Livingston – St Mirren preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Livingston vs St Mirren lineups.

Livingston

Livingston recorded their first win of the season last weekend when edging Hibernian 3-2 away from home. Sangare played very well in this match and he had a goal and an assist. 

After failing to score in their first 2 games Livi were happy to bag 3 goals in these last outings and they will likely keep the front line unchanged. This would mean Sangare trusted from the off ahead of Nouble. The latter is doubtful as he is also lined with a move away from the club. 

Livi don’t have any serious injury issues. That said the useful Bruce Anderson has been dealing with back pain and he has seen his minutes restricted in recent games. 

Predicted Lineup: 

George (GK), De Lucas, Obileye, Devlin, Brandon, Guthrie, Holt, Pittman, Montano, Kelly & Sangare

​St Mirren

St Mirren were seconds away from starting the new season with 3 consecutive wins. Unfortunately for them deep in stoppage time they conceded when hosting Aberdeen and had to settle for a 2-2 draw.

Still, the start to the season is great and the Saints scored at least 2 goals in every league game so far.

They remain somewhat shaky defensively though. Yet to keep a clean sheet and conceded 2 in 2 of the 3 rounds played. This can be explained by the fact that the team’s best centre-back O’Hara continues to be missing injured. He is the only absence.

Predicted Lineup: 

Hemming (GK), Fraser, Gogic, Taylor, Strain, Baccus, Boyd-Munce, Tanser, McMenamin, Kiltie & Mandron

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.

Player to Watch: Keanu Baccus

St Mirren’s creative midfielder Keanu Baccus has been impressive so far and we back him to be crucial again. The Aussie created 4.2 big chances per game in the first 3 rounds and his through balls and inch-perfect crosses have been St Mirren’s main source of chances. 

Baccus also likes playing Livingston as in 2 of his last 4 matches against that opponent he was voted Player of the Match. Can he make it a hat-trick of such awards now?
