Recommended Posts

A fourth successive clean sheet from Gillespie and we'll take things from there...

With Aberdeen facing the OF this week and us facing them next week with Aberdeen having a winnable game we could do with 3 points here. Hopefully Long is fit, he could make the difference. 

 

Game on MFCTV?

Audio only at livi

The safest approach, as even the video highlights of games on that pitch can make your eyes bleed.

This is going to be a tough one.

I think it's only Aberdeen (2 - 0) and Rangers (1 - 0) that have beaten Livi at home so far this season.  We drew - which I said at the time was a decent effort - and Celtic lost.

Any kind of a win would be a great result.

I’m glad there’s a bit of rain forecast in the run up to the match. At the start of the season the pitch was really dry and sticky... at least this time the players should be able to get the ball out from under their feet.

Once again cannot help thinking that a point would be a positive result. They are a half decent side with decent recent form and the "advantage" of a plastic pitch at home. However, we are going well ourselves and have got the good habit of keeping clean sheets. Find a goal or two and we should be looking at all three points, which would qualify as an excellent return.

Bought a ticket for this but can no longer attend.  Cost me 25 but will sell it for 20. Can drop it off anywhere in Motherwell or can collect in Ravenscraig. 

PM if interested

No, this time the ball will shoot away in this weather. This pitch is shite in all weathers.

Team?

 

Same as last week but illic, long and hulton up top? MacIver, Seedorf and Mazinga off the bench with Carson, Mugabe and MacGuire?

Assuming Scott is away. Wouldn't bring anyone in to the first team who hadn't trained with us no matter who we bring in

Think il watch the rugby instead. Got a boring 0-0 written all over it now. 

I might watch the Wales game. The Scotland team give me the fear.

Probably Livingston will be saturating the pitch, Accies style, to ensure the ball is hard to control on the deck. 

Robbo has said that Hylton and Long are both fit.

Any chat on whether or not Long is fit?

Praying Long is fit.

If he isnt, the Smart money would be to bet on Motherwell Nil! A combo of no actual strikers in our squad and that utter abortion of a pitch doesnt make for a good afternoon for us

So we are looking at

Gillespie

Grimshaw, Hartley, Gallagher, Carroll

Campbell, Polworth, Donnelly

Hylton, Long, Ilic

Unless Aarons is fit enough to replace Illic. Livi will deploy every means possible to get and keep the ball in our box for as long as possible. That said they'll favour route 1.

More likely

Gillespie

Grimmy  Hartley Gallagher Carroll

OHara Campbell Donnelly Polworth Hylton

Long

Think we will match them up physically again like we did Aberdeen. Depends on how the pitch is running. If its wet Hylton might be ok but he struggled on matchday 1 when it was really dry. Couldnt get it out from under his feet. Maybe Ndjoli thru the middle with Long otherwise.

Was really up for this. Combination of Scott’s leaving. . A winger up front. Honestly and crap weather I’m 60/40 to not bother now. 
£27. Fek me

Hoping for at least a point and setting off to pick up Stephen shortly. We will be getting a bite to eat before the game in the banquet type area so anyone around feel free to say hello.
