Livingston striker Liam Buchanan insists team are heading in right direction



Livingston striker Liam Buchanan insists the Lions are heading in the right direction – even though they are still in the Championship relegation mire.

David Hopkin’s side have only been beaten once in their last four matches, a run that also includes a crucial victory over basement side Alloa.

Livingston Facade 1000pxThe West Lothian outfit are now desperate to close the four point gap on eighth place Dumbarton in today’s visit of the Sons and experienced marksman Buchanan is confident they can beat the drop.

He said: “We’re still in the play-off relegation spot so we can’t really get too carried away but it’s about building on the performances and results.

“We’re picking up points here and there and even in the Morton game in midweek, I don’t know if we would have picked up that point before.

“At this stage it is about picking the points up and we seem to be doing that more often, and that can only stand us in good stead.

“The boys are all enjoying the training and everyone is doing well on the Saturday.

“It’s another big one on Saturday against Dumbarton, we’re needing a result.

“We’ve had a few decent results at home so we’re looking to build on that this season.”

Dumbarton manager Stevie Aitken is hoping to be granted international clearance to hand Sebastian Osei-Obengo his debut at Livingston after signing the Ghanaian marksman from Gibraltarian outfit Europa Point FC.

Aitken, whose side stunned Hibs last weekend, said: “Sebastian gives me another option in the striking department and I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do for us.”
