Gary Bollan wary of 'dangerous' Elgin

LIVINGSTON have the chance to open up a three-point gap at the top of the Third Division at Almondvale tonight, when they face an Elgin side still reeling after losing 5-1 to Berwick Rangers at the weekend.

Gary Bollan's men had to strike in injury-time to get a point at Stranraer on Saturday and the manager was pleased that his side kept battling to the end.

Bollan said: "Having put so much into the cup-tie in midweek against Dundee, it was great to see the boys still having the heart to keep going forward and rescuing what could turn out to be a vital point. Elgin proved to be dangerous opponents when they were here in September when we let a two-goal lead slip before scoring a late penalty to win and I don't expect this game to be any easier."

Elgin boss Ross Jack does not have his troubles to seek with Mark Nicolson joining Paul Kazcan on the suspended list following his red card at the weekend and Allan Dempsie ruled out with injury. David Niven is a doubt with defenders Steven Edwards and Zander Jack along with midfielder David Craig jnr all ruled out because of work commitments.

"In times of adversity you see what people are made of and some of our players have a chance to show me what they can do at Livingston," said Jack.
