Saint Johnstone has, in general, one of the least positive campaigns of the Scottish Premiership so far, but the truth is that the team came to the break of the championship in great shape and the fact of having 19 games, along with the Rangers It is the team with the least amount of games played in the entire league, just five points from the top 6 is a good indication. Without defeats in the last six games, the Tommy Wright team enters the game after a quiet 3-0 win for the Scottish Cup, at home, against the Greenock, of the Scottish second division. He previously tied at the reception to Ross County for (1-1), in the last round of the championship, even in 2019.
