Livingston Preview – Will Livi rediscover their winning form after five defeats in their last six matches?

It as an extended honeymoon period when David Martindale took over a Livingston head coach earlier in the season but the harsh reality of management is now hitting home. Martindale had led Livi to a 14 match unbeaten run where they won 11 of them. There was talk of a challenging for third place and also put them on to the cusp of their first trophy since 2004.

Unfortunately that has been unsustainable. Livi are now without a win in their last six games, losing five of them and one of those was defeat at the hands of St Johnstone in the League Cup final.


Our betting prediction:
Hamilton draw no bet

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Friday 12 March)
Still though, bar an extremely unlikely set of results before the split, Livingston look set for a second top half finish in three seasons. For a club of their resources it’s a great achievement. Martindale will be determined to finish as high as possible, however, which means getting back to winning ways – starting this weekend.
Livingston coming into this game having taken just one point from their last three home games and scoring just one in that run. They’ll be looking to get back to basics by keeping clean sheets and making themselves more difficult to beat at their own stadium.

Hamilton Preview – Are Hibs set to resume normal service in their race for third after consecutive defeats?

It’s about this time of year Hamilton normally perform their great escape and they appear to be getting ahead of steam once again. Brice Rice has put his faith in the youngsters and it is paying off just now. Hamilton have moved themselves off bottom spot after losing just one of their last six. They may have won only one in that period but it shows you the importance of draws when you are in a relegation fight.

Hamilton seem to have taken great confidence from their draw with Rangers – leading them to picking up points against St Mirren, St Johnstone and Aberdeen, as well as an excellent win in the Lanarkshire derby away to Motherwell.

This represents Hamilton’s game in hand over bottom club Kilmarnock and a chance for them to move four points clear. With just six games to go after this one, that would be a significant advantage. Especially considering both team’s respective form.

St Johnstone are the only team currently in the bottom six who have scored more goals on their travels than Hamilton which indicates the sort of threat they carry when playing away from home.

Livingston vs Hamilton Betting Advice

A point would guarantee Livingston a place in the top six but Martindale and his players will be looking on this as an opportunity to get back to winning was. Hamilton will prove to be stubborn opposition however and won on their last visit to the Tony Macaroni stadium back in September. Livi returned the favour by thrashing Accies 3-0 in their most recent contest.
