St Johnstone Prediction

St Johnstone currently occupy the last remaining spot in the Championship Round and hold a four point cushion over their visitors Livingston who sit in 7th place, so the hosts will be keen to avoid defeat at their McDiarmid Park at the very least.

St Johnstone have won their last two Premiership matches with back-to-back victories away from home at St Mirren and Dundee, winning 1-0 and 2-0 respectively, so they’ll be hopeful of making it three wins on the trot on home turf on Wednesday night.

However, The Saints have lost their last two home matches on the bounce with losses to Motherwell and Rangers as well as now going four matches without a win at home as they’ve been held to 0-0 and 2-2 draws by Kilmarnock and Hearts respectively.

St Johnstone’s home record stands at 3-4-3 13/14 but most of their success this season has actually been on their travels where they’ve recorded 7 of their 10 wins to date this season.


Key-Facts – St Johnstone v Livingston

  • 7 of St Johnstone’s 10 wins this season have come away from home
  • Livingston are unbeaten in their last 2 away matches
  • St Johnstone usually perform better on the road


Livingston Prediction

Livingston occupy 7th place in the Premiership and the opposite could be said of the visitors as 7 of their 8 league wins this season have been achieved at their Tony Macaroni Arena where they’ve lost just twice all season so far.

The visitors have won just once in their last five matches overall which was a crushing 5-0 victory over Hearts but they’ve been unable to replicate their form and results at home into points on their travels this term as they hold a fairly ordinary looking away record of 1-4-5 7/14.

However, for this tip to win we only need Livingston to avoid defeat here as a draw will do us nicely. The visitors have drawn at Hearts, Motherwell, Hibernian and Dundee and so a point against a team that usually performs better away from home than at McDiarmid Park may well not be beyond them here.

Betting Tips Verdict

With St Johnstone’s tentative record at home, Livingston could nick a point here.
