Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Motherwell and Livingston take on each other at Fir Park in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Saturday’s program. The Well quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to St Johnstone, with the team beating Aberdeen on the road on Matchday 3. Stevie Hammell’s men have regained a much-needed confidence, and it is no wonder the odds for home win have been dropping.
Jake Carroll is out for the rest of the season, while fellow defender Nathan McGinley has yet to recover from his injury. The Lions, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Dundee United and Hibernian, and seeing that they will go for a win in Saturday’s clash as well, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. Both Morgan Boyes and Tom Parkes are out of contention with injuries for the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Liam Kelly):
Born in Newport Pagnell, England Liam Kelly is a right-footed midfielder who plays for Coventry City in the League One. Kelly is a product of Milton Keynes Dons football school, but he did not play for the club at senior level. The English footballer started his senior career at Scottish club Kilmarnock, but after making 100 appearances in the league for the Killie, he moved to England, signing a three-and-a-half-year deal with Bristol City.
The English footballer played for the likes of Oldaham Athletic and Leyton Orient as well before joining Coventry City in the summer of 2017. His main position is central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both defensive and right midfielder as well.
His preferred foot is right. He made his league debut with Coventry City on August 5, 2017 in a 3-0 win over Notts County, while scoring his first goal for the club in a 3-1 win over Stevenage in April, 2018.
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.
