St Johnstone vs Ayr Predictions

  • St. Johnstone play one division above Saturday’s opponents, Ayr
  • St. Johnstone are unbeaten, in 90 minutes, in Group F
  • Ayr have failed to win any of their last five competitive away matches

St. Johnstone are finally getting the hang of things

The time of year in which the Group Stage of the Scottish League Cup is played means many teams will use it as pre-season for the League fixtures ahead. St. Johnstone were slowly into stride in the competition, drawing with both Annan and Queen of the South, before losing on penalties on each occasion. The SPL sides finally got the hang of things when they put four past Elgin in midweek. St. Johnstone need to win on Saturday to have any chance of progressing as one of the best second-placed teams and with that added motivation, they should have enough to see of their Championship counterparts.

Ayr’s points tally is slightly misleading

Despite being on five points after three games in Group F, Ayr are yet to win a match this season. Saturday’s visitors were awarded a walk over in what was supposed to be their first match in the competition against Elgin and have followed up with defeats against Queen of the South and a loss on penalties against Annan. Ayr struggled on the road at the back end of last season and have now failed to win any of their last five competitive away matches. The visitors will have a hard time ending that run on Saturday against SPL opposition.

St. Johnstone to Win and Over 2.5 Match Goals will be the main selection for Saturday’s game. St. Johnstone’s three matches in the competition so far have averaged 3.33 goals per game. The correct score prediction for this one will be for it to finish 3-1 to the hosts.
