Falkirk goalkeeper Allan Ferguson is out with an Achilles injury and Matt Glennon is set to continue.

Striker Andy Thomson is still recovering from a hernia operation while midfielder Darren Barr misses out with a knee problem.

The last time the two teams met at Livingston was just over four years ago, in April 2001, with Livingston running out comfortable 3-0 winners in a Scottish Division One match.
