Livingston losing run to continue

There is no hiding that the start of the campaign was tough for St Johnstone. They do appear to be turning a corner now though and a home match against Livingston is the perfect fixture to chalk another three points onto their tally. St Johnstone have taken nine points from the last 15 available with the two defeats coming against two of the best sides in the division in Rangers and Hearts. By contrast, Livingston look like they could lose to anyone. They’ve managed just one win in 10 games and have lost three on the spin heading into this one. Throw on top of those stats that they’ve not beaten St Johnstone in three attempts and our tip should be golden.

This match will not be a classic

So, we now know that St Johnstone and Livingston have somewhat contrasting form. There is one area where they measure up well together; that’s in regards to total goals. St Johnstone have seen three of their last five games come in under the all important cut off whilst Livingston have only gone over 2.5 once in five matches. Both sides are averaging well south of 2.5 across the season so far as well; Livingston are seeing 2.0 goals per game with St Johnstone’s average even lower at 1.5.

St Johnstone will win and keep it clean

Our final tip is that St Johnstone will not only win the match but that they will do so whilst recording a shutout. We’ve already explained why we fancy St Johnstone to win but there is method to our ‘to nil’ prediction as well. St Johnstone have won three of their last four games, two of them were won to nil. Livingston have lost three consecutive games, they haven’t scored in any and, in fact, they’ve notched just one goal in five games.

St Johnstone vs Livingston: Team news

St Johnstone

St Johnstone started the season off in really poor shape. They’ve started to click in the last few weeks though and will be confident of getting three more points on the board here. In terms of team news Liam Gordon remains out injured but Murray Davidson might come back into contention.

Livingston

Like St Johnstone, Livingston had a poor start to the campaign too. There is a key difference though, Livingston look like their start will spread and become a bad season with relegation very much on the cards. The fact of the matter is they rely too heavily on Bruce Anderson and he doesn’t have what it takes to score enough goals to win games week in week out.
