Good morning and welcome to SunSport’s LIVE blog about Celtic vs St Johnstone.
By Ange Postecoglou’s own admission, The Hoops weren’t at their best during the week despite beating Livingston…
Oyo Obilei’s own goal and Kyogo Furuhashi’s shot sent Parkhead’s team to a 2-1 win, but their manager was extremely disappointed at the chance they missed.
Today he is hoping for a reaction from his players, who have a chance to climb nine points up in the Premier League table again.
Rivals Rangers closed that gap to six last night with a Highlands win over Ross County.
But tonight’s home win would have extended the distance to nine by Christmas and would have allowed the green-and-white players to look more than comfortable enough to retain their league title.
Standing in their way is Callum Davidson and his team from St. Johnstone, who are currently in 5th place.th position.
The Perth side have looked impressive lately and haven’t lost a game since mid-October.
Since then, there have been four wins and two draws, including impressive victories away from the Hibs and at home to the Rangers.
Today, they could even move up to third position and pass both Hearts and Aberdeen if they come out on top, and other results will benefit them.
Celtic’s opponents, however, have looked unstoppable in internal fighting and it will be more than a challenge to take something away from them.
Will Postecoglu’s men continue their winning streak or will we be in for a shock? Stay tuned for team news soon!
