We have great momentum behind us from the last 6 fixtures - so hope we can continue that into this one, although I think our away form has been better than home this season? Will be interesting to see what starting XI Canzo goes with - I'd keep it unchanged from last week.

Saints - they are on a bit of a stop start run over the last few games (prior to which they couldn't score for love nor money for several games), playing well and beating the Hobos at ER, but then losing to a resurgent Killie last weekend where they looked poor.

I can see us conceding but I'm hopeful of a 2-1 win for Lanarkshire's finest.

Tough one to call. Our games with St Johnstone are usually close. There wasn't much between us at McDiarmid, when we were on our losing run and missing players, and they were doing well. With roles reversed, you'd expect us to get a result, and there's no doubt we're now in better form than them.

Despite our good run, we haven't put much between us and the teams below - even Partick are still within striking distance, so I'd hope that's sufficient motivation for us to work hard for the win. A draw wouldn't be a bad result, but we should really be looking to win this. Rojano and/or Templeton to score, and Accies to win 2-1, moving up the table.

Daylight robbery yet again by the agricultural townies.How the hell we lost again to this lot is one of the mysteries of life.

We just knew that that lot would score from their first attack and defend,which is how we had to score first.

A bad three points to lose when you look at other scores today.

Really disappointing but we’ve done that to a few teams this season. The team did well in the first half, but we really struggled in the second half for one reason or another. Let’s just hope this and an inevitable defeat against Celtic don’t completely knock us. We have 4 four winnable games before the break.

Tough to take. We were the better team and should have won. If we could have found the net, we would have won, but we couldn't, and you could see how their goal took the wind out of our sails.

5-3-2 formation JUST isn't working. Darrren Lyon is an absolute passenger. Mackinnon and Greg Docherty are having to pick up his slack on numerous occasions. The gaps in the centre of our midfield are glaring to see. St Johnstone has to be the poorest side they've been in years and we have now twice failed to take a point from them.
*The goal*
Obvious miss-communication, Mcmann and Dougie don't work well as a left sided string. It looked to me like Scott was going for it and Dougie slid in and pulled out at the last second, leaving Scott flat footed.
Speaking of flat feet - Sarris/Mcmann passing ability is diabolical, I see youth team centre backs with better ability to pass over 20 yards, I just don't understand how you get to this level without the fundamentals nailed down.
Redmond should've had the start over Lyon, I am however leaning on the notion of Massimo taking the centre midfield stage, he brings much needed height and composure. He's ALWAYS looking to get the ball to his feet too.
The Rojano miss was a sore one, difficult one to strike but all he had to do was put it on target for a sure-fire goal.
The Lyon miss to me watching live looked more clean cut, the keeper was still 6+ yards away, he could've placed it low but went for the chip and failed.
The second half we were very poor, St Johnstone patched up the holes, leaving both Rojano and Templeton doubled up on by the defence of STJ, leaving little room for creativity. Our 'wingbacks' are barely used to stretch the play, instead sacrificing our central midfield.

Overall despite the numerous chances, a poor passing display, reckless abandon from our defensive lineup at times, this game was a poor example of football for the vast majority of it.
