Date: Saturday, 12 November 2022
Kick-off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Tynecastle Park.

Following a 3-1 defeat in the last group stage game in the Conference League, Robbie Neilson and his team made amends by defeating Motherwell last time. Now they will prepare for an important fixture as they will host rivals Livingston at Tynecastle Park.

In the game against Motherwell, Andy Halliday scored a brace followed by Lawrence Shankland’s winning goal in the 89th minute of the game. This victory helped the team reach the fifth position on the table.

At the same time, Livingston got all three points against Aberdeen in a 2-1 victory. It was Jack Fitzwater who scored an early goal in that game. They have only lost once in their last five outings.

It is worth knowing that they are the only team in the top four to have a negative goal difference. Moreover, both teams are separated by just two points on the table. This clearly shows the competitiveness in the Premiership this season.

Livingston’s away form is looking fragile as they have lost three of their last five away games.
