Recent respective form guides
St. Johnstone's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Saints have scored 4, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.
Dundee United's away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. While the Terrors have hit 6 goals, 16 have hit the back of the wrong net.
St. Johnstone are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 1 points from 4 matches.
Dundee United's total of 6 points from their 3 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier.
