Falkirk V Livingston at Falkirk Stadium - Match Preview

Bairns looking strong for Livi test

Falkirk have a fully-fit and suspension-free squad for the visit of a Livingston side that the Bairns have yet to get the better of this season.

Manager Steven Pressley has the happy problem of all his strikers staking a claim for starting places, with the experienced Sean Higgins and David Weatherston coming off the bench to help see off Dunfermline 1-0 on Saturday.

Pressley said: "I have lots to think about for the Livingston game as both Sean and David made a huge difference when they came on. Sean gave us energy and David got the goal, so we are in a good position for this game.

"Livingston have had the better of the games between us so far this season and it is time for that to stop."

Livingston look for their third win of the season over the Bairns, but striker Marc McNulty faces a late fitness test due to the hamstring problem that has kept him out for the last two games.

Keaghan Jacobs is out long-term with a knee injury, Ross Docherty is not yet ready to return after a groin problem and a fit-again Jason Talbot will not be considered due to a lack of games after 10 months out following knee surgery.

The Lions won 3-0 against Cowdenbeath at the weekend, but head coach Gareth Evans is telling his side to be wary of a confident Bairns side.

He said: "They will have taken a huge lift from beating Dunfermline, especially as the goal came right at the end of the game."
