Dumbarton v Livingston

Dumbarton player/manager Ian Murray has brought in St Mirren full back Paul McGinn on loan and he will make his debut against Livingston.

Nicky Devlin has returned to Motherwell at the end of his temporary spell.

Murray has no injury worries for their game against the Lions and he may include himself in the squad as the Sons' numbers are low after fringe players Ross Forsyth and Pat Walker were both allowed to leave.

Murray said: "We have done really well recently with three wins in a row and climbing off bottom spot but nothing has been achieved as yet.

"I have seen Livingston a few times and they are a good side so we need to be at our best again to win this one."

Livingston head coach Gareth Evans includes defender Paul Watson for the first time in four months.

Former Ipswich youngster Watson has recovered from a knee injury.

Knee problems keep Jason Talbot and Keaghan Jacobs out with the game coming too soon for Ross Docherty following a groin injury.

Evans said: "I have known their manager Ian Murray since we were at Alloa years ago and he has done a terrific job.

"If the league had begun in January Dumbarton would be top of the table so we are facing a team that is bang in form.

"We won last week at Dunfermline without playing at our best and I would not like to try and do that twice in a row."
