Our predictions, user poll and statistics for St Mirren v Livingston can be found here (plus the best game odds).
St Mirren will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following a 2-0 Premiership success over Dundee.
In that match, St Mirren managed 46% possession and 14 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. For St Mirren, the goalscorers were Alex Greive (4') and Curtis Main (55'). For their opponents, Dundee had 12 attempts at goal with 1 on target.
Stephen Robinson's St Mirren have seen rewards for their attempts on goal a sum total of 6 times in their preceding half-dozen outings. The corresponding number of goals that have been scored against them in those fixtures is 11.
Looking at the pre-match facts, St Mirren:
- have not been beaten in the league by Livingston in their last 6 matches.
- have not won against Livingston in their previous 2 matches in the league.
Last time out, Livingston drew 1-1 in the Premiership match with St Johnstone.

The stats tell the story, and Livingston have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 7 goals in total. At the back, Livingston have seen their frailties exposed. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to be sustained here, of course.
Their previous form shows that Livingston:
- are winless against St Mirren when they have played them away from home in the previous 5 matches in the league. Not good.
- remain unbeaten by St Mirren when having played them away from home in the previous 2 league games.

Team News: St Mirren
The St Mirren manager Stephen Robinson will be grateful to have no fitness concerns to speak of before this clash owing to a fully healthy group to choose from.
Team News: Livingston
Livingston manager David Martindale has a number of players out of action. Daniel Barden (Testicular Cancer) and Tom Parkes (Knee Injury) are not ready for selection.
Our feeling is that Livingston and St Mirren could both end up scoring in a what should be a good tussle with little between the two teams.
It appears that a draw might be on the cards. That’s why we have predicted a score draw when the referee blows the full-time whistle.
