1. Recent Performances

Perth Saints Look to Sneak into Top Six

St Johnstone head into this game convinced that they can still make the top six before the Scottish Championship splits into two after 33 games. The Perth side are just six points behind Heart of Midlothian, and also have a game in hand on the Jambos. This game against Hibs is a match that Tommy Wright’s team will be desperate to win, especially after their impressive 4-0 victory away at Dundee on Saturday.

The Saints’ main problem this season has been putting together a run of victories. Most wins have been followed by at least one defeat, with Wright’s team also drawing far too many games to be a genuine threat to the top sides. But they have produced some good results, when needed, such as the 0-0 draw away at Celtic on February 18. That win was followed up with a much needed home win over Ross County. The next game after that, though, the Saints were beaten 4-1 at Rangers, highlighting the difficulty they have when it comes to finding consistency. Punters looking for St Johnstone vs Hibernian free betting tips should note that inconsistency ahead of this weekend’s game.

Hibs in Good Heart After Edinburgh Derby Win

Hibs have been in good form in recent weeks, and there is a real momentum growing behind Neil Lennon’s team as the business end of the season approaches. Lennon’s men are unbeaten in four games, and have taken the scalps of Rangers and Aberdeen, as well as Edinburgh rivals Hearts, in those four games. Those victories mean that they are now breathing down the necks of the Dons and the Gers in the league table.

Hibs are currently in fourth place in the Scottish Premiership, with 51 points from 29 games. Aberdeen are just above them, with 53 points from the same amount of games. Rangers, who lost to Celtic at the weekend, are in second with 58 points from 30 games, which makes them catchable by Hibs. Lennon would like nothing more than to surprisingly seal second spot by the time the season ends.

If Hibs want to catch Rangers, though, they must make sure they beat teams like St Johnstone before the league splits after 33 games. In order to do that, the Hibs’ midfield unit of Scott Allan, Dylan McGeouch and John McGinn must continue to turn in impressive displays. Anyone looking for St Johnstone vs Hibernian betting tips for today should note the form of that trio.

3. Previous Games

These two teams have met twice before during this season, with one game being drawn, and one being won by the Saints. The draw came on September 9 at McDiarmid Park, when the result was 1-1. Michael o’Halloran opened the scoring for Saints, with a 48th minute goal, his fifth of the season. That strike was cancelled out in the second half by a Paul Paton own goal, however.

The other game ended in a 2-1 win for the Saints, at Easter Road on November 18. That day, the game was decided in stoppage time. Murray Davidson had put Saints into the lead with just 16 minutes remaining. Anthony Stokes netted an injury time equaliser for Hibs from the penalty spot, before Steven McLean nabbed a winner for St Johnstone with the last kick of the game. Those results make interesting reading when it comes to making a St Johnstone vs Hibernian prediction.

4. Game Prediction

Hibernian are in very good form at the moment, having won four and drawn one of the five games since their defeat at table-topping Celtic on January 27. Significantly, that spell includes victories over Rangers and Aberdeen, as well as a hard-fought victory in the Edinburgh derby, all results which show that they have found some momentum and confidence at the right time of the season.

St Johnstone’s win over Dundee was marred by a fairly violent touchline skirmish between coaching staffs of the two teams, and Saints will certainly need some fighting spirit if they are to win this game. They have a good record against Hibs this season, but Lennon’s men have improved since those two previous games. With that recent record in mind, it is hard to look beyond a Hibs win, though they may find it far from easy. The prediction is therefore St Johnstone 1-2 Hibernian.
