Preview: Aberdeen vs. Livingston - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Wednesday's Scottish Premiership clash between Aberdeen and Livingston, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Aberdeen play host to Livingston on Wednesday evening looking to further strengthen their hold of seventh position in the Scottish Premiership standings.

Meanwhile, Livingston make the trip to Pittodrie having already been relegated, yet still looking to end the season on a high.

Match preview

With Peter Leven having been required to undergo a hip operation recently, Aberdeen's outstanding form could have potentially dropped off during the run-in.

However, with their interim boss back in the dugout on Sunday, their impressive run continued as they thrashed Hibernian by a 4-0 scoreline at Easter Road.

As well as the result being eye-catching in isolation, Aberdeen have now posted three successive wins and put together a run of five games without conceding a goal.

Just one goal has been conceded in an undefeated stint of seven matches when 17 points have been collected, putting the club one point clear in the race for seventh.

With 12th and 10th place to come, Leven and the club's supporters will have every confidence they will deliver the best possible finish after the cut-off.

Having spent much of the season with just three league wins to their name, it has been accepted for some time that Livingston would be playing second tier football in 2024-25.

Nevertheless, David Martindale's side have shown some resilience of late, recording victories over Ross County and St Johnstone at their home ground.

Although there was a 4-1 reverse at Motherwell in between, it has at least added some respectability to their record, now sitting just seven points adrift of St Johnstone in 11th spot.

Despite the recent positivity, you have to go all the way back to August 26 for the last time that Livingston won on their travels, when they overcame Hibs in Edinburgh.

Team News

Barring any issues that arise before welcoming Livingston, Leven could opt to select the same Aberdeen XI.

Players were rested during the closing quarter at Hibs when 3-0 up, with 16-year-old Fletcher Boyd coming off the substitutes' bench to net on his debut.

However, the teenager will remain among the replacements, with Bojan Miovski spearheading the 4-1-4-1 formation yet again.

Having combined for Livingston's winner against St Johnstone, Andrew Shinnie and Steven Bradley are both pushing for recalls.

Tete Yengi will likely drop out to accommodate one of the aforementioned pair, but James Penrice remains doubtful through injury.

Aberdeen possible starting lineup:
Roos; Devlin, Gartenmann, MacDonald, MacKenzie; Barron; McGrath, Clarkson, Polvara, Hoilett; Miovski

Livingston possible starting lineup:
George; Nottingham, Devlin, Kelly, Montano; Pittman, Brandon; Nouble, Kelly, Bradley; Anderson

We say: Aberdeen 2-0 Livingston

Having got back to winning ways at the weekend, Livingston will fancy their chances of causing a surprise at Pittodrie. Nevertheless, we cannot ignore the Dons are the better team and have home advantage in their favour, leading us to predict a solid victory with a clean sheet.
