Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Hamilton and Livingston go head to head at Hope CBD Stadium in the Scotland Premiership round 19. Hamilton head into the match with a severely-weakened squad, with the likes of Smith, Ogboe, Collar, Templeton, and Want missing the game through injuries. Therefore, the hosts are seen as underdogs in the midweek clash. Livingston, on the other hand, have been producing splendid displays in all competitions of late.
The Lions are on a four-game winning run ahead of the trip to Hamilton, and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration. In their last meeting at Hope CBD Stadium Livingston recorded a 2-1 win over Hamilton, and the history is likely to repeat itself. The likes of Jacobs and Lithgow are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team ahead of Wednesday’s match.
