JOHN McGLYNN would love Livingston to get back on track tomorrow but admits that Falkirk will provide one of his side’s toughest challenges of the season so far.

The Lions travel to Westfield hoping to return to winning ways following their defeat at Raith Rovers in their last fixture.

Victory would see the West Lothian outfit leapfrog their opponents, who currently sit fourth in the Championship, and McGlynn says his players are relishing the match.

He said: “It’s a matter of us trying to get back on track tomorrow but we know that this is generally one of the hardest games that we will face over the course of the season.

“It is certainly one that we will look forward to, though. There will be a bigger crowd than normal, they always have a good home support.

“That in itself will be good motivation as well as the fact that we can go above Falkirk in the table if results go our way.

“We know they will make it difficult for us.”

The Lions boss goes into the game minus the services of Danny Denholm, who is suspended, and has major doubts over the fitness of Marc McNulty and Andy Barrowman.

Moussa Mampuya, Mark Burchill and Ross Docherty, who has been out long-term with a groin injury, will definitely be missing.

The last time the two sides met, back in August, Livingston found themselves on the wrong end of a 3-0 scoreline.

However, McGlynn insists that he’s simply looking to the future now – and to continually improving both the results and performances of his side.

He added: “I am just looking at the fact that we have made good progress and that we are much further up the table now than we were when I came into the club.

“We just want to continue to improve. We have been playing some good football and improving all the time, performances have been improving.

“The squad have been very receptive of what I have been trying to do and I am happy with how things are going right now.”
