St Johnstone vs Motherwell match preview

Following last weekend’s crucial victory in the Tayside derby, can St Johnstone climb further away from the drop zone?

A week ago, Liam Gordon was the only scorer, this coming on the cusp of half time, as the Saints beat local rivals Dundee United in Perth.

This ended St Johnstone’s seven-match streak without a win, and was a first victory in charge for caretaker boss Steven MacLean.

As a result, the Saints have moved up to 36 points, five clear of danger, knowing another win here would preserve their top division status.

Motherwell meantime enjoyed their own upturn in form under a new manager, namely Stuart Kettlewell, back in February, so aren’t concerned by the relegation battle any more.

Last Saturday, the Well beat Kilmarnock 2-0 at Fir Park, Blair Spittal and top-scorer Kevin van Veen on target, meaning they’ve now accumulated 18 points from their last ten games, losing just twice.

St Johnstone have won twice at Fir Park this season, 2-1 and 2-0, while these two clubs drew 1-1 in Perth in-between.

Which way will this clash go at McDiarmid Park?
