Liam Buchanan insists there is no secret to Livingston’s recent winning run – because they were playing just as well during their barren patch.
The Lions have climbed out of the Championship basement following comprehensive victories over Queen of the South and Raith Rovers.
Successive wins has lifted the mood at the West Lothian outfit after Mark Burchill’s side had previously only managed to collect one league victory from eight outings, but striker Buchanan is adamant that they have been playing good football for much of the campaign.
Speaking ahead of today’s trip to Morton, the former Partick Thistle player said: “It’s great that we have been turning our performances into victories. Although we didn’t get too down and despondent when we went through that barren spell.
“I don’t think there’s much that has changed in our performances. It’s a very tight league and I suppose we’re not giving away the silly errors that were costing us but in general we have been playing as well as we have been in the last wee while.”
The Lions are now five points clear of basement side Alloa and can move closer to sixth place Ton with victory at Cappielow.
Buchanan said: “Morton have had a great start to the season so it will be an interesting game.
“Despite winning the last two matches we’re certainly not going to start singing and dancing about how we’ve been doing.
“I think it’s a case of trying to build a wee gap at the bottom, we’re looking up the table but at the same time we have to be aware of what is around us because Alloa are only five points adrift and that can change in a matter of weeks.”
