Preliminary Review and Match Prediction for Inverness vs St Johnstone
After finishing third in the Scottish Championship, Inverness played the promotion playoffs with Partick Thistle and beat them 3-1 on aggregate. Next up were Arbroath who finished second and yet again Inverness triumphed by 1-0 score over two legs.
Now they have a chance to return to the Premium League and need to put on a fine performance at the ian Stadium. That is something the Caley Jags did very well in recent games winning five of their last six games. Thus, coach Billy Dodds will be aware of his tough opposition but will make sure his team puts up a strong resistance.
St Johnstone on the other hand have not won in their last eight away fixtures losing four of them. Moreover, the Saints finished 11th/12 in the Scottish Premier League and have to go through a relegation playoff to survive in the top flight.
With just one clean sheet in their last 15 trips, the Saints are traveling to Inverness having in mind that they need their best defensive performance of the season. Obviously, coach Callum Davidson will field his best defenders to try to came back with a positive result.
