🗞️ Team News: Livingston
The Livingston manager David Martindale does not have any fitness concerns at all coming into this match thanks to a fully healthy group ready to go.
We think that Livi Lions will possibly use a 4-2-3-1 system this time, beginning the first half with Shamal George, Nicky Devlin, Luiyi Perez, Tom Parkes, Christian Montano, Sean Kelly, Jamie Brandon, Stephane Omeonga, Stephen Kelly, Joel Nouble and Bruce Anderson.
ℹ️ Team News: Motherwell
Due to a mostly full-strength squad, there is only the sole fitness problem for the Motherwell boss Stuart Kettlewell to be concerned with. Jake Carroll (Knee Surgery) won’t be playing here.
From our viewpoint, The Steelmen might elect for a 3-4-1-2 system, going with Liam Kelly, Paul McGinn, Calum Butcher, Shane Blaney, Stephen O'Donnell, James Furlong, Sean Goss, Dean Cornelius, Blair Spittal, Mikael Mandron and Kevin van Veen.
We’re thinking that Motherwell and Livingston might both not be able to do quite enough to get on the scoresheet here.
At this stage, it appears to have the makings of a possible draw. Therefore, we predict a 0-0 score when all is said and done.
