The two teams at the bottom of the SPL will face off against each other Wednesday in a potentially make-or-break match for both teams like St Johnstone host Dundee with kickoff at 6 pm.
The hosts will be looking to ensure that they still have a chance of making it through to the Scottish Cup quarterfinals but will need to respond well after being knocked out by Morton.
The St Johnstone team has only won three out of its eight games this season. The team is now at the bottom of the league table, and it is beginning to worry fans as time is running out.
St. Johnstone could overtake Dundee with a victory, but they are seven points away from safety, with the club needing to put a string of results together.
The Saints were given a break from the league at the weekend when they played in the Scottish Cup, but their luck didn’t change as Kelty Hearts knocked them out.
Dundee is desperate to win as they sit in the relegation zone, although there are only five points between them and Ross County.
The Dark Blues come into the game fresh from a win at the weekend as they knocked out Dumbarton thanks to a penalty from Leigh Griffiths, and that confidence could help them Wednesday night.
