St Johnstone vs LivingstonScottish Premiership, KO: 15:00 May 28, 2023, McDiarmid Park
ST JOHNSTONE entertain Livingston in a game that is the very definition of dead rubber in the final day of the Premiership season.
Both sides are in the bottom half of the split, neither can go down and the only slight point of interest is Livi's quest to finish in seventh place ahead of Motherwell, who they are a point behind.
Saints secured their safety the other week with a huge win at Kilmarnock and that appears to have been enough to get Steven MacLean the McDiarmid Park job on a permanent basis after he took control following the sacking of Callum Davidson.
It's been far from a vintage season for the Perth club, but they can at least be satisfied they avoided getting dragged into a relegation bunfight.
Livingston have rallied recently after appearing to have downed tools, with one eye on the sunbeds. They defeated Dundee United at home and managed to scramble an unexpected point with ten men at home to in-form Motherwell.
It will be the last game for captain Nicky Devlin before a move to Aberdeen and theoretically, with the pressure off for both teams, it should be an entertaining game
How the bookies view it
Recent head to heads
This will be their fourth meeting this season…and Livingston are going for the clean sweep. Livingston have won twice without conceding a goal in West Lothian and won 4-2 in Perth earlier this season.
Players to watch
Stevie May scored his tenth goal of the season with a double against Ross County in midweek and the former Aberdeen striker is approaching his best again. He will be of interest when goalscorer markets are formed.
Bruce Anderson is in terrific form right now and netted against Dundee United last week for his seventh goal of the season.
Anything else catch the eye?
Saints scored three in the Highlands on Wednesday and they do look slightly more attacking under MacLean.
David Martindale's side usually have goals in them and if they can score with their keeper sent off against Motherwell this week, they can score against the Saints.
With the pressure off, that usually leads to goals and over 2,5 goals would also be worth a go at a very decent price of 29/20 with BetVictor.
These are two sides who don't usually score many goals, but when the pressure it off, it could lead to goals at both ends.
