Livingston vs Hamilton
2018/19 Scottish Premiership
Date: Saturday, 15th September 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Almondvale Stadium (Livingston).
New side Livingston will play host to Hamilton on Saturday afternoon with hope of a 3rd consecutive Premiership win.
Livi started the campaign with replacement of managers as David Hopkins left for Bradford City in the summer after leading them to two promotions in 2 years. Former Rangers player Kenny Miller took the ship as a player manager but didn’t last long as Miller wanted to continue playing while the board wanted him to focus as a manager.
Gary Holt who has a little more experience in managerial duty than Miller took over but he is still the least experienced manager in the league. Holt started with a 2-0 win over and 2-1 win over fellow promoted side St Mirren and also Hibernian. They now have a tough game against Hamilton who have survived relegation fir 5 years.
Hamilton were the first to taste Hearts wrath in their first game of the season as they were beaten 4-1. They managed to get a win in the next game against their local rivals Motherwell which so vital for them.
The Accies lost closely to Celtic as the game ended 1-0 and went on to lose 2-1 to St Johnstone despite having good chances in first half. They now hope to get back to winning ways as they face new sides Livingston.
Livingston vs Hamilton: Head to Head
Hamilton have been the better side in their last 23 meetings, winning 11 of the games which includes 4 of the last 8 meetings.
Livingston vs Hamilton: Prediction
Hamilton are unbeaten against Livingston in their last 9 games but we still don’t see them as favorites in this game. Livingston should be bold and confident with their recent wins and new manager and we are backing them to win this one.
Looking at the goal market, only q of their last 5 meetings have recorded more than a goal. We are expecting a low scoring affair in this game, not more than 2 match goals.
