 at bottom of the table Dundee on Tuesday.

So, astonishing, the Hibees have won just two of their last 17 league games, which is why they’re languishing down in eighth.

Will the Hibees win their final game of the season?

James Scott led the line and scored at Dundee on Tuesday, but Elias Hoff Melkersen could return for this one.

Ryan Porteous will continue alongside Rocky Bushiri at centre-back while highly-rated left-back, Josh Doig, might be making his last appearance for Hibs.

Matt Macey’s future is also up in the air with goalkeeper David Marshall set to join this summer.

Despite having the relegation play-off final first leg on Friday, Callum Davidson is likely to name a strong team for this one.

Shaun Rooney scored the winner in both last season’s League Cup and Scottish Cup Finals, the latter against Hibs.

Callum Hendry remains their main goal threat and his partner in attack will continue to be Glenn Middleton, facing his former employers.

Nadir Çiftçi, who’s yet to score since arriving from MKE Ankaragücü in January, will be on the bench as a result.
