Livingston’s Jack Fitzwater is confident that the team will come good after a poor recent run. The poor run saw the team drift towards the relegation places in the Premiership, and also saw manager Gary Holt resign after a defeat to St Mirren.

Team could be on way back to form

However, following a comfortable 4-0 Betfred Cup win over Ayr United in which he scored twice, Fitzwater feels that the good times could be on their way back to the club, even after Holt’s exit.

He was encouraged by how the team responded to Holt’s exit, which couldn’t have been easy for the players.

“It’s one of them things in football, it happens, and you have to draw a line in the sand and go again. I think the way we’ve trained since it happened, it shows that we’re a good group of lads. There’s more to come from us, our season will probably start from now” Fitzwater said, regarding the exit of Holt, and how the club can come back from that.

“You don’t get the rub of the green”

Fitzwater feels that Livingston have been a bit unlucky this season, when it comes to some of the games they have lost, and is hopeful that the win over Ayr can be a kickstart to the season going forward.

“Sometimes you don’t get the rub of the green. Some of our performances have been good when we’ve lost, and then we’ve won games when we haven’t played as well. If we keep to the standards we’ve done today (against Ayr) then it’ll keep us in good stead for the season.”
