Saints vs. Livingston 31/03/07

Recommended Posts

Saints team news:

Milne and Rutkiewicz have suffered setbacks in training so will be unavailable.

Simon Mensing starts his three-game suspension.

Kevin James is fine after his head knock on Saturday.

Derek McInnes, Allan McManus, Steven Anderson and Martin Hardie are all suffering from knocks and are unlikely to train until tomorrow but will be given every chance of making the game.

All I know for Livingston is that Steven Tweed is suspended and Paul Shields has joined Ayr United on loan.

Livingston have probably deserved the points they've taken from us this season, albeit in all three games we've contributed to our own downfall with shocking defending and goalkeeping. The defence looks to have firmed up and the attacking players are on form so I'm hopeful of three points.

plenty of injuries to worry about but hopefully this will give some of the other guys a chance to get in there and show their worth.

got to win this not only because we need three points but because livi have not lost to us all season. having quite a few mates from livi I am not allowed to forget this fact.

Any form of win would be good at this point in the season

A bit concerning all this "major injury worries" thing on the Official Site... At one count it was 8 or 9 starters rated doubtful. If it's as bad as is being made out, surely the club must consider getting this game postponed as it's such a crucial game for us. Others clubs have successfully done this this season, and the SFL seem only too happy to oblige since the Forfar fiasco.

Or perhaps there are really no injury worries, and it's just a cunning ploy to lull Meadowbank into a false sense of security...

Its fair to say that the injury problems are correct but that doesn't mean all these players will be unavailable for the game. It is credit to the individuals concerned that many of these players have played, and will continue to play, despite struggling with injury. Most of these players were carrying injuries prior to Sunday and indeed Mad Mental Martin was due to come off before James suffered his head knock. In recent weeks, James, Scotland, McManus, McInnes, Hardie and Peaso have been struggling with injury but have carried on regardless.

These are true professionals who are prepared to play through the pain barrier for their manager and the club whereas Thistle have a team full of Big Jessies :-)

Will Always Be Meadowbank......hate Them,,

Ferranti Thistle for ever!

Saints will win with a clean sheet. Sherrin man of the match despite a well taken hat-trick from McInnes (the last bit is maybe a tad fanciful).
