St. Johnstone prepare to entertain Motherwell at McDiarmid Park on Wednesday evening, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 22 of the 57 previous games, with the Saints winning just 19.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at McDiarmid Park was earlier this season, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-2 winners in a Scottish Premier match.

Recent respective form guides
St. Johnstone's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Saints have conceded a disappointing 11 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.
Motherwell's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. A generous 6 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.
St. Johnstone see themselves just below half way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, showing a record of 23 points from their 20 games played so far, Motherwell lie just outside the playoff positions in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, picking up 28 from their 21 games so far.

FootyMad's prediction ...
Its been a distinctly poor show from St. Johnstone at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Saints will at least gain a draw. No-score draw
