Killie V Livi

Last updated : 27 August 2005 By Dov

Livingston manager Paul Lambert will miss the SPL trip to Kilmarnock.

The former Scotland international suffered a thigh injury in the midweek CIS Insurance Cup win at Raith Rovers and expects to be out for several weeks.

Defenders Harald Pinxten (hernia), Greg Strong (ankle) and David McNamee (Achilles) are all still missing.

But Emmanuel Dorado is ready to play at Rugby Park after suffering a minor knock against Dunfermline last week.
