Team News: St Johnstone
Due to a completely injury-free squad available to select from, St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this clash.
We feel that in this game, St Johnstone should get enough chances to find the back of the net against this Hibernian lineup, although it realistically won’t be as many as they will have scored against them.
We can see both teams to score in a 2-1 win for Hibernian by the conclusion of the game. Should be a good one.
