Livingston have confirmed that assistant manager David Hopkin will take charge of the club’s forthcoming matches against St Mirren and Falkirk.

The former Scotland internationalist has been put in place of first-team affairs following the dismissal of former manager Mark Burchill on Monday.

The Lions travel to eighth-placed St Mirren on Saturday before their trip to title-chasing Falkirk just three days later.

Hopkin, 45, joined the club last January after leaving a coaching role with then League One outfit Morton and, along with Burchill, helped keep Livi in the second tier whilst the club also won the Petrofac Training Cup.

However, the Lions are currently second bottom of the Championship having won just three games this season.

Livingston’s interim chairman Robert Wilson said: “Assistant manager David Hopkin has agreed to take charge of first-team affairs for Saturday’s match away to St Mirren and next Tuesday’s trip to Falkirk. We’ll hopefully be able to provide further updates next week.”
