Aberdeen travel to McDiarmid Park in Perth this evening to face St. Johnstone, knowing that a win will shoot them up the table into 7th, a far more comfortable position than their current 11th (2nd bottom). St Johnstone are up in 4th and will be expecting to beat The Dons.
Aberdeen have been in dreadful form this season away from home. With only 1 point gained from their last 5 away games, they know that it will be a struggle against St.Johnstone.
St.Johnstone are now under the control of new boss Steve Lomas who will be making his managerial debut for the club tonight. He has made it clear that all of his charges will be playing for their shirt. This may up the performance level of players, as well as the normal improvement a team shows when under a new boss.
Looking at the history of the fixture, St.Johnstone have only recorded only 1 win in their last 8 matches when at home to Aberdeen. The games they have played have also had very few goals, with only 7 goals being scored in total in their last 6 meetings.
Aberdeen may feel that this could be a chance to turn things around, but they are really lacking at the moment in all departments.
From a betting stance it may pay to look at the goals (or lack of them) market. St.Johnstone’s last 4 home games have featured under 2.5 goals, and tonight may see no change. Priced at 4/6 with Ladbrokes, this may be the way to go.
Francisco Sandaza is St.Johnstone’s top goalscorer with 7 so far this season and is 5/1 with Ladbrokes to score the first goals tonight.
Aberdeen have failed to score in 4 of their last 5 away league games and at 5/6 at Ladbrokes for both teams NOT to score, it looks a very good bet.
Both teams NOT to score 5/6 with Ladbrokes
