Both St Mirren and Livingston hope to improve their positions in the Scottish Premiership, where goal difference currently separates them this weekend with kickoff at 5 pm.
St Mirren is in a European position after the first seven games of the 2022-23 campaign, and they will be looking to retain or improve that status this weekend.
Right now, they sit just above Livingston due to their strong goal difference, but they will no doubt want to put some actual points between them.
Despite a disappointing 3-0 defeat against St Johnstone, the Buddies returned dominantly during their final performance before the recent international break.
St Mirren competed against league leaders Celtic and handed defending champions their first defeat of the season with a brilliant outing.
Livingston has been equally as strong defensively as the Lions come into this match after keeping two in a row.
David Martindale’s squad has not been quite as strong offensively, as they have failed to score more than once in a game across their previous five outings in all competitions.
However, Livingston’s consecutive 1-0 victories showcase their ability to keep things tight and grind out results. A third victory in a row could potentially see the visitors climb up to third place if Hearts also drops points.

St. Mirren Team News
St Mirren manager Danny Lennon is likely to name the same team that defeated Celtic last weekend in his squad for the match against Aberdeen this weekend. Midfielder Kenny McLean will continue to push forward with attacking flair, while the solid back line of defenders should provide a strong defensive presence.
Livingston Team News
The visitors will likely not change their approach much since they kept a clean sheet in their previous performance. Bruce Anderson has been out of action due to an ankle problem, but he is expected to return soon.
Prediction and Odds
The two teams are so close to one another right now that it may be reflected in the result this Saturday.
