St. Mirren vs Livingston Prediction

St. Mirren bounced back to winning ways last week, by posting a 1-0 victory over Hamilton on the road. The hosts were a threat throughout that clash, and managed sixteen shots at goal, as opposed to their counterparts who took no more than four.

With just four wins in their campaign so far though, the home side are currently sitting ninth on the ladder, four points behind Livingston.

Meanwhile, the visitors are unbeaten in their past three games on the trot. Their last clash at home saw them slot three unanswered goals past Kilmarnock, while on the road, they shared the spoils with Hearts in a 1-1 draw.

Be that as it may, it is certainly worth mentioning that Livingston have not looked sharp in their outings so far. The visitors have just one win to boast of from their last nine away games and have garnered just six points from a possible twenty-seven.

In sharp contrast, St Mirren have admitted defeat just twice in their previous six fixtures on home soil. Taking into account that they also secured the bragging rights in their last clash with this foe here, Livingston’s chances of a win are certainly looking bleak.

However, the visitors have bagged a share of the spoils in half of their previous four outings in the league. Considering that the hosts have also been forced to settle for just a point in two of their last eight clashes here, the safest punt would have to be a double chance in this one.

Furthermore, St. Mirren have found the back of the net just five times from their last seven games at home. On the other hand, Livingston have not been lively in the final third either, and have scored just twice in their last three outings.

Given that all of their previous three h2h meetings here have also been low scoring affairs, expect more of the same when the two sides lock horns this weekend.
