St. Johnstone to Win
The Buddies just finished outside the Scottish Premiership Championship Group qualifying slots. However, there might not be much doom and gloom in the dugout as they knocked out Kilmarnock in enemy territory. St. Johnstone will be in their crosshairs and they will feel confident about their abilities, especially their scoring prowess. However, the visitors are unbeaten in their last four games and boast of a significantly better record in H2H games.
Total Goals: Under 2.5
There were seven goals in St Mirren's last FA Cup meeting. They followed it up with a 1-2 defeat to Hamilton. However, that play is jeopardized with St Johnstone in the picture. The Saints have not seen three or more goals in their last ten competitive fixtures, and Callum Davidson would not be changing his strategy after knocking out Rangers from the competition, also in an away fixture.
Both Teams to Score: No
The visitors like to play compact and do not allow much leeway for their rivals. The Scottish royalty has tried and failed. During their seemingly impressive run of low scoring outings, the Saints have only seen BTTS realized twice in regulation time. This is an 80% record that Callum Davidson's men boast of, one that might prove to be difficult for their rivals to overcome.
St. Mirren vs St. Johnstone: Team News and Match Preview
The Buddies finished outside of the Championship Group qualifying slots and have not impressed in its aftermath. The Scottish FA Cup remains their sole saving grace. With both Celtic and Rangers out of contention, Jim Goodwin and his men will be gunning to have a considerate crack at the title. St Mirren's attacking woes might impact their preparations and Jamie McGrath will have to find another goal in himself to ensure their progress to the final.
The Saints have not alighted the Premiership with fire but have managed a feat the might Celtics even failed at. They had to dig in deep and defeat the Rangers to ensure progress in the Scottish FA Cup. Callum Davidson's charges are in touching distance of the esteemed trophy but still have to jump over some hoops. Chief to their claim will be the duo of Stevie May and David Wotherspoon, who have eight goals and eight assists between them in the Scottish top-flight football.
