Mehmet off injured too, Utd having to use their back up keeper, all good if they get through to the semi's.

Prices are up for both games.

Utd are charging £15 adults in the away leg.

Livi are charging £20 adults for the home tie.

That is a very fair price from United & while I am more likely to be at the home game than the away game (not sure I'd make it on Monday night) I think Livi have overpriced it. I can understand why but IMO £20 is too much for a SPFL football match.

Aye they're wanting to encourage more fans down to this game but charging a fiver more than Utd. Still, it's a huge game for us so i'm bringing a few folk down to our home game and will just suck it up for that reason.

Thought with the game being shown on tv the club would have at least matched the united price to entice folk to get off the couch.

So United it is then.Got to to be honest here i genuinly thought wede be facing the Pars in this but the Arabs will do for me.They of course are the bigger team and will be expected by some to brush us aside but we know diffirent.Its a one off and if Hoppy can get the lads up for one final push i feel weve got a great chance of doing something special here especially with the return leg at home.As long as we give ourselves a good chance going into that second leg then ill be happy.Agree with both comments about the pricing,dissapointing especially as Hoppy is asking the local community to get behind us.Just hope it doesnt put to many people off as we,re gonna need as many supporters to roar us on in what is gonna be the biggest game in years for us .Anyway we are where we are.Nearvous but at the same time i know we have it in us to do this.Good luck Livi,Cmon lets do this!!!

So what are the thoughts on our starting line up for these games?


Maybe better setting up a bit more defensively for the first leg to try and keep it tight, then be more attacking in the home game.

Josh is looking good getting down the wing and putting balls across again but he isn't great in defence, i'd leave him out in this game and save him for the 2nd leg. Rafa would be fine though, good in attack and defence tracking back. Think having our midfield 3 pitbulls to control the midfield would be good too, and either bring Robinson on 2nd half in the last 15 mins or save him for the 2nd leg too.
I know I said Robinson and Mullin would be in my team but I think now i'd save them for the home leg and set this one up more defensively, to try and either get a draw or a narrow defeat and give us the best chance possible for the home game. Reckon even a 1 goal defeat would see us winning the home game and going through. Can see Hoppy setting us up not to lose this game, a draw would be a great result here.

In two visits to Tannadice it's been 3-0 & 2-0... So hopefully lessons have been learned & we don't play the same way which was clearly to their liking. I know the first game was an illness ravaged side & the second was effectively meaningless for us but no goals scored & 5 conceded can be a psychological stumbling block regardless of the circumstances surrounding those games/results.

I'd go with your line up but I don't think Hoppy will. I think he'll start Rafa on the right & either Longridge or Cadden on the left depending on who has shown more in training.

Head says we can win this but probably won't; heart says it hopes we will win; gut says United will do enough to make them confident of success but not enough to write us off.

United 2 Livi 0
I think our goal drought will continue.

Are we still doing predictions into the play offs?

If we are then i'll go for an optimistic draw, 1-1, fg 32 mins.

*edit. scratch that prediction, I've made a new one.

As long as we can take something positive back into the home leg, I’ll be happy with that. Mentally it would be a big bonus if we could find the net tonight, given our barren run in our last two visits.

1-2, FG 24 mins.

An early goal would be great, it would immediately get their fans onto their players backs too. They've started slowly in recent games, but looked better in the 2nd half, so if we can go in at HT with a lead we'd have a decent chance of getting a 2nd half goal on the counter and taking at least a draw back to Almondvale's pasta bowl arena.

Really fighting against myself to change my prediction to a 2-1 Livi win here, but i'll stick to my original prediction. Laughing
