Competition: Scottish Premiership
Market: Livingston win
Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365
Handed a golden opportunity to extend on what has been a stunning purple patch, Livingston will make the trip to a downbeat Global Energy Stadium on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, putting in what was another woeful display and hit with a 3-1 defeat away at Kilmarnock over the weekend, Ross County find themselves in the midst of a real crisis. With fans around the Global Energy Stadium watching their side endure a three-match losing run, the Staggies also came crashing out of the FA Cup thanks to a shock 1-0 loss against lower league Ayr United. Along with holding the worst defensive record in the Premiership, there is no doubt that Head Coach Steven Ferguson will be most concerned by his side’s recent issues in the final third. Yet to record a victory on home soil since opening the New Year, County have recorded just a pair of strikes in over 450 minutes of action.
As for the visitors, while the mood in Ross County’s camp might be at a continued low, Livingston find themselves enjoying what has been a stellar purple patch. Picking up a 1-0 win over third-place Motherwell on Saturday, Gary Holt’s men find themselves in the midst of a four-match winning run and have tasted defeat just once since the 24th of November. One man to keep an eye out for on Wednesday night could be leading marksman, Lyndon Dykes. With eight Premiership goals this season, the 24-year-old has bagged five goals in his last seven appearances. Picking up a thumping 4-0 victory when the two sides faced off at the Tony Macaroni Arena prior to the festive break, Livingston should be confident of making another statement in midweek.
Bet: Livingston 1/1 to beat Ross County in Wednesday’s Scottish Premiership contest @ Bet 365
