Dundee will be hoping to bounce back here following the 1-0 Premiership losing effort in their last game against Motherwell.
In that match, Dundee managed 60% possession and 14 shots on goal with 1 of them on target. Motherwell got 4 shots at goal with 3 on target. Tony Watt (34') scored for Motherwell.
Matches involving Dundee have usually been exciting affairs of late with high scoring being a real hallmark. Over their past half dozen clashes, the sum of 23 goals have flown in for both sides combined (at an average of 3.83 goals per game) with 10 of those accredited to Dundee. Nonetheless, it remains to be seen whether that pattern shall be maintained here in this game.
Their prior results show that Dundee:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Livingston in their last 3 games.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 5 home league matches.
- are without a win at home for the past 2 league games.
Since being beaten in their last game against Hibernian in Premiership competition, Livingston and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that game, Livingston had 41% possession and 7 shots at goal with 1 on target. Hibernian had 14 shots at goal with 3 on target. Kevin Nisbet (51') and Martin Boyle (89') scored for Hibernian.
Looking at their form, and Livingston have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 11 goals in all. In defence, Livingston have not been doing too well.
Their past results show that Livingston:
- remain unbeaten by Dundee when they've played them away from home in the last 2 matches in the league.
- are without an away win for the past 8 matches in the league. Their travelling support will be needed here, for sure.

Team News: Dundee
Logan Chalmers (Knee Injury), Calum Butcher (Knee Injury) and Mark Connolly (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be available for Dundee boss James McPake.
Team News: Livingston
Livingston manager David Martindale has some current player fitness concerns. Jaze Kabia (Knee Injury) and Jack McMillan (Knee Injury) will not be playing here.
We’re thinking that Livingston will really need to work well to be putting a goal past this Dundee side who we reckon will score at least once to put them ahead.
Our tip is therefore for a very even match with a 1-0 win for Dundee when all is said and done.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
