Head to head

Livingston vs St Johnstone betting tips for the Scottish Premiership match scheduled for a 19:45 kick-off on Wednesday 22nd January 2020. Read the Livingston vs St Johnstone match preview and predictions below.

Livingston host St Johnstone Almondvale Stadium on Wednesday evening coming off a 3-1 Scottish Cup win against league one side Raith. Livingston currently sit 5th in the league and head into this match in reasonable form having picked up 10 points from a possible 15 over their last 5 games. The home side have also managed to find the net 13 times in those games proving they aren’t short of firepower up front.

The same can’t be said for St Johnstone who have only scored 16 goals all season, averaging just 0.84 goals per game. Those stats get worse when you look at the away for of the visitors where they have an average of just 0.77 goals per game and have picked up just 10 points from a possible 27 on the road.

Livingston Team News 

Goalkeeper Ross Stewart (Hamstring) and defenders Alan Lithgow (Illness) and Cécé Pepe (Calf) are all unavailable for Wednesday’s match.

Livingston vs St Johnstone Prediction

Both sides come into this match is relatively good form. St Johnstone have picked up back to back wins on the road with two 1-0 wins against Hamilton and Hearts but the worry is that those were the only two victories away from home in their last 12 matches. Livingston have been scoring for fun on home turf recently and have bagged 14 goals in their last 6 matches in all competitions which isn’t a good sign for the visitors who have conceded an average of 2 goals per game away from home this term.

Despite St Johnstone picking up important wins on the road in their last two matches, we feel if Livingston find the net more than once, the visitors won’t have enough firepower to get back into the game.

We’re backing a home win on Wednesday evening with a 2-0 score.
