Saints can keep the score respectable
William Hill Scottish Cup
Sky Sports 5, 12.30pm Sunday
And while that is a tad optimistic, they should be backed to cover a generous handicap in Glasgow in the William Hill Scottish Cup quarter-final.
Nothing more needs to be said about all-conquering Celtic. They appear not to be letting up at all and are three games away from the treble.
But Jack Ross’s Saints are a team on the up. They hammered Hibs in midweek and should have won by more than 2-0.
They are full of confidence and won’t be petrified of a visit to Parkhead – unlike the rest of the Ladbrokes Premiership.
