Rangers loanee Robby McCrorie has been given a huge vote of confidence as he keeps his place between the sticks for Livi ahead of Max Stryjek, who has been David Martindale’s number one in recent times.
Callum Davidson meanwhile has opted for Craig Conway over Guy Melamed, the Israeli striker scoring twice at Fir Park last week in a 3-0 win over Motherwell. There’s more heartbreak for Murray Davidson, who like the 2014 Scottish Cup final, is missing out on a showpiece event due to injury.
It’s an unusual final and not one many could have predicted at the start of the season. Livi are looking for their first piece of silverware since lifting this trophy in 2004 while this is St Johnstone’s first chance at a cup since winning the Scottish Cup in 2014.
Here’s how both sides line up at Hampden this afternoon.
McCrorie, Devlin, Guthrie, Ambrose, Serrano, Holt, Lawson, Bartley, Pittman, Mullin, Robinson.
Subs: Stryjek, McMillan, Taylor-Sinclair, Fitzwater, Sibbald, Kabia, Forrest, Emmanuel-Thomas, Reilly
St Johnstone XI
Clark, Rooney, Kerr, Gordon, Booth, McCann, Craig, Conway, Kane, Wotherspoon, McCart
Subs: Parish, Brown, Tanser, Bryson, Gilmour, May, Melamed, O’Halloran
