Livingston without Ben Gordon for Hibernian visit

Livingston are without the suspended Ben Gordon when they welcome Hibernian on Saturday.

Gordon serves the second game of a two-match ban while hamstring problems keep Scott Pittman, Moses Duckrell and Craig Sives sidelined.

Manager Mark Burchill said: "There were positives to take from the game at Ibrox (last weekend) despite going down 3-0. I will look for us to build on them against a Hibs team that is clicking into place.

"One win will get our season up and running and it would be terrific to get it in this game as it would really help our confidence."

Hibernian's new signing Adam Eckersley will not make his debut in the game.

The former Hearts left-back, who signed a short-term deal until January, is around three weeks away from playing as he recovers from a knee operation.

Midfielder Fraser Fyvie and striker James Keatings are sidelined with hamstring injuries and striker Farid El Alagui (knee) is also unavailable.

Head coach Alan Stubbs said: "It is a chance to build on last week's result and performance (3-0 win over Alloa). We know it is going to be a difficult game. We have no divine right to go anywhere and just think we can turn up (and win)."
