Livingston Prediction

Livingston are without a win from their last seven matches in the Scottish Premiership following a miserable run of four defeats being the particular lowlight during this period with defeats to Aberdeen, St Johnstone, Rangers and Motherwell along with draws against Hibernian, Dundee and Hearts.

Nevertheless, Livingston still possess a decent looking home record which stands at 7-2-3 19/8 which has been affected by recent visits from 3rd placed Aberdeen and 2nd placed Rangers, but the hosts will fancy their chances of returning to winning ways when they welcome Dundee to home soil today.

Livingston have also held the upper hand over Dundee in the top flight at home having won their last three encounters over The Dees with their most recent encounter resulting in a resounding 4-0 win back in October.

Forwards Hardie (5 goals) and Pittman (3 goals) look the most likely for the hosts here this afternoon.

 

Key-Facts – Livingston v Dundee

  • Livingston possess the best home record in the bottom half of the SPL
  • Livingston thrashed Dundee 4-0 in their last home encounter
  • Dundee have won just 1 of their last 10 matches in the SPL

 

Dundee Prediction

Dundee sit second from bottom in the Scottish Premiership and three points above St Mirren but like the bottom club, Dundee can only hope they can start picking up points in the second phase of the Scottish domestic season when they split into the two divisions of six teams.

Dundee have picked up points in recent weeks with back-to-back draws against Hamilton Academical and Kilmarnock, but the visitors have picked up just the one win from their last 10 matches overall in the Scottish top flight, that being a surprise 2-1 win away at 5th placed Hearts last month.

That win at Hearts was one of only victories on their travels to date within an overall poor away record of 2-2-8 10/27 and along with Hamilton Academical, Dundee have the joint second worst defensive record in the division, with only bottom club St Mirren being worse.

In addition, the visitors have kept just one clean sheet on the road so far this season which was in a 2-0 win away at Hamilton Academical, but they’ll do well to get anything out of Livingston here today I fancy.

Betting Tips Verdict

Although Livingston have recently lost two home matches on the trot, these were against teams sitting in the top three of the division, but the visit from Dundee today should see the hosts returning to winning ways in this clash.
