St Johnstone vs Dundee United betting tips: Scottish Premiership preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

It’s time for the New Years’ Tayside Derby and, after a much-needed victory on Wednesday night, will Dundee United win again?

The Tangerines kicked off bottom of the table in mid-week, but leapt above Ross County by beating the Staggies at Tannadice.

An early own goal, followed by a Charlie Mulgrew and a late Craig Sibbald strike securing a 3-0 win.

All four of the Arab’s victories this season have come on home turf, with Liam Fox’s team now 11th, one clear of the basement side from the Highlands.

St Johnstone meantime are eight points better off than their visitors, despite defeat on Wednesday.

Callum Davidson’s team were beaten 3-2 by Hearts, on an eventful night in Perth.

Graham Carey lashed a penalty miles over the bar, before Stevie May did score a spot-kick, with Jamie Murphy setting up a grand-stand finish, but to no avail.

This means the Saints have lost back-to-back games, also hammered at Celtic Park on Christmas Eve, but were undefeated in six beforehand.

St Johnstone won 2-1 at Tannadice back in October, with May and then Melker Hallberg the scorers.

Will this one at McDiarmid Park go the same way?
