History of the Dundee v Livingston fixture

Livingston face a trip to Dundee at Dens Park on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 9 out of 13 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in March 2005, with Livingston inflicting a narrow 0 - 1 defeat upon the Dees in a Scottish Premier match.

Recent respective form guides

Dundee's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While Dees have scored 4, a worringly large 7 have been leaked at the other end.

Livingston's away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. The Livi's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 10 goals for and 8 against.

Dundee see themselves just below half way in the Bells Scottish Division One, showing a record of 3 points from their 3 games played so far, Livingston are just outside the promotion places, in 2nd, having taken 7 points from 3 games.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing appears to be going right for the Livi out on the road recently, yet the Madmen can see a turn around in fortunes as they battle to a victory in a closely fought contest at Dundee. Away win
