The home side are yet to find the back of the net, while the visitors possess the second worst defensive record in the division.
However, having seen Jason Tindall make the step up at the Vitality Stadium, Robinson is now tasked with trying to avoid a third successive defeat in Scotland's top flight.
Succumbing to Ross County and Dundee United, two clubs not tipped to challenge for the top four this season, will frustrate the Steelmen boss, who had been hoping to keep pace with Celtic and Rangers during the early stages of the season.
Robinson will not panic just yet, aware that their upcoming opponents are low in confidence, but failure to emerge victorious on Wednesday night will increase the stakes ahead of a trip to in-form Hibernian at the weekend.
From Livingston's perspective, they will also be disappointed not to have built on last season's fifth-placed finish, the best in their history.
However, Gary Holt will acknowledge that thoughts about replicating that achievement are far from his mind after witnessing his players concede four times at home to Hibs.
Three first-half goals during a 17-minute period ended the game as a contest, and it leaves Holt to go back to the drawing board after a summer of upheaval.
While getting off the mark against Motherwell will be Holt's immediate priority, he will no doubt be casting one eye to the weekend's trip to Rangers.
Despite their underdog status heading into that contest, the pressure will only increase on his shoulders if they remain without any points to their name after three outings.
Motherwell Scottish Premiership form: LL
Livingston Scottish Premiership form: LL
Motherwell boss Robinson will again be without Callum Lang, who serves the second match of a three-match suspension.
Despite his side's poor showing against Hibs, Holt may still be prepared to start with a back three.
That would likely result in Aaron Taylor-Sinclair returning to the team at left wing-back.
Motherwell possible starting lineup:
Carson; Grimshaw, Gallagher, Mugabi, Lamie; Hastie, O'Hara, Campbell, Turnbull; Watt, Hylton
Livingston possible starting lineup:
McCrorie; Ambrose, Guthrie, Brown; Devlin, Bartley, Sibbald, Taylor-Sinclair; Pittman, Robinson; Dykes
We say: Motherwell 1-1 Livingston
While Motherwell are the clear favourites to prevail in this contest, Livingston can only improve after the weekend's heavy defeat to Hibs. Taking everything into consideration, we feel that the visitors could frustrate the hosts on the way to claiming a share of the spoils.
