Livingston looking for a lift against Raith Rovers

Livingston take on Raith Rovers looking to win consecutive games for the first time since the end of last season but Darren Cole (knee), Craig Sives (back) and Danny Mullen (hamstring) will all be missing.

Mark Burchill will have Myles Hippolyte and Moses Druckell back available for selection as the ninth-placed Lions look to continue their rise up the table.

Burchill said: "Raith have had a brilliant start to their season and proving themselves to be a well-organised side.

"However we have taken a lift from defeating Queen of the South 4-1 and moving off the bottom of the table. We are determined to build on that by getting another win."

Raith Rovers' on-loan Dundee striker Craig Wighton has made a quicker-than-expected return from a knee injury and is included in the Kirkcaldy travelling party.

Ross Callachan is available after a shoulder injury but Craig Barr (groin) and Lewis Vaughan (knee) remain out injured.

Manager Ray McKinnon said: "We may have lost to Hibs last weekend but we can be pleased with the way we played. We will need to be at a high standard again as Livingston are in a false position.

"It will be a tough game to win however we have been a top-four side for most of the season and want to stay there."
