Lions without duo

Livingston will miss Mike Mampuya and Nejc Praprotnik due to knee injuries as they host a Hamilton side still hurting at being knocked off top spot.

Player/assistant manager Mark Burchill is a doubt with a calf injury as Lions manager John McGlynn looks for his men to start this game in the same manner as they finished last Saturday's 3-2 success at Cowdenbeath.

McGlynn said: "We scored three times in the last 13 minutes to come from behind and win. It was a terrific period but we have to start like that against Hamilton.

"They are a very good side so only our highest level of performance will do."

Hamilton, who lost top billing to Dundee last weekend, will again be without player/ manager Alex Neil due to a stomach muscle problem at Livingston however striker Mickael Antoine-Curier returns after five weeks out with a fractured jaw.

Neil said: "I am delighted to have Mickael available again as he can be a big player for us. We have lost our last couple of games but we are playing well. We are just not taking our chances and hopefully he will help us do that.

"Livingston came back well to win at Cowdenbeath from two goals down so they will buoyant going into this game. We have to match that."
