St Johnstone (4) v Ross County (5)

Midfielder Liam Craig is suspended for St Johnstone while full-back Callum Davidson is out with a hamstring complaint.David McCracken has fluid on the knee but boss Steve Lomas is hopeful the centre-back will be fit.

Ross County boss Derek Adams will keep faith with skipper Richie Brittain in spite of the midfielder's on-off move to Perth. The 29-year-old has penned a pre-contract agreement with the club managed by Steve Lomas but has now changed his mind and revealed he wants to pull out of the deal. Adams, though, insists Brittain will start against Saints, as will Canadian defender Andre Hainault, who replaces the suspended Scott Boyd.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title.
