St Johnstone will be looking for a repeat result of a 0-1 Scottish Cup success over Dundee.
The only scorer from St Johnstone was Guy Melamed (20').
Their most recent results shine a light on the fact that not much more can be done by the St Johnstone defence. The Saints have given the opposition little, seeing the number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper during their previous 6 games standing at 1.
Aberdeen will go into the match following a 0-1 Scottish Cup win in the defeat of Dumbarton in their previous game.
The only player to score from Aberdeen was Callum Hendry (84').
The strike force from Aberdeen have suffered from a shortage of goals over their previous 6 encounters, contributing the poor return of just 2. In those fixtures, The Dons have also seen the collective goal aggregate of opposing teams equal 3. That trend isn’t assured to follow through into this match, of course.

Team News: St Johnstone
St Johnstone boss Callum Davidson will be grateful to have no fitness concerns at all coming into this clash with a completely healthy group to pick from.
Team News: Aberdeen
Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass has to currently contend with reduced team options. Michael Devlin (Ankle Surgery) and Ryan Hedges (Muscle Injury) are not able to play.
We feel that Aberdeen and St Johnstone could well end up finding themselves level here, with both teams capable of netting.
A draw looks like a realistic possibility, but we’ll see what happens. That’s why we have predicted a hard-fought 1-1 score draw at the end of the match.
