Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
After failing to spoil Celtic’s party at Celtic Park, Aberdeen will be aiming to regain their spot in top six when they face Livingston on Saturday afternoon. The Dons did well to beat Motherwell 3-1 in their last home fixture, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Livingston, but Barry Robson’s men will have to prove their worth on the field. Defender Hayden Coulson is pushing for a start, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
Livingston, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Rangers, and seeing that they were hammered by Aberdeen (0-5) in their last encounter at Pittodrie Stadium, home win should be considered. As for the away team, midfielder Stephane Omeonga is banned for the match, while defender Tom Parkes misses out with a knee injury.
Highlighted Team (Aberdeen):
