Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
St. Johnstone play host to Livingston at their McDiarmid Park in the Scotland Premiership round 9. The Saints have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating both Aberdeen and Dundee, while losing to Rangers and Hibernian. St. Johnstone aim to regain their spot in top six, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash. Murray Davidson is a major doubt, while both James Brown and Liam Gordon remain in the recovery roon.
The Lions, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing each of their previous three league fixtures. Livingston have been struggling in front of goal of late, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling St. Johnstone’s party at McDiarmid Park. All Adam Lewis, Craig Sibbald, and Jaze Kabia are out of contention through injuries.
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.
