Team News: Livingston
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the Livingston gaffer David Martindale to be concerned about from a near full-strength squad. Daniel Barden (Testicular Cancer) is sidelined.
Team News: Dundee
Dundee manager James McPake has to choose a team with limited availability. Liam Smith (Knee Injury), Kai Fotheringham (Ankle Injury) and Marc McNulty (Hamstring Injury) will not be playing here.
In our view, Dundee will need things to go their way to put one past this Livingston team who we think will end up scoring and staying ahead.
We therefore see a hard-fought 1-0 winning score for Livingston at the end of the 90.
