Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
St Johnstone and Livingston, the two teams who are almost level on points in the Premiership standings, face each other at McDiarmid Park in what is expected to be a close encounter. The Saints have been in a fine form of late. Following a League Cup win over Motherwell, Callum Davidson’s troops did well to hold Celtic to a draw at Celtic park at the weekend. The hosts are high on confidence ahead of Saturday’s clash, but keep in mind that winger Michael O’Halloran suffered a serious injury at the weekend.
The Lions, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Dundee United. As previously mentioned, a close game is on the horizon at McDiarmid Park, and we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. It has to be noted that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their last three meetings in the Scotland Premier League.
Highlighted Player (Jason Kerr):
Jason Kerr is a professional footballer who plays for St Johnstone as a defender. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, on February 6, 1997, Jason Kerr is a product of the St Johnstone football academy. He started his senior career in 2014, and after ending his loan spells with East Fife and Queen of the South, he returned to the McDiarmid Park outfit in 2018.
He made his debut with the Saints in the Scottish Cup game against Albion Rovers on January 29, 2019. Jason Kerr has six caps with the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the senior team.
He scored his first goal for St Johnstone in a 4-1 defeat to Rangers on February 27, 2018. His primary position on the field is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing good displays as a central midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 15 shirt at St Johnstone.
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.
