Livingston Preview

Last updated : 23 September 2004 By Firparkcorner

Well, there is no reason not to believe that this cannot be the match where our fortunes turn round. Livingston are struggling while we are flying high. Six games unbeaten, five of them being wins, should ensure that our confidence is sky high. But the match at Inverness showed that we have to be fully committed every time we go out. Surely we have learned by now that by playing football on the ground for ninety minutes will ensure that are rarely beaten? Why do we persevere in being rotten for a half, thumping hopeful balls for McDonald and Clarkson to chase? If anyone knows the answer to these questions, let us know!

A rare goal at Livvy
Scott Leitch shrugged off a shoulder injury to play mid-week so he should be fine to take up a place in the middle of the park. A concern will be Kevin McBride who was subbed in Inverness and immediately disappeared down the tunnel with the club doctor. If he is not fit, the team will require changing for the first time in a while.

Livingston have only won once in the SPL but they will have taken heart from their extra time win over Dundee on Tuesday. Jim Hamilton is a tricky opponent but we must fancy our chances of scoring against a team which has 87 year old Alan Kernaghen playing at centre half.

We won away a lot last year and the cut price tickets this Saturday will ensure we are backed by a sizable support. We won’t let them down but it will take another second half comeback to give us a 2-1 win.
