Livingston midfielder Jason Holt has urged his teammates to put the defeat by Hearts on Saturdsay behind them and take three points against St Mirren this weekend to kickstart their season.

After beating Celtic in their previous league outing, Livingston were blown away by a clinical Hearts performance at Tynecastle on Saturday, leaving Holt disappointed with the performance in the capital.

The former Rangers star now wants the West Lothian side to improve when they face St Mirren at the Tony Macaroni and get a valuable win against a team likely to be around them at the end of the season.

“Every year it’s extremely tough and we’ve had to play a lot of the teams who finished higher up last season. But we still wanted a better points return,” Holt said.

“We got a point at Dundee and beat Celtic but we were looking for something extra on Saturday – it wasn’t there.

“Hearts played well but we made it a wee bit easier for them. We were lacking. Hearts scored some good goals but we could have defended them better.

“We have another tough game coming next week against St Mirren. It’s a game you look at and say you really want to win it. We need to recover well.”
