Lions without Barrowman

Livingston are only missing striker Andrew Barrowman, who has a groin problem, as they look to build on last Saturday's 3-0 win over Raith Rovers by seeing off visitors Falkirk.

A win would announce the Lions' arrival as serious play-off contenders as they would pull level with Alloa and move to within a point of the Bairns and the Kirkcaldy side.

Manager John McGlynn said: "It has been my best spell since I came here as we are five games unbeaten. It would be great to take that to six with a win over Falkirk.

"It was a really good performance against Raith and we will need that level again."

Falkirk, who are unbeaten in six, are without midfielder Thomas Grant who has been laid low with a virus.

Striker Philip Roberts is fit to start at the Energy Assets Arena after injury restricted him to a substitute role in the goalless draw with Alloa with Technical Director Alex Smith looking for his side to keep up with Dundee and Hamilton at the top of the table.

Smith said: "Livingston are bang in form just now but we are doing okay ourselves and it should be a cracking match as both sides are good footballing teams.

"We want the win to keep putting pressure on the top two."
