The last round of games in Premier Sports Cup Group D throws up a host of possibilities as a win at the Tony Macaroni Arena could see us as possible group winners or runner up.

It is however a strong challenge for us against the Premiership side who were runner up in last season’s tournament to St Johnstone, who of course went onto record a cup double success.

David Martindale’s sides have seen mixed fortunes in a group which has proved to be one where anyone on their day can pull off a result against anyone.

The opening game saw a 3-0 win over Highland League new boys Brechin City at Glebe Park with Tom Parkes, Ayo Obileye and Jackson Longridge getting the goals. However the visit to the Indodrill Stadium saw an Alloa side, who had lost to us in the midweek, run out 2-1 winners with late goals from Scott Taggart and Alan Trouten cancelling out Bruce Anderson’s opener for the West Lothian side.

Then on Wednesday evening in their first home game of the season they fought out a goal less draw with group leaders Raith Rovers and collecting a bonus point from their 6-5 penalty shoot out win. That result left Raith on seven points, one ahead of us and two ahead of Livi. Whilst we battle it out in West Lothian Rovers host Alloa at Starks Park.

It is the return to where his managerial career started for Gary Bolloan who won the Third and Second Division titles in successive seasons a decade ago as the club bounced back from being demoted to the bottom division after being placed in administration.

Three of our players have also played for the Lions – Craig Barr, Bobby Barr and Liam Buchanan.

For who ever successfully makes it through the draw for the knock out stage of the cup will take place on Sunday evening live on Premier Sports.

Entry to the match is by ticket only which are on sale from Livingston FC.

Adults - £10 Concessions £5.
