02/01/2023 6:00 pm
Livingston and Motherwell will go head to head at the Almondvale Stadium in round 20 of the Scottish Premiership looking to kick off 2023 with a victory.
While the hosts are without a victory in their last three matches, the visitors head into the new year winless in six successive matches across all competitions.
Livingston failed to move into the top half of the Scottish Premiership table as they were held to a 1-1 draw by St Mirren when the sides met last Wednesday.
David Martindale’s side had previously enjoyed a decent run of results during the World Cup break as they picked up two wins and lost one of their three friendly matches before suffering back-to-back league defeats to Celtic and Hibernian.
The Livi Lions, who are now winless in four league matches in a row, are currently seventh in the league table, level on 24 points with sixth-placed St Johnstone.
Meanwhile, Motherwell have experienced a tough first half of the season and find themselves 10th in the league standings, just three points above bottom-placed Ross County, although with a game in hand.
There underwhelming campaign has been due to their struggles on home turf, where they have the league’s worst record with just one win and five points from eight matches.
Steven Hammell’s side took to the pitch for the last time in 2022 on Wednesday when they suffered a 3-0 defeat away to Rangers through goals from Alfredo Morelos, Connor Goldson and Malik Tillman.
The Well have now failed to win any of their last six matches across all competitions, recording two draws and losing four since October’s 1-0 victory against Dundee United at Tannadice Park.
