St Johnstone Preview – Can the Saints cause an upset against the champions & league leaders?

St Johnstone are currently in eighth place in the Premiership table. The Saints have won five, drawn eight and lost eight thus far, scoring just 18 and shipping a staggering 38 goals along the way. Only St Mirren, who are two placed behind in tenth, have scored fewer goals (17) up until now.

St Johnstone go into Wednesday’s clash in decent form, losing only one of their past eight in all competitions, beating Hearts, Hamilton, Morton and Kilmarnock during that time. Last Saturday, goals from Alistair McCann and David Wotherspoon were enough to give them a 2-1 victory over Killie at McDiarmid Park.

Our betting prediction:
Celtic to Win -1

(odds taken 1650 GMT, Tuesday 28 January)

The Saints have been solid on their own patch of late, losing only one of eight league and cup matches at McDiarmid Park. They are unbeaten in five (two wins, three draws), winning their last two on home turf. Can Tommy Wright’s improving side pick up a shock win over the Scottish champions and current league leaders on Wednesday night?

Celtic Preview – Will Lennon’s troops return to Glasgow with a vital three points in the bag?

Celtic’s title aspirations were given a huge boost after Rangers let a lead slip to lose to bottom club Hearts last weekend. The Bhoys have returned from the winter break with three straight league and cup wins. After beating Partick in the cup, Neil Lennon’s men have secured back-to-back league wins over Kilmarnock and Ross County.

Celtic have been sensational away from home this season. Since a 2-0 Premiership loss to Livingston back in October, the Hoops have won nine and lost one of their past ten away league and cup matches. Only rivals Rangers, who have played two games more, have picked up more away points, as Celtic have won eight of ten (one draw, one defeat).
