McGuffie spot on for Queens

Ryan McGuffie's late penalty earned basement club Queen of the South a point in a 2-2 draw with Livingston.

Livi, looking to bounce back from three defeats in a row, fell behind just 16 minutes in when Tom Brighton drilled a left-foot effort into the bottom corner from 12 yards.

Liam Fox pulled the hosts level five minutes before half-time with a low finish after he had been found in the area by Marc McNulty.

The Lions appeared to be heading for victory when substitute Stefan Scougall smashed in from inside the area in the 73rd minute.

But Craig Barr upended Gavin Reilly and McGuffie smashed home the resulting spot-kick to ensure his struggling side earned a share of the spoils.

Fotheringham out for Livi

Livingston will be without midfielder Mark Fotheringham against visitors Queen of the South through suspension.

Full-back Jason Talbot is in line to return after a month out to assist Bollan's aims.

Manager Gary Bollan is determined his men start making their Braidwood Motor Company Stadium a place to be feared again.

"We had a long unbeaten run at home that went in November and since then we have lost another couple of games," he said.

"I am looking for us to start a new unbeaten record by defeating Queen of the South although it is not just a case of turning up and a new record starting.

"We will have to scrap for everything against a hard working side that have done well recently."

Queen of the South are again missing strikers Kevin Smith and Marc McCusker.

Smith has a groin problem while McCusker is struggling with a hip injury and both men continue to miss out.

The Doonhamers sent Partick out of the Scottish Cup before holding league leaders Ross County to a goalless draw and manager Gus McPherson is looking for his men to build on that in West Lothian.

McPherson said: "Our confidence levels have increased after the last couple of games but we will not be getting carried away as there is a lot of hard work ahead.

"Our last game at Livingston was a great one although it ended in a draw after we were two up. A win this time would be great."
