Fifers minus injured duo for visit of full-strength title-chasers Livi

East Fife will be without injured pair Scott Robinson and Chris Duggan for their home game against Livingston.

Robinson has a groin injury and Chris Duggan is nursing a hamstring strain, while player/manager Gary Naysmith has warned his side they will be facing determined opposition.

Naysmith said: "There was a lot of expectation placed on Livingston at the start of the season in terms of challenging for the title. They are handling that well and are extremely determined to win games and be at the top of the table.

"However, we are usually strong at home and will look to take the game to them."

Livingston will add Morgyn Neil to their squad following suspension and the fit-again Jackson Longridge, giving manager David Hopkin a full squad to choose from as they look to keep pace with leaders Alloa.

Hopkin said: "Gary Naysmith has done a terrific job at East Fife and he will look to continue that by defeating us.

"Every game in this league is incredibly competitive and this one will be exactly the same.

"Our players worked extremely hard to get the better of Brechin last weekend and we will need to have the same endeavour in this game as East Fife have some very experienced players."
