- haven't lost in the league to Aberdeen in their last 2 games.
- are unbeaten in their last 2 home league matches.
Since tasting defeat last time out to Dundee United in Scottish Cup action, Aberdeen will be aiming to make amends here.
Marc McNulty (18', 54') and Ryan Edwards (37') scored for Dundee United.
In the course of their six previous matches, Stephen Glass's Aberdeen have slotted home 5 times thus earning them a goals scored per game average of 0.83.

Team News: Livingston
Livingston manager David Martindale has a full complement, with no fitness worries to speak of coming into this clash thanks to a fully injury-free group available to select from.
Team News: Aberdeen
Aberdeen boss Stephen Glass has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Michael Devlin (Ankle Surgery), Joe Lewis (Bruised Rib) and Ryan Hedges (Muscle Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
Our feeling is that Aberdeen and Livingston are probably both going to find scoring goals difficult here.
That’s why we have predicted a very close game with a 0-0 score after 90 minutes.
