Today’s match preview is a little different, as we have never played them competitively there is no head-to-head against Peterhead, this preview will focus completely on today’s match.
This is it, St Johnstone vs Peterhead for the first time ever and it could not be on a bigger scale, winner takes all as Peterhead sit 1 point above Saints. Due to Betfred Cup rules an extra point will be awarded for a penalty shootout win, so it really is all to play for!
Peterhead come into this match unbeaten after starting the campaign beating Dundee Utd in their own back yard 1-0, then continuing that form into the next game putting 3 past Brechin City to win the three points.
On Friday night the Blue Toon came up against Kelty Hearts in a match that went all the way to penalties after drawing 1-1 In 90 minutes, Peterhead ran out eventual winners winning 5-3 on penalties.
Saints come into today having started the campaign with a hard fought 2-1 win away to Kelty and then a 7-0 thrashing of Brechin City in Perth. The 100%-win record came to an end after Tuesday night as Dundee Utd won the lottery of penalties 4-3 and came away with the bonus point.
