Livingston form and stats

The home fans haven’t been spoiled with victories in the Premiership this season. Livingston have only managed 2 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses from their games here at Tony Macaroni Arena.

Livingston lost their last game at Motherwell (placed 4th) after a 1-2 scoreline. Longridge was "man of the match" with a rating of 7.0 out of 10. The defender Longridge won 9 of 15 duels.

Before that, Livingston drew at home versus Ross County.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Livingston have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found seven games) they have won three times, drawn zero and lost four.

The match schedule is unforgiving for Livingston as they have a new game in only four days, a Scottish Cup match thankfully also at home. Ross County are visiting.

Livingston have scored 7 league goals here from 9 matches, not a lot. On the other hand, Livingston have conceded 11 goals.

Dundee form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Dundee so far with only 4 points returning home. The records show 1-1-8 (win-draw-lose). With the Dundee losing streak of five defeats in a row, regardless of arena, optimism is low and sinking.

Two away games in a row for Dundee, who will hope to get a better result in this one after losing 1-2 versus Aberdeen in the Premiership. Attacker Griffiths got a player rating of 7.33 in the game. "Man of the match" Griffiths scored one goal.

A 0-1 loss hosting Hearts before that.

Dundee are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is two wins, one draw and two defeats. From a total of five matches.

The visitors will be packing their bags again in only four days as another away game awaits: The Scottish Cup trip to Dumbarton.

The visitors have scored 6 goals from 10 away games in the league, an average of less than one per game. It's worth mentioning that 3 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. Dundee have conceded 21 goals in these games.

This was the end result when the contenders played each other earlier this season; Dundee - Livingston 0-0. As for the last ten games between these two teams, there's three Livingston victories, two draws and five Dundee wins.
