Livingston Preview – Can Livingston win back-to-back?

Wednesday night’s hosts, Livingston, maintained their challenge for a top six finish and a place in the Championship Round of the Scottish Premiership with a 2-0 home win against Hibernian last time out, and they’ll no doubt be keen to replicate that result against St Johnstone here.

The home side have lost just once in their last 7 matches overall in the Scottish top flight which came in the shape of a 2-1 defeat away at 4th placed Aberdeen, but recent wins against Kilmarnock 3-0, Ross County 4-0 and the aforementioned 2-0 victory over Hibs have kept Livingston on track.

All three of the above wins were registered at their Tony Macaroni Arena where the hosts possess a reasonable looking record of 5-3-2 13/5 with their standout success being a 2-0 win against Premiership leaders, Celtic, back in early October.

In addition, Livingston possess the joint best defensive record at home in the division (along with Rangers), keeping 7 clean sheets in their 10 home matches to date.

St Johnstone Preview – Can St Johnstone close the gap on the top six?

The visitors currently sit in 9th place and find themselves 5 points adrift of the top six of the Scottish top flight but recent results suggest that St Johnstone are starting to head in the right direction under manager, Tommy Wright.

St Johnstone bring an encouraging 5-match sequence without defeat in the Premiership into this Wednesday night clash against Livingston, having recorded wins against Hearts and Hamilton Academicals, both of which were achieved away from home.

The visitors have also picked up points in draws with Kilmarnock, St Mirren and Ross County in their bid to reduce the 5-point deficit on the top six and make a late challenge for a spot in the Championship Round when the division splits into two.

St Johnstone have won their last two away matches on the trot but the last time they visited Livingston, the visitors suffered a heavy 3-1 defeat back in March of last year.
