St Johnstone are currently sitting seventh in the Premiership and it remains to be seen whether they will get the chance to try and sneak into the top six.

With Covid-19 forcing the suspension of the game in Scotland – and in many parts of the world – uncertainty current shrouds the 2019/20 campaign and how it is to end.

Before the suspension was called on March 13, the Saints had just recorded a 1-0 win over Livingston at McDiarmid Park to take them to within a point of Hibs – they also have a game in hand over the Edinburgh side.

It’s been an up and down season for Tommy Wright’s side, but they have recorded eight wins and 12 draws, and here are three of their best results:


3-2 win vs Hamilton at McDiarmid Park (26/10/19)

The Saints were really struggling by the time Hamilton rocked up at McDiarmid Park on October 26.

Following their 7-0 thrashing at the hands of Celtic on the opening day, eight more league fixtures passed without a win for Wright’s side.

That terrible form was what made the 3-2 win over Hamilton one of the club’s best results in 2019/20.

The spoils looked like they’d be shared, only for Callum Hendry to pop up in the 89th minutes to bag the winner.

2-1 win vs Motherwell at McDiarmid Park (12/02/20)

Few things beat a last-gasp winner in footballer, and Chris Kane’s late strike against Motherwell gave the hosts their just rewards at McDiarmid Park in February.

With the game taking place between Storms Ciara and Dennis, conditions were tough for both teams.

But the Saints battled to all three points despite some good Motherwell defending considering the they had Christy Manzinga sent off with around 10 minutes to go.

2-2 draw with Rangers at McDiarmid Park (23/02/20)

St Johnstone got a point against Rangers last month to extend their unbeaten run in the Premiership to six matches.

Rangers struggles in 2020 have been well documented, but they are still a dangerous side on paper.

Steven Gerrard’s time were 2-1 up with 10 minutes plus injury time to go, with the tireless Stevie May rescuing a deserved point for the hosts.
