Triple boost for Lions

Livingston welcome back three players to their ranks when they host Morton.

Coll Donaldson and Callum Fordyce are available after suspension while Andrew Barrowman has now overcome a hamstring injury.

Lions boss John McGlynn will finalise his side after fitness checks on Ross Docherty and Burton O'Brien, and he is looking for his side to build on a fine 1-0 win at leaders Dundee last weekend.

McGlynn said: "I have a happy problem as I have more players available this week but the players who played at Dundee were terrific. Kenny Shiels is building a new Morton side and they will be dangerous opponents."

Bottom club Morton are boosted by the signing of former Chelsea youngster Ben Sampayo and the return of fellow defender Scott Taggart after injury.

David O'Brien is a doubt after four months out with a shoulder injury, with manager Kenny Shiels having a simple approach to this game.

Shiels explained: "We have improved as was evidence by our goalless draw with a good Raith side last week but we have not managed to get a goal in my time in charge yet.

"If we get a goal we will get some confidence and if we get some confidence then we can get a win."
