SCOTTISH CUP REPLAY .....
ST MIRREN- ST JOHNSTONE
I like the visitors here, certainly with the half ball start, St Johnstone are one of the yo-yo teams between Division 1 and the SPL, much like their hosts and there is probably not too much between these two.
St Mirren are without cup tied striker Jim Hamilton, who has notched their only goal in four SPL games and are also struggling in central defence, with one or maybe both, of Potter and Haining set to miss out. These are two key players, even if they start, they are unlikely to be 100% fit.
St Johnstone got off to a slow start this season, otherwise they would be challenging for the title and a place in the top flight, they currently lie in 3rd spot, but probably just a little too far behind the top two. However, they have lost just once in seven and twice in sixteen, winning an impressive eleven of those. This could go all the way and be a long evening for viewers.
5.5 points St Johnstone +1/2 ball 1.94 asian line.... now 1.74 !
