Hibernian will be looking to extend their unbeaten streak in the Scottish Premiership. The side will play host to side St. Johnstone. The match schedules at the McDiarmid Park on Sunday with kickoff at 6:30 pm.
The Saints head into the clash after suffering their first loss of the season at the hands of Aberdeen in their last outing. Hibernian and Rangers mark the only two sides in league with a three-match winning streak.
The side had a chance to rise on top of the table when Rangers failed to secure a win against Livingston. However, the side slipped with a 0-0 draw to Motherwell. With Rangers already taking home a 2-0 win on Saturday against Kilmarnock, it remains up to the side to respond with a win.
Jack Gross might worry over the reducing attacking threat for the side despite in the final third. This is after the side started the first two matches registering six goals. The side has to worry over the rising Celtic who registered a 1-0 win over Dundee United.
Callum Davidson is tasked with the role of bringing his side to recover from their first home defeat earlier this week. Two setbacks in their previous three matches in the league have left the side two points off the 11 spots.
