Fans were furious with the defending, and even goals from Moi Elyounoussi and Nir Bitton to put the visitors ahead at the break didn’t appease some supporters.

David Ormond: “I hate the say this, we will need a third with how fragile we seem to be these days.”

@DreadfulDredge: “Fantastic 'offside' goal that will keep NL in the job for a few weeks more.”

Falling behind had many fearing the worst.

@beeeley: “It’s a disgrace that we have people employed at our club who are being paid as defensive coaches . If that defending happened on a Sunday morning it would be criticised. Shambles of a display as a defensive unit .”

@SanBernardino9: “Another set piece goal. Another day gone by without Lawwell and Lennon being sacked.”

@Mikey_Bhoy_1993: “Going 1-0 down to Livingston reserves is somehow considerably less embarrassing than Lennon's Monday press conference.”
