Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Saturday’s football game at Tony Macaroni Arena pits together Livingston and Ross County, the two bottom-table sides. The Lions aim to put an end to their four-game winless run, and a victory over Ross County could see them climb to top six. Defensive duo Ayo Obileye – Tom Parkes remains in the recovery room, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Staggies, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Motherwell, but seeing that midfielder Jack Baldwin is banned for the match, we are going to bet on the home side. All Jordan Tillson, Ben Paton, and Ben Purrington miss out with injuries for the away team. January signing Eamonn Brophy is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors. You should know that Livingston defeated Ross County 2-0 at Global Energy Stadium earlier this term.
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.
