Hugo's a go-go for Livi

Livingston can add new signing Hugo Faria to their squad to face Falkirk after international clearance was received for the former Portugal under-20 international.

Ryan Currie, who has a foot injury, is the only absentee for the Lions as they look to build on their midweek Petrofac Cup win over Queen of the South by grabbing their first goal and first points of the league season.

Manager Mark Burchill said: "I was disappointed with how we played in the league against Queen of the South last Saturday but much happier with how we performed in midweek. Falkirk will be disappointed after losing to Peterhead in midweek and we need to guard against the backlash from that."

Falkirk will have Aaron Muirhead available but Kieran Duffie remains out with a knee problem.

Manager Peter Houston is looking for a much-improved performance from his defence.

Houston said: "To lose 5-3 at home to a team from a league below us in midweek was very disappointing. We did not defend properly at all and I am looking for a much better showing at Livingston.

"If we put on a similar performance then we will be in trouble as they will be looking to get their first win. However if we go about things correctly then we have a chance to move on positively."
