Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Livingston and St. Mirren go head to head at Tony Macaroni Arena in the Premiership round 8. The Lions continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels. Livingston did well to shock Celtic in their last home game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of St. Mirren. Both Craig Sibbald and Jaze Kabia are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Saints, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-2 win over Aberdeen. St. Mirren are undefeated in the previous four league fixtures, and they are surely capable of matching Livingston at Tony Macaroni Arena. The opposition defenders should have Connor Ronan at bay as he scored a brace at the weekend. Both Charles Dunne and Greg Kiltie miss out with injuries for the visiting team.
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 (St Mirren):
St Mirren are Scottish football club that compete in the Scotland Premier League. Founded in 1877, the Buddies play home games at St Mirren Park. The venue, which was built in 2009, can hold up to 8,000 spectators.

The Scottish club played their first match against Johnstone Britannia on October 6, 1877, winning the game by one goal to nil. St Mirren have a bitter rivalry with Greenock Morton, and there have always been fireworks in clashes between the two clubs.
