Denholm banned for Livi

Livingston have Danny Denholm suspended as they look to open up a three-point gap on visitors Dumbarton in the Championship table.

The Lions are also without the injured Mike Mampuya (knee) and Mark Burchill (calf), with the game coming too soon for Ross Docherty who is returning after three months out with a groin injury.

Simon Mensing is a doubt with a hamstring problem, with manager John McGlynn saying: "I am looking for a response after a disappointing second half against Falkirk last weekend where we lost three goals in a 4-1 defeat.

"I am sure that Dumbarton manager Ian Murray will be saying the same after they lost to Morton."

Dumbarton are missing Scott Smith and Garry Fleming through ankle injuries as they look to bounce back from losing to bottom of the table Morton last week.

Scott Agnew could return to a starting role after two substitute appearances following injury, with manager Murray saying: "We were undone by two set pieces last weekend and that was disappointing.

"Livingston got the better of us earlier in the season in a game where we were winning.

"It would be good to make amends for that by winning this one. We won here 3-2 last season and it would be terrific to have a similar success this time out."
