Falkingham on his sick bed Dunfermline midfielder Josh Falkingham is a major doubt for the visit of Livingston due to illness. The former Leeds, St Johnstone and Arbroath player has been ill for most of the week, but Andy Barrowan has shaken off a virus and Jordan McMillan and Joe Cardle have both recovered from knocks. Chris Kane remains sidelined due to an ankle injury. Assistant boss Gerry McCabe said: "We have recovered really well from losing to Thistle in the second game of the season and are into a bit of momentum now. "Livingston will make it hard for us and will play a lot of good football, but we should have enough about us to win the three points." Livingston winger Bobby Barr will be missing from the Lions squad as he is set to join Second Division East Fife on loan. The West Lothian side will also be without suspended Paul Watson and the injured trio of Kyle Jacobs, Jason Talbot and Liam Fox, but Keaghan Jacobs should return after a knee injury. Manager John Hughes said: "We've been saving some of our best performances for away games this season and hopefully we can put another good one on at East End Park. "Dunfermline have put a good run together after losing to Partick Thistle in the their second game, but hopefully we can get into the right tempo and put an end to that."
