Livingston, who could be in the top four come close of play, welcome back Queen’s Park Rangers target Coll Donaldson after a ban with Callum Fordyce also available after suspension. Striker Andrew Barrowman makes his comeback after a hamstring injury however Ross Docherty and Burton O’Brien are both injury doubts.

Livi boss John McGlynn said: “Morton are improving every week and they will start picking up wins soon. We have to ensure that their revival starts another week and not this one.”

“We had a great 1-0 win at the league leaders Dundee last weekend and it would be terrific to build on that and take us closer to the play-off chase.”

Morton remain 8 points of the partial safety of ninth place and 15 away from the total safety of eighth look for revenge after a 5-1 home defeat from the Lions the last time the sides met.

The Cappielow side’s sixth recent signing, former Chelsea kid Ben Sampayo, is included with fellow defender Scott Taggart set for a return after injury.

Manager Kenny Shiels said: “We are getting more solid as a team every week however we need to start posing more of a threat. If we can get a goal then we will get some confidence and if we get some confidence then we can go on and get a win.”

We have improved as was evidence by our goalless draw with a good Raith Rovers side last week but I want us to score the first goal of my time here.”
