Your Matchday: Livingston v East Fife

Free scoring East Fife are tomorrow's visitors to the Braidwood Motor Company Stadium as we return to home soil after four weeks on the road.

We haven't faced the Fifers in a league match for more than eleven years, but the sides did meet in the CIS Insurance Cup back in September 2001, when two goals from Massimilano Caputo and a late Steve Tosh strike gave us a 3-0 win.

More recently the two sides met on Reserve League Cup duty, with our young side running out very comprehensive 7-0 victors.

Assisted by former Livi favourites Jason Dair and Scott Crabbe, Fife boss Steve Crawford will be looking to enact revenge for that result and get his side back to winning ways.
