  • St Johnstone have won four games in a row without conceding a goal in the Premiership – the last side to go on a longer winning run without conceding a goal was Celtic in November 2016 (run of six victories without conceding a single goal).
  • Hamilton will be looking to win back-to-back Premiership games for the first time since March following their 1-0 victory against Livingston last time out.
  • Six of St Johnstone’s past seven league goals have been scored in the 60th minute or later.
