Duo back for Sons

Dumbarton manager Ian Murray can call on Paul McGinn and Chris Turner for the clash with Livingston.

Both men were suspended for the 3-3 draw with Hamilton at the weekend, but goalkeeper Jamie Ewings and Hugh Murray remain out with hamstring injuries.

Murray said: "We are playing Alloa in the Scottish Cup this Saturday whilst the teams around us in the table are playing league games.

"I don't want to go to Recreation Park concerned about then moving ahead of us further as we have not won this game."

Livingston have received international clearance for new Slovenian defender Nejc Mevlja and he is line for his debut should Simon Mensing fail to recover from a slight knock.

A win would send the Lions from eighth place to fifth place and manager John McGlynn knows that his side will need to play better than they did on Saturday when they went down 2-1 to Queen of the South.

McGlynn said: "We would leap over Dumbarton in the table and that is a good motivation. However, to do that we need a 90-minute performance. On Saturday we only played for 45 minutes and paid the price by losing two goals."
