Morton staved off relegation with a 3-0 win over Dumbarton in midweek will look to keep their hopes alive by defeating play-off chasing Livingston at Cappielow.

Garry O’Connor misses out due to an Achilles problem and the Greenock side also miss the injured trio of David O’Brien, Ben Sampayo and Reece Hands.

Manager Kenny Shiels said: “I was delighted for the players that they got a win in midweek. They have been playing well for a number of weeks now without getting a reward but things fell into place against Dumbarton.”

“It may not be enough but it gives us something very positive to build on. We beat Livingston in our last meeting so we can look to do that a second time and see where we are come quarter to five.”

Livingston skipper Simon Mensing looks set to be absent again due to an ankle injury and he will join the crocked Ross Docherty, Michal Habai and Andrew Barrowman on the side-lines.

Jason Talbot is suspended as the Lions look for the win that will move them to within 3 points of fourth placed Queen of the South.

Lions manager John McGlynn said: “It was really disappointing to lose to Dumbarton last week as we should have had the game won by half time. We didn’t and then invited pressure on ourselves when Jason was sent off.”

“We had won our last two games and picking up 9 points out of 9 would have given us a lot of momentum. However we can start again by winning at Morton however we recognise that they have taken a massive boost of confidence from winning on Tuesday.”
