    Opening in 1989, McDiarmid Park has been the home to St Johnstone following the sale of Muirton Park.

    After selling Muirton to Asda, the land on which McDiarmid was built on was gifted to them by a local farmer who saw it as a gift to the people of Perth.

    It cost just under £5 million to construct the stadium and the highest attendance at the venue for a football match came on the 26th February 1991 against Rangers when 10,721 supporters filled the stadium.

    The stadium is a regular host of the Scottish Challenge Cup and has also hosted Rugby Union matches.

The stadium entrance is first left.

    From Edinburgh (M90)

    On approach to Perth take the Perth/Stirling/Glasgow slip road and then the Stirling/Glasgow/Inverness slip road immediately thereafter. Continue on the road until the Broxden roundabout where you should take the second exit signed for Inverness. Continue on the ring road until the Inveralmond Roundabout, turn a full circle and head back up the ring road and take the first exit signed for Perth. At the mini roundabout turn left.

    Note: When travelling via the Broxden Roundabout, although there is access to the stadium via the A85 signed for Crieff, on matchdays the Police require cars going to the stadium via the ring road NOT to exit onto the A85 but to continue on the ring road until the Inveralmond Roundabout, turn a full circle and head back up the ring road and take the first exit signed for Perth.

    Public Transport

    The train station in Perth is some distance from the stadium - the best part of a 45 minute walk (uphill!). A taxi drive will take ten minutes and cost around £10. A short walk from the train or bus stations will take you to the city centre where there is a major bus interchange in Mill Street. The number 1 and Number 2 buses both depart from here and either will take you to a stop right outside the stadium - the number 2 is the slightly shorter route.

      We caught up with St Johnstone Fans twitter page for a wee chat ahead of tomorrows clash!

      Since the last time both the clubs met, St Johnstone’s form has been a bit start stop. Tommy Wright was touted for the Northern Ireland job and there were even a few whispers regarding him and The Rangers. Do you think this has been a factor or has the team just been stuttering recently?

      Over the past couple of seasons, we've always had a run of atrocious form so on one hand you could say it's just another one of those runs. On the other hand, the run of form this season was far worse and seemed to come around the same time as the speculation of Wright leaving. It's a difficult one but don't think the uncertainty helped at all.

      Talk of people taking over the hot seat of other clubs have simmered down but if Michael O'Neill decides to leave the Northern Irish team, do you think they will be looking at Wright and also, do you think there is a possibility that he may leave?

      I think they'd be mad not to! I cannot fault anything he's done at Saints - consistent top 6 finishes, European Scalps and not least the cup win! However, I do have to wonder if there's a possibility Northern Ireland can aim for a bigger name, O'Neill has definitely made it a far more attractive job.

      I mentioned that the Saints have been stuttering somewhat but the last two game (interview was conducted prior to Wednesdays match) have seen a victory at Ibrox and a draw with Hearts. With sides near the bottom including ourselves picking up points, this must have been a massive relief?

      Some nerves have definitely been settled recently, with the job Steve Clarke is doing so far at Kilmarnock and Motherwell's form before the cup final, I was slightly worried. Home form this season is still a massive concern though - which is unusual. I think we've only won 3 at home this season, including League Cup and Europa League.

      When we spoke to fans Twitter page St Johnstone 1884, they said Michael O'Halloran was the man we should be watching out for? Is this still the player that the Dundee defence should be fearful of?

      If he turns up, absolutely. He was fantastic at the beginning of the season but like much of the team, his performances have been poor since August-time. Stefan Scougall is another to watch out for.

      Speaking of the man himself, is he going back to The Rangers at the end of his loan spell or can you see him extending his stay to the end of the season?

      It'd be nice to see him stay, but I don't think it'll happen. Last couple of weeks I wouldn't say he's looked interested at all. With Rangers changing manager too, I think he'll be given another chance, which is unfortunate. I have all the faith that Tommy Wright will unearth another gem though!

      The January window is right around the corner. What area do you think St Johnstone can improve with a new signing and has there been any rumours of potential targets?

      Getting another striker in was always a priority and we've done so by bringing in David MacMillan from Dundalk. The team is crying out for a bit of pace in midfield so something there wouldn't go amiss - this would also be made worse if Michael O'Halloran is to go back to Rangers. Defence has also been shaky this year, although not sure we'll bring anyone in with the couple of young centre backs we have coming through

      It’s been over three years since we last won on your patch. Will this continue and the home team come out on top or can Dundee ease away from some of the teams at the bottom with a win?

      5-0 win for Saints, easily!

      In all seriousness though, it's hard to say. You guys have had a couple of good results this season such as the Rangers and Partick games. It'd be nice to see the Saints team we all know and love turn up and hopefully pick up all 3 points. As I said, hard to choose. I'll go for a score draw.
