Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Hearts continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels. Austin MacPhee’s troops rolled over St. Mirren 5-2 in their last home game in the national championship, but they were hammered by Kilmarnock (0-3) and Rangers (0-5) in the previous two away games in the league. Hearts are eager to give fans some cheer, and they should take advantage of the fact that Livingston suffered a dip in form.
The Lions failed to find the net in the last three league fixtures, with the team failing to win the previous seven games in the Premier League. Livinston are on a six-game winless run on the road, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Hearts’ party at Tynecastle Park. In each of their last two meetings in the Scottish elite division, the two teams played out a goalless draw, and yet another low-scoring game is on the cards.
Highlighted Player (Conor Washington):
Conor Washington is a Northern Ireland international who began his senior career at St Ives Town. He scored 52 goals in 50 appearances for the club and in 2012 he joined Newport County. He was struggling to adapt to the new surroundings and, as a result, he netted no more than 5 goals in 39 appearances for the Rodney Parade outfit.
In 2014 he signed a deal with Peterborough United and two years later he moved to Queens Park Rangers. He played just ten games for the Hoops in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and he failed to open his goal-scoring account. Conor Washington is a striker who made his Northern Ireland debut on 24 March, 2016 and four days later his scored his first ever goal for the national team, in a 1-0 win over Slovenia at Windsor Park.
The Northern Ireland footballer was eligible to play for Scotland through his mother. He was born in Chantham, Kent, England on 18 May, 1992.
Highlighted Team (Livingston):
Nicknamed the Lions, Livingstone are the Scottish Premier League club founded during the Second World War (1943) under the name of Ferranti Amateurs. Livingston welcome their opponents at Almondvale Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 9,512.
The Lions are known for their amber home kit, with the team wearing white when playing on the travels. Livingston have yet to win the Scottish Premier League title, but they did remarkably well to go all the way in the Scottish League Cup in the 2003/2004 season. The Lions recorded a 2-0 win over Hibernian in the title game played at Hampden Park in Glasgow.
Livingston registered their biggest win against Stranraer (8-0) in August 2012 in the first round of the Scottish League Cup, while their most massive defeat came on December 14, 1974, as they were beaten 8-0 by Hamilton. Legendary Premier League coach Paul Lambert is regarded as one of the club’s most notable players.
