📏 Form Guide

Motherwell DLWDLL

Motherwell will be wanting a better result here after the 0-1 Premiership losing effort in their last game against Dundee United.

In that game, Motherwell managed 60% possession and 17 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. On the other side, Dundee United had 11 attempts on goal with 3 on target. Mark Reynolds (52') scored for Dundee United.

It’s been a rare occasion in recent times where Motherwell have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that The Steelmen have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 6 goals along the way. Let’s see if that trend can be sustained here.

Livingston LDDLLL 📉

Since a loss in their previous game against Hibernian in Premiership competition, Livingston and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.

In that match, Livingston had 51% possession and 9 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. The only player to score for Livingston was Lyndon Dykes (60'). Hibernian got 17 shots on goal with 7 of them on target. Kevin Nisbet (24', 37', 88') and Christian Doidge (41') scored for Hibernian.

The forward players for Livingston have failed to get amongst the goals over their last six encounters, contributing the unsatisfactory return of only 4. In those fixtures, Livi Lions have also seen the overall goal tally against them equal 10.

Taking a look at their past results, Livingston:

  • have not registered a win against Motherwell when having played them away from home in the previous 9 matches in the league. Very poor away form.
  • are without an away win for the past 5 matches in the league.

↔️ Head to head

Looking over their prior head to head meetings going back to 01/12/2018 shows us that Motherwell have won 3 of them & Livingston 2, with the tally of drawn games being 1.

In all, 14 goals were scored between the two sides in these games, with 8 of them from The Steelmen and 6 being from Livi Lions. That is an average goals per game value of 2.33.

The last league fixture between these clubs was Premiership match day 24 on 01/02/2020 which ended up with the score at Livingston 1-0 Motherwell.

The referee was John Beaton.

📰 Team News: Motherwell

Jake Carroll (Achilles tendon rupture), Liam Donnelly (Knee Injury) and Charles Dunne (Groin Surgery) aren’t available for Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson.

In all likelihood, The Steelmen could employ a 4-4-2 system, utilising Trevor Carson, Liam Grimshaw, Bevis Mugabi, Ricki Lamie, Declan Gallagher, Jake Hastie, Allan Campbell, Mark O'Hara, David Turnbull, Chris Long and Sherwin Seedorf.

📰 Team News: Livingston

Thanks to a largely full-strength squad, there’s only a single fitness worry for the Livingston gaffer Gary Holt to be concerned about. Alan Lithgow (Hip Injury) won’t be in action.

We’re of the thinking that Livi Lions seem most likely to make use of a 3-4-2-1 lineup, starting the game with Robby McCrorie, Jack Fitzwater, Jon Guthrie, Ciaron Brown, Nicky Devlin, Marvin Bartley, Craig Sibbald, Efe Ambrose, Scott Pittman, Scott Robinson and Lyndon Dykes.

✨ Prediction

We envisage that Livingston are capable enough to put a goal past this Motherwell team, however it might not quite be enough to prevent defeat.

We’re expecting a 2-1 victory for Motherwell at the end of the match. Definitely a tough call.
