Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Livingston play host to St Johnstone at their Tony Macaroni Arena in what is expected to be an interesting Premiership game. The Lions suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both St. Mirren and Motherwell on the road. Livingston, though, produce much better showings at home than on the travels, and, as a result, the bookies see them as favourites to beat the Saints on home soil. Ayo Obileye and Tom Parkes should miss out with injuries for the home team.
Meanwhile, the visitors do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last four league matches. In their last meeting at Tony Macaroni Arena Livingston defeated St Johnstone thanks to Dylan Bahamboula’s goal, and we predict that history is going to repeat itself. All Nicky Clark, Murray Davidson, and Chris Kane remain on the sidelines with injuries.
