The Saints got the better of Ross County to secure three points last time out, while the Jambos came out on top of a five-goal thriller at Dundee.

St Johnstone extended their unbeaten run in the Premiership to four matches and secured their first victory in any competition since December 16 at the weekend, securing a narrow 1-0 win against Ross County at the Global Energy Stadium.

After picking up five points from three league matches since the surprise Scottish Cup exit to second-tier Airdrieonians, St Johnstone have moved up to ninth in the Premiership standings, with a win on Wednesday potentially enough to see them leapfrog sixth-placed Dundee.

St Johnstone’s record at McDiamind Park is relatively impressive, with only league leaders Celtic, Rangers and Kilmarnock having lost fewer matches in front of their home faithful, but just three wins from 12 Premiership home games is a record that is hindering the Saints’ top-six ambitions.

Meanwhile, Hearts’ winning run across the Premiership and the Scottish Cup now stands at five matches after a 3-2 victory at the Scot Foam Stadium at Dens Park on Saturday, when the visitors came from 2-1 down to secure a crucial three points on the road.

After missing out of Europa Conference League group-stage football following a defeat to PAOK in the playoff round in August, Hearts are on course for a top-three finish this season, currently sitting 12 points ahead of fourth-placed Kilmarnock.

Only Celtic and Rangers have collected more points on the road than Steven Naismith’s side this season, with the Jambos winning eight of their 12 Premiership away games in 2023-24, with their last defeat away from Tynecastle Park coming at Aberdeen on December 9.

St Johnstone vs. Hearts Head to head

In the 64 previous meetings between these two teams, St Johnstone have claimed 19 victories while Hearts have won 25, and they have drawn in 20. Hearts have scored 89 goals and conceded 75 in the process.

Hearts Team News

Jorge Grant and Yutaro Oda were both substituted with Hearts 2-1 behind at Dundee on Saturday, with the pair unlikely to retain their starting spots on Wednesday.

Costa Rica international Kenneth Vargas provided an assist off the bench at Dens Park, and the 21-year-old could be rewarded with a start against St Johnstone.
