Livingston could stun Partick Thistle early on in the Ladbrokes Premiership playoff final first leg.

David Hopkin's side have again been written off by bookies despite an incredible first season back in the Championship.

Their aggressive, direct game is not to everyone's taste but their fitness cannot be questioned and they will run all day for their manager, as Dundee United found out in the last round when they ran out of steam.

Thistle like to try and play attractive football but that has been their downfall this season and Livi should relish the occasion. Veteran striker Lee Miller loves a battle and it could be a tough night for the Firhill men.

Recommendation
Livingston to score before 63rd minute
