The SPL Today

A quick preview today with part two to follow before tomorrow’s games. I’m writing through the fog of a European hangover. Actually, an IPA hangover. The Euro debacle is to blame for the gnawing sense of despair.

Three games to look at. Today’s predictions were made by my sister-in-law. Can probably not being any worse:

Aberdeen v Kilmarnock
A good couple of weeks for Aberdeen, flying high in the league. Bad news in midweek with the loss of Fraser Fyvie for the season but we expect their decent run to continue with a 2-1 home win.

Inverness v Hamilton
Hamilton don't look like they can buy a win, two 4-0 league defeats followed by a not particularly shocking loss to Raith in the League Cup. Inverness isn't an easy place to go to either. Which might make a 1-1 prediction a bit strange here. But it's out of my hands.

Rangers v St Johnstone
The Gers march on stubbornly. Not a great start for St Johnstone but one point seems a paltry return for a couple of solid enough performances. Can't see them improving on that today: a 3-0 home win.

So far: A poor two out of six last week leaves me on 5 out of 12 for the season so far. Still, a better start than Hamilton.
