Dundee United News
Club captain Mark Reynolds missed out the friendly with Kilmarnock due to a recently sustained knock but could be fit enough to feature on the team sheet here. Harkes and Butcher are expected to partner along in central midfield. Whereas, Pawlett, Smith and Mochrie are likely to start in behind centre forward Lawrence Shankland. They can be added to the Dream 11 fantasy Football side.
Doubtful: Mark Reynolds
St. Johnstone Team News
Zander Clark should start in between the sticks for the visitors. Gordon, Kerr and McCart are likely to be the back three. Shaun Rooney and Scott Tanser could be utilized as the wing backs. Wotherspoon, McCann and Liam Craig could feature in the midfield region. Callum Hendry and Stevie May are in contention to lead the attack for their side.
St. Johnstone Playing 11 (Probable)
Goalkeeper- B Siegrist
Defenders- L Smith, J Robson, J Kerr, J McCart
Midfielders- C Butcher, P Pawlett, D Wotherspoon, S Rooney
Forwards- L Shankland (c), S May (vc)
Lawrence Shankland was in impeccable form for Dundee United in the Championship. The centre forward could once again pose a threat here as he bagged 28 goals from 33 games last season.
Steven Milne can play a pivotal role up top for St. Johnstone. Milne netted 14 goals from 32 appearances in the previous season.
Nicky Clark got himself seven goals from 22 appearances in the Scottish Premiership last season for Dundee United.
Callum Hendry can be an attacking threat from St. Johsnstone’s camp. Hendry has registered nine goals and an assist from the last 27 games.
Stevie May could also be named on the teams sheet for St. Johnstone as he has scored seven goals and three assists from the last 27 appearances for his side.
Before signing off, St. Johnstone went unbeaten in their last seven games in the Premiership. Meanwhile, Micky Mellon’s Dundee United side earned promotion after an impressive campaign in the Championship. With this being the first game for both sides, we can expect a bit of early rustiness. With that being said, the today match prediction odds are in favour of a draw by 2.18 according to bet365.
