Livingston have enjoyed a revival since they last played us, losing only to the top four teams in the league and reaching the semi finals of the League Cup. When we sneaked the points in the last meeting, we dominated for the opening hour but then Livi came back into the game and played some nice football. We should have been home and dry but given we were not and they will look back at their own missed chances and perhaps feel they should have taken a point.

His goals have been instrumental in giving Livi the confidence needed to progress up the table.
Livingston are now second bottom, two points clear of
We may not be relaxed for the full game but we will withstand the pressure and emerge with a very useful 2-0 win.
