Livingston vs St. Mirren Prediction

Livington did suffer back-to-back losses in their recent fixtures. First, they lost to Ross County in their previous league encounter with a 2-0 scoreline. Later, in their prior overall clash in the Scottish Cup, the Lions lost to Inverness with a 1-0 score on the board. Both the losses were on the road and hence, the host will be glad to return home to play the Saints.

St. Mirren has been unbeaten in their last four matches all ending in a draw. They have only marked two wins in their recent ten overall fixtures. Significantly, they have also lost only two matches in the same period and that too against Celtic and Rangers. Their previous two encounters ended in the same 1-1 draw at home against Hamilton in Premiership and Motherwell in Scottish Cup.

Based on their recent form in the table, the hosting contingent has more chances to create goals in the game. For the punters, Livingston will be the best choice for being the favorites to win in the clash. Another factor that backs up the Lions is their home ground advantage.

The host is on a five-game winning streak at home in the league. Also, they have lost only two of their 12 home matches so far in the campaign. In addition to that, the Lions will be facing one of the weakest teams on the road in Premiership this season.

St. Mirren has won only one of their 12 away fixtures until now in the campaign. They are facing problems at the back which is evident from the 20 goals conceded in 12 trips. Also, the Saints are winless in their last three away clashes.

As such, Livingston has more chance of winning the game with their home ground advantage. Also, we can expect the total score to be over 1.5 goals in the match.
