Scott Ross still absent for Peterhead against Livingston

Peterhead will be without Scott Ross against Livingston at Balmoor as the defender is still not fully over a groin injury.

The Blue Toon went down 2-1 at Brechin last weekend, but manager Jim McInally is far from despondent.

"We actually played really well at Glebe Park, particularly in the second half where we looked the more likely side to win," he said.

"Unfortunately our goalkeeper made a mistake at 1-1 and that was that.

"There will not be a problem lifting anyone for the visit of a Livingston side that will be looking to bounce back from losing 3-1 to East Fife in their last game."

Livingston are able to include Mickey Miller after a successful appeal against his dismissal at Bayview, but Alan Lithgow's red card in the same game still stands and he will miss out.

Ryan Currie is out with a knee injury.

Manager David Hopkin said: "Our appeal for Mickey received the right decision, however we never appealed Alan's and have to take his absence on the chin.

"Peterhead are a good side who have kept faith with a lot of their players for a number of years and that helps make them a good team. We will need to play well to get a win."
