Match Preview

Ross ready for Livi debut Livingston are set to hand former Scotland full-back Maurice Ross his debut. The recent signing, who most recently represented Motherwell, has returned to full fitness after suffering from a groin strain. Cammy MacDonald and Keaghan Jacobs are available again after injury and have been added to manager Gary Bollan's squad, but midfielder Liam Fox (ankle) will not feature. Bollan believes Morton will adopt a more defensive formation for this game, but is sure that their manager Allan Moore will still be looking for three points. The Lions boss said: "Morton are well known for the attacking threat that they possess and it is unlikely that we will not face that at some point in the game. "This will be a tough game regardless of the formation they put out." Morton centre-back Andy Graham is added to manager Allan Moore's squad after suspension as they bid to become the first side to win at Almondvale for 18 months. Defender Stewart McCaffrey is a major doubt with a heel injury and Moore has already ruled out Michael Tidser with a knee injury and Sean Fitzharris with a hamstring problem. After three defeats in their last four games, Morton have slipped to fourth place and Moore has told his players it is time to start heading back in the right direction. He said: "We have to pick up our game and get going again. Our form recently, particularly away from home, has not been good enough. Livingston will be tough hosts but we can win."

Match Report

Russell is spot on for Livi Iain Russell's first-half penalty earned Livingston a Scottish First Division point as they were held 1-1 by Morton. The result means that Livi have now won only twice in 10 games in all competitions, but their long unbeaten home record remains intact. The visitors took the lead after 15 minutes when Fouad Bachirou picked out David O'Brien to fire home. The equaliser arrived in the 33rd minute when goalkeeper Matthew McGinley brought down Marc McNulty in the area, and Russell calmly stroked the penalty into the bottom corner for his 10th goal of the season. The hosts almost found a winner in the 70th minute, but Stefan Scougall's shot from the edge of the area hit the post.
