Celtic responded to losing against Hearts in style last weekend as they blew away Livingston in the Scottish FA Cup, immediately getting back to winning ways at the first attempt through a 4-2 victory.

Despite scoring more than than any team in the division, Celtic currently find themselves trailing Rangers in the table, with the focus for Brendan Rodgers simply being on keeping the pressure on them.

With the gap between the Old Firm rivals being just two points, there is no room for error as far as Rangers are concerned, but the Hoops will need to secure maximum points potentially capitalise on that.

Celtic have lost just once at home this season in the Scottish Premiership, which should give the team plenty of confidence, especially since the visitors only boast two wins on the road.

Despite St Johnstone’s difficulties away from home, they took a point during their visit to Celtic Park earlier this season after a goalless draw, showcasing their ability to cause problems for Celtic.

That combined with the fact that they have picked up positive results in successive matches should bring plenty of belief into the squad as they prepare for this contest.

St Johnstone followed a victory over Aberdeen by drawing to Livingston in their most recent match, with Nicky Clark’s 87th-minute strike rescuing a point for them.

It was a positive result for the Saints considering it pushed them further away from the relegation zone, as they now have a four-point gap to protect at the moment.

However, after scoring just six goals in away matches throughout the season, there will be some pressure on the attackers to step up and take any chances that are provided to them against Celtic.

Celtic vs. St Johnstone Head to head

St Johnstone Team News

Adama Sidibeh returned to the St Johnstone bench for their draw against Livingston, and he could continue to push for a place in the team.

However, Craig Levein has started an unchanged XI during their past two matches and considering the positive results his team have been getting, it is likely he will keep that going.
