Suspension keeps Morton striker Declan McManus out of Livingston clash

Morton will be without suspended striker Declan McManus against a visiting Livingston side looking to climb to the safety of eighth place in the Ladbrokes Championship.

Knee injuries continue to keep Conor Pepper and Frank McKeown away from the action and Michael Tidser is sidelined with a hip problem, while Lee Kilday, Jon Scullion and Stef McCluskey are all doubts.

Morton manager Jim Duffy said: "I watched Livingston in midweek against Hibs and thought they were very well organised and were unlucky to lose.

"They put in a very well-organised display and if they do that against us we will need to play well to win."

Livingston add Sam Stanton to the squad that lost at Easter Road after the on-loan Hibs midfielder was not allowed to feature against his parent club.

Danny Mullen remains out with an ankle injury and Gary Glen is still absent due to a groin problem.

"We have to view this game as a chance to jump above Dumbarton and put pressure on them to win their games in hand," said Livi manager David Hopkin.

"Morton are a good side who have had a good season, however if we play as well as we did against Hibs then we have a chance."
