Livingston will be aiming for their first point of the season when they play host to Kilmarnock at Tony Macaroni Arena.

Livingston are back to Scottish Premier League after over 10 years of absence. They got promoted through the Championship playoffs as they finished 2nd in the league.

Livi were welcomed back to the league with a fixture against 7 straight title winners Celtic. They were out played in the game losing 3-1 and having only 1 shot on target.

Livingston have been great from their pre-season and the last week defeat is the first defeat under their manager Kenny Miller. We can assume that things are going pretty well with the team.

Meanwhile, Kilmarnock are hoping to have a great season just like they did last term. They finished 5th above Hearts and that’s a good season per say.

They have been good so far, winning the league Cup group qualification and undefeated too. They defeated St Johnstone 2-0 in the opening game where they had 19 shots and 1 of them on target. They will be hoping to keep on with this string form and grab more possible points.
