Match Preview

MacDonald back for Livi Livingston welcome back defender Cameron MacDonald to their squad to face East Fife following the face injury he sustained in the opening league game of the season against Alloa. MacDonald's return has given Lions' manager Gary Bollan a full squad to pick from and he is looking for home comforts to inspire his men to a fifth win in five games. He said: "Everyone is fit and raring to go and as we have not had a home game for a wee while now I am looking forward to playing on front of our own crowd again. "East Fife have a great attacking threat and they like to play football on the ground, so it should be a really good game." East Fife will be missing suspended striker Bobby Linn when they travel to West Lothian, following his sending off against Ayr United last week. Fifers boss Stevie Crawford is looking for his side to put a disappointing day behind them by winning in West Lothian - they lost out to three penalties against Ayr. He said: "I am glad I kept quiet last week as it was a very strange day. "The first penalty was soft, the second was disappointing but the third decision was correct. We need to pick ourselves up and this is a great game to have to do that in. "Livingston are firing on all cylinders so we need to be up for things from the very first whistle. We are going there looking for a win."

Match Report

Livi held by Fife Livingston remained top of the league despite being held to a 1-1 draw at home to East Fife. Livingston are yet to lose a league game this season and would have expected to hold onto the lead against a side that have struggled to hit top form so far. Raffaelle De Vita opened the scoring for clear favourites Livi in the 56th minute when he fired home from close range. The lead lasted less than 12 minutes though as Kurtis Byrne pulled Fife level with a fine strike from 18 yards in the 68th minute. Livi surged forward in search of the winning goal but could not find the breakthrough, meaning both teams had to settle for a share of the spoils.
