Celtic’s 4-0 triumph over St Johnstone last weekend shows that Neil Lennon’s men are still a force to be reckoned with at Parkhead despite having clinched the title weeks ago. However, the Bhoys’ away form leaves plenty to be desired and that could make them vulnerable as they head to Tannadice to face Dundee United.
The champions are winless in six on the road in all competitions and remarkably have managed just the one victory on their travels in the SPL in 2013. BetVictor’s 4/6 favourites also have next weekend’s cup final on their minds so Lennon is sure to make plenty of changes and that suggests the Terrors are huge at 4/1 courtesy of Stan James.
Fresh from an impressive 2-1 triumph at Inverness last time out, the hosts are 6/1 courtesy of Skybet to shade it by a one-goal margin and with first choice strike pair Johnny Russell and Jon Daly again leading the line, United are decent value at 16/1 (BetVictor) to finish on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline.
Of that duo, Daly could be the man to follow after he struck twice when the teams met in the cup a month ago. Stan James post 8/1 against Daly notching first and Skybet make him 5/2 to find the net for Jackie McNamara’s side at any stage.
In the day’s other encounter, St Johnstone should keep the pressure on Inverness in the battle for third by getting the better of Motherwell, even though the Steelmen have the division’s best away record.
