Ryan Hardie ready for Raith debut

Raith Rovers will include Ryan Hardie against Livingston after he joined on loan from Rangers.

Jason Thomson can play despite breaking his nose against Falkirk last weekend and a fit again Craig Barr could be involved for the first time this season with Iain Davidson also available.

David Bates, Kyle Benedictus and Lewis Toshney are banned and Lewis Vaughan remains out with a knee injury.

Manager Ray McKinnon said: "The players showed a lot of determination to get a point last weekend and we will need the same approach to see off Livingston. We have not won in a while and will look to put that right."

Second bottom Livingston are again without defender Scott Sives who has a hamstring problem as they look to build on last weekend's goalless draw with Hibs.

Manager David Hopkin said: "It was a good battling performance from the team and the manner it was achieved in gives us a great platform to build on.

"However I am sure that Raith Rovers will be saying the same after coming back from behind twice to get a point at Falkirk.

"In this league every team is playing for something and every team is capable of getting something. Hopefully we will do that at Stark's Park."
