Livingston manager David Martindale is looking forward to welcoming the likes of Liverpool loanee Adam Lewis back to his Scottish Premiership squad.
The West Lothian side face Dundee at Dens Park on Saturday as both teams hunt their first league wins. Liverpool loanee Lewis has been training for a couple of weeks, as has winger Cristian Montano. Bruce Anderson has recovered from a diabetic seizure and Jack Fitzwater is returning from illness.
Livi were also hit with a round of positive Covid-19 tests earlier this season. Martindale says that things are looking better and the medical room is slowly emptying: “The couple of weeks without a game has helped. We’re getting there numbers wise. We’ve gone from one extreme to the other.
“We’ll probably have around three or four players who are available but won’t be in the squad this weekend. We aren’t in a bad place and the numbers are creeping up in the right direction.
“Craig Sibbald has trained, Jack McMillan has trained a bit this week. Cristian Montano and Adam Lewis have had a couple of good week’s training. Jackson Longridge probably won’t make Saturday. Sean Kelly has hurt his ribs and we think he has a broken or fractured one. But he still wants to train and I need to take that out of his hands.”
