Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Saturday’s football game at McDiarmid Park pits together St. Johnstone and Livingston. St. Johnstone aim to put an end to their four-game winless run in the Premiership, but they will have to do it without midfielder Liam Craig, who was sent off in the goalless draw with St. Mirren in midweek. The Saints, though, are tough to beat at home, and seeing that they suffered only one loss in the previous eight home fixtures, we predict that the hosts are going to grab something from the match.
The Lions, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-2 draw with league leaders Celtic. Livingston were on the verge of beating the Hoops in the midweek clash, but Neil Lennon’s troops eventually scored the equalizer in the stoppage time. Anyhow, St. Johnstone and Livingston seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and we are tempted to put our money on draw.
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.
