Tip Reasoning

Dundee United have a huge task on their hands on Friday night, as they head to Livingston looking to overturn a 3-2 defeat at home on Monday. They will need a big display in order to make the play-off final, as they look to go one step better than their loss at the final hurdle last season. Can they cause a huge upset with a second leg victory, or will the hosts take another step towards back to back promotions?

A 3-2 deficit isn’t a great thing to have in a semi-final second leg, but it’s especially bad for Dundee United. They come in to this clash in awful form, especially on their travels. They drew 0-0 at Dunfermline in the last round of the Premiership play-offs, which was their latest struggle on the road. They finished the season with a 3-0 loss at Queen of the South which was their final league trip of the campaign, and that blew their chance to finish above Livingston in the Championship.

Dundee United have won just one of their last six trips, and that came at bottom side Brechin – who failed to win a game in the second tier all season. Their entire campaign on the road has been problematic, having won just six of their 18 trips on the road. They’ve been beaten eight times on their travels, which doesn’t bode well ahead of this crucial trip. Can they turn around their poor record on their travels, or will this be their most damaging loss on the road this term?

Livingston won both of their home meetings with Dundee United this weekend, and they’ve won their last four at home to the Tangerines. They’ve won four of six meetings with the visitors overall, so we’re expecting another positive result for the home side as they continue their promotion chase. While Livingston lost their last home game, that came after they had secured their place in the top four. They relaxed late in the season waiting for the play-offs, but before that they won four of their last six at home – including a victory over Dundee United.

We think that the hosts are heading to the play-off final, and they should seal their progression with a victory on Friday night. With Dundee United in awful form on the road, including previous defeats at this ground, we can’t see anything but a victory for the Championship runners-up, given that they’re hosting a side who finished the season with the fourth worst record on the road in the season tier. A Livingston victory is our tip, along with a 2-0 victory.
