Recent respective form guides

Livingston's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Livi have scored 5, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

St. Johnstone's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. The Saints's have scored 7 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 9.

Livingston see themselves just below half way in the Bells Scottish Division One, showing a record of 28 points from their 21 games played so far, St. Johnstone are just outside the promotion places, in 2nd, having taken 34 points from 20 games.
