Will Celtic avoid a huge potential banana skin and stay clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table?

On Wednesday night, Cameron Carter-Vickers’ volley followed by Callum McGregor’s low drive saw the Celts beat St Mirren 2-0 at Parkhead.

This result means Ange Postecoglou’s side remain three points clear at the top and are now unbeaten in 23 Premiership games.

But, things have not been plane sailing for the league-leaders of late.

First, they were knocked out the Europa Conference League, getting hammered 5-1 on aggregate by Norwegian champions Bodø/Glimt.

Then, last Sunday, they drew 0-0 with Hibs at Easter Road but, luckily, stayed three points clear because Rangers could only draw with Motherwell later that day.

So, will the Hoops claim three points here?

The last time Celtic lost to another Scottish club was on 19 September when, you guessed it, they went down 1-0 at Almondvale.

In all, Celtic are winless in all five trips to Livingston since the Lions won promotion back to the top-flight four years ago.

David Martindale’s side continue to punch above their weight and in a big way.

In fact, the Lions moved up to fourth on Wednesday thanks to a comeback 2-1 victory over Dundee United.

Scott Pittman equalising before an own goal seven minutes from time saw Livi snatch victory.

This means Livingston are now unbeaten in five Premiership games, also hammering Dundee 4-0 last weekend, so currently occupy a European spot.

This would be remarkable because they last feature in UEFA competition two decades ago, losing to Sturm Graz at the Arnold Schwarzenegger Stadium.

Will Celtic claim their first victory at one of the world’s other best-named stadium, the Tony Macaroni Arena, since 2007?

Bruce Anderson has scored 13 goals for Livi this season, four of which have come since the start of February, the joint-most of any player in this period.

He’ll line-up in attack alongside Alan Forrest, brother of Celtic winger James.

Goalkeeper Max Stryjek is their other outstanding player, having saved 72% of the 115 shots on target he’s faced this season.

Coming up after this, Ange Postecoglou’s side don’t play again for eight days, a rare free week, so can give this game absolutely everything.

David Turnbull and Kyōgo Furuhashi remain long-term absentees while Georgios Giakoumakis has missed the last two games due to illness.

So, Daizen Maeda will continue up front although Albian Ajeti was on the bench for the first time since 5 December on Wednesday due to a hamstring injury.

Matt O’Riley and Reo Hatate were chosen in midfield against St Mirren but Tom Rogic could return to the XI here.

James Forrest is the last Celtic player, who could feature here, to score against Livingston, doing so in a 6-0 victory 11 months ago.
