Team News: Livingston
Livingston boss David Martindale has no fitness worries at all ahead of this clash owing to a completely healthy squad available to select from.
Team News: Aberdeen
Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Tomas Cerny (Surgery) and Michael Devlin (Ankle Surgery) will miss out on this game.
In our opinion, Aberdeen and Livingston might both not be able to do quite enough to get on the scoresheet here.
Little in this one, and it’s almost too close to call. We’re therefore expecting a very competitive game with a 0-0 draw when all is said and done.
