Livingston vs St Johnstone – After losing to Motherwell 3-0 in the previous Premiership encounter, Livingston will be hoping for a better outcome here.

Livingston had 53% of the possession in that game and made 11 attempts on goal, scoring on two of them. Six of Motherwell’s 11 shots on goal were on target.

Motherwell received goals from Kevin van Veen (9′, 33′) and Max Johnston (34′). In more recent games, Livingston hasn’t really had very strong offensive numbers.

Over their last six games, they’ve only scored 4 goals against other teams. Additionally, Livingston has had 13 goals scored against them in those contests. If that tendency can be maintained in this game, it will be intriguing to see.

Looking at their historical results, Livingston hasn’t dropped a league match against St Johnstone in their last 3 games. In their last two league home games, they have gone undefeated.

St Johnstone and their traveling supporters will be looking for a better outcome in this one after a losing effort in their most recent match against Ross County in Premiership action.

St Johnstone enjoyed a 55% possession advantage in that game and 2 of its 15 efforts on goal were successful. Four of the 13 shots on goal by Ross County were on target. Ross County scored goals through Simon Murray (45′) and David Cancola (49′).

The numbers don’t lie, as St Johnstone has allowed opponents to score in six of their last six games, resulting in nine goals altogether. St. Johnstone has to work on certain defensive flaws.

According to the form guide going into this game, St Johnstone has not defeated Livingston when they have faced each other away from home in the previous two league games. In their previous two league games, they have failed to pick up a victory away from home.

Out of a full roster of players, only one player’s fitness is a cause for concern for Livingston manager David Martindale. Tom Parkes is sidelined due to a knee injury.

With Shamal George, Nicky Devlin, Luiyi de Lucas, Jack Fitzwater, Steven Bradley, James Penrice, Stephen Kelly, Stephane Omeonga, Jason Holt, Kurtis Guthrie, and Joel Nouble, we believe Livi Lions will play the game in a 5-3-2 shape.

The manager of St Johnstone, Callum Davidson, has no fitness concerns at all going into this game with a fully healthy squad prepared to go.

Remi Matthews, Ryan McGowan, Liam Gordon, James Brown, Drey Wright, Melker Hallberg, David Wotherspoon, Daniel Phillips, Adam Montgomery, Stevie May, and Zak Rudden are possible starters for The Saints in a 3-5-2 formation.

Although we don’t think it will be as many as Livingston will allow, we think St Johnstone has what it takes to get through the Livingston defense.
