Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Saturday’s Premiership game at the Simple Digital Arena pits together St. Mirren and Livingston. The Saints are eager to secure a top-six finish, but they will have to be at their sharpest in the remainder of the season if they are to meet the goal. Eamonn Brophy remains in the recovery room for the hosts, but Jamie McGrath should recover in time to face the Lions.
Livingston, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to St. Johnstone and Dundee United. The Lions have been producing fine displays on the travels this term, and seeing that they are likely to go for a win in Saturday’s clash as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Defender Jack Fitzwater is banned for the visitors as he was sent off in the 3-0 loss to Dundee United.
Highlighted Player (Marcus Fraser):
Marcus Fraser is a Scottish footballer who plays for Ross County as a defender. Fraser is a product of Celtic football school, but he made no more than one appearance for the Hoops in the Scottish Premier League. He played his only game for the Scottish giants in a 3-1 win at Inverness on February 9, 2013.
After ending his loan spell with Cowdenbeath, Marcus Fraser signed a deal with Ross County in 2015. Over the years, the defender has established himself as a first-team regular with the Staggies, making 26 appearances in the Scottish top flight last term.
Speaking of his international career, Fraser has five caps for the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. His main position on the field is a right-back, but he is capable of producing good performances as a centre-back as well. Marcus Fraser was born in Bishopbriggs, Scotland, on June 23, 1994.
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.
