Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Ross County and Livingston face each other at Global Energy Stadium in what is expected to be a close Premiership encounter. The Staggies are stuck at the bottom with 16 points in their pocket, and seeing that they were beaten by both St Johnstone and Rangers in the previous two home matches, we are not tempted to put our money on Malky Mackay’s troops. The good news for the hosts is that talented forward Owura Edwards is back from suspension, while Ben Purrington remains in the recovery room.
The Lions, on the other hand, aim to stay in top six in the standings. Livingston are eyeing their first league win since November 8, 2022, and seeing that they will go for a win as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. As for the away side, Jason Holt misses out through suspension, while both Jamie Brandon and Joel Nouble are sidelined with injuries.
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.
