Livi trio still out

Livingston have named the same squad that defeated Dumbarton 4-3 last Saturday when the sides meet up again at the Braidwood Motor Company Stadium.

Jason Talbot and Keaghan Jacobs are out with knee injuries and Ross Docherty has a groin problem.

Lions boss Gareth Evans would be delighted if his side repeated the win they secured over the Sons last weekend, but he is looking for an improved performance.

Evans said: "Dumbarton had the better of the first half by a large extent and we cannot allow them to do that again. It looks good to have scored four times away from home but I am not getting fooled as we can improve a lot.

"They are an improved side, who will be out for revenge, so we have to be on our guard."

Dumbarton will give attacking midfielder Steven McDougall until the last minute to prove his fitness following a medial ligament problemn.

Player-manager Ian Murray, who is again ruled out with a groin injury, will decide his line-up once McDougall's fitness is determined at Saturday lunchtime.

Murray said: "We actually played some of the best football I have seen in my time here in the first half last week. We should have been winning at the break but it did not happen and we got a bit sloppy defensively in the second half.

"A win this time is not beyond us."
