Livingston vs St. Johnstone Prediction & Match Preview

Livingston vs St. Johnstone
Scottish Premiership
Date: Saturday, 9 March 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Tony Macaroni Arena (Livingston).

In the 29th round of Scottish Premiership, Livingston are going to take on St. Johnstone on Saturday afternoon.

Home side is positioned in the bottom half of the table and they are seven points behind the top six. The hosts are pretty secure from dropping into the danger zone and they have already booked their place in the competition for the next season.

Gary Holt’s s ide has been very good in the back, however their forwards should have been more productive as they’ve scored only 28 goals.

Livingston have been playing well at home ground, and after suffering three straight defeats in front of their fans, they managed to get back on winning track.

The visitors are challenging the place in the top six which can secure them five more rounds against the best teams in the league.

However, they are in a very poor streak as Matthew Kennedy and the lads picked up just a point from the last five rounds.

St. Johnstone have troubles of converting their chances into goals although their defence has been fairly solid.

The visitors managed to celebrate seven times at away grounds this season, but in the last four outings, they’ve snatched just a point.

Livingston vs St. Johnstone: Head-to-head

St. Johnstone have been much more successful in their recent head to head clashes as they managed to beat their opponents four times in a row.

Interestingly, in the last 15 encounters, the crowd didn’t see a draw.

Their latest encounters have been low-scoring ones as just one match from the past eight went over 2.5 margin.

Livingston vs St. Johnstone: Prediction

These two teams are not enjoying their games lately and they are both searching for a positive result which can boost their confidence.

St. Johnstone have been in a bigger crisis, but since they are fighting for the place in the top six, the visitors might pick up all three points from this one.

Both sides haven’t been too productive this season as we shouldn’t expect them to shine in front of the oppositions’ goal.

This one should be another low-scoring match between these two teams which shouldn’t go over 2.5 margin.

Livingston vs St. Johnstone: Bet Tips

  • Away win @ 3.10
  • Under 2.5 goals @ 1.50.
