Livingston vs St. Johnstone Match Analysis and Prediction

Livingston will hope to close in on the top six when they welcome bottom-of-the-table St Johnstone to the Tony Macaroni Arena on Tuesday evening with kickoff at 10:45 pm.

On Saturday, Livingston twice came from behind to pick up an impressive away victory at the weekend, whilst St. Johnstone had their visit to Aberdeen postponed.

It was a below-par start to the trip to Hibernian on Saturday as Livingston fell behind twice before Ayo Obileye briefly pulled his side level in between.

A much-improved second-half display saw David Martindale’s side come from behind again to seal a 3-2 victory, thanks to a quickfire double from Jack Fitzwater and Alan Forrest before the hour mark. The win was the perfect response to narrowly falling 1-0 at champions Rangers just three days earlier.

Despite remaining in eighth place after Aberdeen’s match was called off and Dundee United lost late at Celtic, the Lions cut the gap to the top six to just two points ahead of the midweek action.

Meanwhile, St Johnstone’s match at Aberdeen on Saturday was postponed due to severe weather conditions, meaning that their manager Callum Davidson can comfort that his players will be more rested than their opponents.

It hasn’t been a positive visit for Saints fans of late. Their team occupies the bottom spot in the Premier League table following a winless spell of twelve matches across all competitions.

Livingston Team News

Taylor Livingston says he will assess the fitness of Jon Nouble ahead of Tuesday’s match, with the first-teamer substituted late on after picking up a knock following his brace of assists for the reserves at the weekend.

St. Johnstone Team News

David Wotherspoon won’t be playing on Tuesday due to a serious knee injury, and fellow midfielder Craig Bryson will also miss the game due to an ankle injury. Shaun Rooney has an ankle problem, but Nadir Ciftci and Michael O’Halloran are not expected to play due to hamstring injuries.
