Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Saturday’s football match at Tony Macaroni Arena pits together Livingston and Kilmarnock, the two teams who are level on points in the Premiership standings ahead of Matchday 11. Livingston totally outplayed Dundee United before the international break, and, no doubt, they are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Kilmarnock. The Lions are eyeing their third home win of the season, and given their attacking potential, we are positive that they are going to find the net in Saturday’s clash.
The Killie, on the other hand, suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Falkirk in the League Cup at the weekend. Kilmarnock, though, are eyeing their third consecutive win in the Scottish top flight, and seeing that Livingston failed to keep a clean sheet in the previous three league fixtures, both teams to score betting option should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Craig Sibbald):
Craig Sibbald is a Scottish footballer who plays for Livingston as a midfielder. Sibbald started his senior career at Falkirk, and after scoring 30 goals in 214 appearances for the Bairns, he signed a two-year contract with Livingston in the summer of 2018.
Craig Sibbald made his Scotland Premier League debut on September 30, 2018, in a 1-0 loss to Rangers. Four months later, he scored his first goal in the Scottish top flight, finding the net in a 3-1 win over St Mirren. Craig Sibbald has three caps with the Scotland U16 team while making two appearances for the Scotland U17 side. He wears the number 10 shirt at Livingston, and his preferred foot is left.
Sibbald’s main position is attacking midfield, but he is used as a left winger as well. The Scottish footballer has a contract with Livingston until July 1, 2018. In August 2011, he was named the Scottish Football League Young Player of the Month.
Highlighted Team (Kilmarnock):
Founded on January 5, 1869, Kilmarnock are the oldest professional club in Scotland. The Killie welcome their opponents at Rugby Park, the stadium with the artificial turf. The venue, which was opened back in August 1899, can hold up to 17,889 people.
Kilmarnock won their first and only Scotland Premier League trophy in the 1964/65 season despite being level on points with Hearts at the end of the season. Fellow Ayrshire club Ayr United are considered the Killie’s bitterest rivals. The two teams have been facing each other in the Ayrshire derby since September 1910.
Dark blue is the dominant colour of the club’s home kit, while Kilmarnock footballers wear yellow and blues kit when playing on the travels. The Killie recorded their biggest win back in 1896, with the team beating Saltcoats Victoria 13-2 in the second round of the Scottish Qualifying Cup. The club suffered their biggest defeat in August 1938 as they were hammered by Celtic 9-1 in the Scottish League Division.
