Livingston Away - Match Preview

PostedFebruary 28, 2014

Match day 26 in the Championship see’s us head over the River Forth to face Livingston at the Energy Assets Arena on Saturday with a 3 p.m. kick off.
In the two previous games this season the West Lothian side have come out on top with two wins.
Back in late September on our last visit to Livingston things opened brightly with Kane Hemmings giving us the lead by a hat trick from Callum Fordyce along with further goals from Andy Barrowman and Mark Burchill saw the hosts run out 5-1 winners.
The return game at Central Park in December saw Hemmings give us a 2-0 lead but late goals from Marc McNulty and Barrowman saw Jimmy Nicholl’s first game back at the helm end in a 3-2 defeat.
Three players will be missing from the squad for the visit to West Lothian with both Kane Hemmings (hamstring) and Lewis Milne (ligaments) both injured while Kenny Adamson serves a one game suspension and misses out playing against his old side.
John McGlynn’s side currently sit in seventh place in the Championship table four points ahead of us.
The month of February saw four points collected in the four games played with a 3-0 win at Alloa and a home 2-2 draw with Dumbarton while defeats were recorded against Queen of the South (1-2) and last Friday night at Hamilton (0-2).
Livi have lost their last three home games with their last victory on home soil coming on 28th December when they beat Raith Rovers 3-0.
Pld 12 W 4 D 3 L 5 F 20 A 19 Pts 15
Last Saturday’s win over Dundee saw us stretch our unbeaten run to four games. During that run we have also beaten Hamilton 4-3 and Raith Rovers 1-0 while we drew 1-1 with Morton.
We are also unbeaten away from home since Jimmy Nicholl took over as manager, a run of five games.
Our last away defeat came on 23rd November when we lost 4-0 at Falkirk in what proved to be Colin Cameron’s last game in charge of the side.
