Livingston boss Mark Burchill ready for tough test against Morton

Livingston will be without the injured Scott Pittman (hamstring), Moses Druckell (hamstring) and Gary Glen (hip) as they look to defeat visitors Morton.

Boss Mark Burchill said: "We have been away from home in our last three games and won cup ties at both Queen of the South and St Mirren. We also drew at St Mirren in the league and hopefully we can now find that high-level form at home.

"There is quality in our squad and they will need to use that to get the better of a Morton team who are very difficult to play against and who enjoyed a good win at Alloa."

Morton are again without the injured Frank McKeown (knee) and Joe McKee (hamstring), with goalkeeper Derek Gaston as well as Mark Russell and Peter MacDonald all rated as doubts after recent knocks.

Michael Tidser is available after a knee injury but a lack of game time this season could see him restricted to a substitute role, with manager Jim Duffy saying: "There is very little between the teams. Livingston will view this as a winnable game as they are at home and keen to get their first success of the season.

"We will have to play with the same mentality that we showed when we won at Alloa last Saturday."
