Team News: Livingston
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just one fitness concern for the Livingston gaffer David Martindale to be concerned with due to a largely intact group. Tom Parkes (Knee Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Dundee United
Owing to a fully healthy group to choose from, the Dundee United manager Liam Fox has no fitness worries to report ahead of this clash.
We’re inclined to think that Dundee United will need to push hard to put one past this Livingston lineup who we think should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
Our tip is therefore for a good tussle with a 1-0 winning score for Livingston when all is said and done.
