St Johnstone enjoyed an excellent 2016/17 campaign in which they finished in the Premiership top four, however it would appear that this was no fluke as they have kicked off the current season with an excellent set of results. A 2-1 win over Kilmarnock was followed by further league wins over Motherwell and Partick Thistle as well as an excellent 1-1 draw against Celtic at Parkhead, the Saints being the only side to have taken points off the Hoops thus far.
Will St Johnstone keep the momentum going and extend their unbeaten league run going when they welcome Hibernian to McDiarmid Park this weekend? All the indications are that they will and we'll be backing the hosts to collect all three points with the / making the home side a pretty generous 9/5.
Hibernian will certainly prove a very tough nut to crack however and whilst they have only managed a single point from their last two Premiership outings prior to the international break, the Leith side impressed in their opening two league matches with a 3-1 win at home to Partick Thistle and an excellent 3-2 win over Rangers at Ibrox.
Nevertheless a 3-1 home defeat to Hamilton Academical and a 1-1 draw with a woeful Dundee side at Dens Park are certainly not results to be proud of in the slightest and one cannot help but feel that confidence will have been dented in the Hibs camp.
Will this play a part in Saturday's match? It certainly will and with the home side flying high on ten points, we believe that St Johnstone will manage a relatively routine win in front of their home fans and extend their unbeaten run to five games this weekend with Coral Free Bets going 9/5 on such an outcome.
