There’s been a lot to admire about Livingston – who are currently fifth in the Scottish Premiership table – in the 2019/20 season.

Gary Holt’s team stand to finish in the top half, although it remains to be seen whether the current campaign will resume or be voided amid the Coronavirus outbreak.

It is thought that the preference is for the season to conclude at some point, but of course nothing is certain during these unprecedented times.

Prior to the suspension of football, Livi had been going well, especially between December and February.

A top-six finish seems likely if the season is to resume, but a challenge for third will be tough with nine points available pre-split and Motherwell seven ahead.

Here are some of Livi’s best results from the current campaign.

4-1 win vs Ross County at Global Energy Stadium (24/08/19)

Livingston recorded their first league win of the season in style with a 4-1 win over Ross County back in August.

Holt’s side blew their opponents away in the first half an hour of the game, scoring thrice through Jon Guthrie, Steven Lawless and Lyndon Dykes, before Ross Stewart pulled one back for the Staggies.

Jack Stobbs then added a stunning goal on his debut, meaning a fantastic afternoon all-round for Livi fans.


County were poor defensively and Livi could have been five or six up, but the final result was still the Lions’ biggest top-flight win since December 2018.

2-0 win vs Celtic at the Tony Macaroni (06/10/19)

Livingston’s victory over Celtic in October was surely their best display of 2019/20.

Off form and up against an unbeaten side, few really expected Livi to get anything against league leaders Celtic, but goals from Scott Robinson and Lyndon Dykes halted a run of four straight defeats and served the Hoops their first of the season.

It was a defensively resolute performance from the hosts, with counter-attacking a real thorn in Celtic’s side on the day.

It was the first time Celtic had failed to score in a game in 148 days, making the result all the more impressive.

Livi were perhaps unlucky not to record a second win of the season over Celtic earlier this month, with Tom Rogic striking in injury-time to rescue a point for Celtic.

It was another brilliant display from the hosts, with Dykes again giving Christopher Jullien and co the runaround.

Celtic had been on a run of 12 games unbeaten before their third meeting against Livi, making this another top result.
