After two defeats in a row at the start of their Scottish Premiership campaign Livingston will be host St. Mirren on Saturday in the second round of Scottish League Cup in a rematch from last year’s semifinals.

The guests will also be looking for an opener draw and loss after their first win since the group stage of the competition.


Prediction for this match

Livingston managed three wins and one loss in the group stage of the competition, in which they scored six goals to secure their place at that stage.

Despite her impressive work in the Cup, the Scottish Premiership didn’t go as smoothly as it did David MartindaleThe squad is currently at the bottom of the league after the first two games.

Defeats to Rangers and Aberdeen have made it a difficult start for Livingston, who have already conceded five times while hitting the net only once in those games.

The Lions were successful in the Scottish League Cup last season and made it to the final, where they eventually failed against St. Johnstone, but before that the club did not allow a goal in the knockout stage of the competition.

Livingston actually faced St. Mirren in the semifinals last season and they hope history repeats itself since Scott RobinsonHis goal was enough to win 1-0 that day.

This time the game will not take place in Hampden Park, however, as Livingston welcomes the Buddies to the Tony Macaroni Arena and St. Mirren ruled the day with a 1-0 win in the last game at that stadium.

There wasn’t much to separate the two teams in the league last season, with each club reaching 45 points and it is Jim GoodwinThe team that started the new campaign is the stronger of the two, who already scored a point on the opening day.

An exciting 2-2 draw in Dundee started their season and there was an equally hectic game against Hearts in their last game, neglected in a 2-1 loss Kristen Dennis Received a red card late in the game.

Joe Shaughnessy has been the surprising threat for St. Mirren so far, as the defender has scored in both league games and also scored the goal in the group stage of the Scottish League Cup.

The Buddies were dominant in the first section of the competition, winning all four games in which they conceded only one goal, despite the fact that their game against Dumbarton did not actually take place due to the coronavirus and Goodwin’s team took a 3-0 win.

After being included in the match report against Aberdeen, Bruce Anderson will try again to take the lead for the Lions and continue its strong start to the new season.

Martindale, however, is without several key players in both Jack McMillan and Jaze Kabia not available with knee injuries that cause them to miss about eight weeks of action.

Keaghan Jacobs is still on the sidelines because of his protracted foot injury while Tom Parkes sets his way back to be fully fit again and could run off the bench.

It’s not all bad news for Livingston, however Jackson Longridge was able to return from his foot injury against Aberdeen while playing assistant coach Marvin Bartley will be available for the first time after missing two games due to suspension.

For St. Mirren, Shaughnessy is likely to keep his place at the heart of the defense based on his recent performances but it could be an opportunity for Conor McCarthy to get a few minutes in this game.

Two of Goodwin’s newest recruits Greg Kiltie and Alan Power have settled in since Kilmarnock joined the team and will try to keep their place on the team this Saturday as well.

Livingston possible starting line-up:
Stryjek; Devlin, Obileye, Fitzwater, Longridge; Pittman, Holt, Bartley; Sibbald, Anderson, Forrest

St. Mirren possible starting line-up:
Alnwick; McCarthy, Fraser, Shaughnessy; Tait, McGrath, Power, Tanser; Kiltie, Main, Brophy

Probability: Livingston 1-2 St Mirren

Both teams aim to win after a fight in the league, and with last year’s semi-finals in mind, St. Mirren will be looking for revenge.

The Buddies got off to a slightly stronger start to the campaign and looked impressive in the group stage, which could lead them to get through here in what is likely a highly competitive duel.
