  1. Martindale 'proud' after Livi beat Hibspublished at 17:52

    Livingston boss David Martindale tells BBC Scotland: " The boys were fantastic, defended our box well and I'm really proud of them."

    [On yellow card]: "I thought it was a dive at the time. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. I'm not saying he's doing it to cheat, but he's gone down really easy. I spoke to Martin Boyle after on the park and he said it was a penalty. The referee never said it was. The emotions are high from both dugouts at that point.

    "It was just a wee frustration boiling over. It helped the players on the park, strangely. They saw the emotion from the dugout, which got the stand going, which got the players going."

    [On Joel Nouble]: "I think Nouble needs to stay at Livingston. If a bid came for him before the window shut, he won't be going anywhere. We need Joel Nouble. Another six-to-12 months will do us both well."

  2. Lively in West Lothian as Lions find late winnerpublished at 17:49

    Andrew Petrie, BBC Scotland

    The epitome of a game of two-halves, but what a game it was.

    It really had it all. A fantastic first-half from Livingston, a spirited second-half from Hibs, chances and challenges aplenty.

    Livi were magnificent in the first-half. Jason Holt and Stephane Omeonga were terrier-like and Nouble ran riot up top.

    But Hibs hit back well in the second-half. They look a completely different side with Martin Boyle. Their confidence was non-existent before the winger came on, but as soon as he was introduced there was a feeling they could score with any attack.

    The late winner summed up Martindale's Livingston side, though. Entertaining and gritty in equal measure. They're great value.

  4. Fitzwater says Livi should target top sixpublished at 14:54 12 August

    Jack Fitzwater believes Livingston's start to the season indicates their intent to challenge for a top six Scottish Premiership finish.

    Livi, who host Hibernian on Saturday, led Rangers before losing 2-1 then beat Dundee United 1-0 at Tannadice last weekend.

    "We've still got a lot of players from last season so there's a lot of Scottish football experience there, which is really good to have," said Fitzwater.

    "You can see in the Rangers and Dundee United games where we're at and how we're going to be this season. We said we wanted to beat last season's points tally, which I think would get us top six. Top six is probably our aim from inside this building.

    "I know a lot of people won't put us as top-six contenders but inside the four walls here, that's got to be our objective and then if we can get a cup run, that would be great. We'll focus on beating last season's tally and see where it goes from there.”

  5. Martindale hopes to add "one more" to Livi squadpublished at 12:49 12 August

    David Martindale hopes to add another attacking player to his Livingston squad before the summer transfer window closes.

    Livi have one win and one defeat so far in this season's Scottish Premiership and host Hibernian on Saturday.

    "I'm still looking for probably one more to come into the building but I'm fairly happy with where we are as a collective unit," said Martindale.

    "I'm looking to bring an offensive player in. We're talking to a couple of clubs and players and we'll hopefully get something done before the window shuts.

    "I've got a plan B, though. If we miss out before the window shuts, there are a couple of out-of-contract players I've got my eye on that we can potentially sign after the window.

    "If the window shut tomorrow, though, I'd be quite happy with where we are. I think we've got more than enough to be competitive in the league this year."

  9. Nouble shows the way for Livingstonpublished at 18:53 7 August

    Livingston capitalised on the presence of Joel Nouble in Sunday's 1-0 Scottish Premiership win over Dundee United.

    The striker occupied defenders and gained territory through second balls.

    Indeed, Nouble's power was instrumental to Cristian Montano's winning goal and the striker drew a save from goalkeeper Mark Birighitti late on.

  10. Martindale predicted Montano winnerpublished at 17:20 7 August

    David Martindale was delighted with Livingston's 1-0 Scottish Premiership winner against Dundee United at Tannadice and revealed he predicted scorer Cristian Montano would make an impact.

    "The players were brilliant," Martindale told BBC Scotland. "We were difficult to beat, we pick up a clean sheet and, on another day, with probably a bit more composure in the final third, we maybe nick one or two more.

    "I said to Cristian at half-time, 'you're going to win the game for us today' and he did. It's a fantastic strike. He's got good qualities and I think we saw those qualities."

  12. Dundee United 'a different animal' - Martindalepublished at 20:06 5 August

    Livingston manager David Martindale believes Dundee United will be "a different animal this season".

    Martindale's Livi, who lost to Rangers last week, travel to face United on Sunday, with the Tangerines having beaten AZ in Thursday's Europa Conference League qualifying first leg.

    Jack Ross replaced Tam Courts as United head coach this summer.

    "Jack Ross is a very good manager and I know (assistant) Liam Fox as well," said Martindale. "They've got a really good backroom team up there and I think they'll be a different animal this season.

    "I don't mean that disrespectfully to what they did last year. I just think Jack's got a wealth of experience and I think they'll be a difficult team to beat this year.

    "But going up to Tannadice, we want to kick-start our season. We want to try and pick points up and get something from the game."

  13. Dundee United v Celtic - team newspublished at 19:29 5 August

    Dundee United are waiting on a work permit for Aziz Behich while there is a question mark over the fitness of fellow left-back Scott McMann. Midfielder Peter Pawlett is missing.

    Livingston will be without Tom Parkes for most of the season and though fellow defender Morgan Boyes is close to recovering from an ankle problem, he will not be ready in time for Sunday.

    Did you know? Livingston were unbeaten in three meetings with United last season, winning the latest two, including December's visit to Tannadice.

  15. Survival the priority for Livi - Bartleypublished at 13:06 1 August

    Marvin Bartley says finishing in the Scottish Premiership's top six for Livingston would be "unbelievable" but believes survival is the priority.

    Livi opened the new campaign with a 2-1 loss to Rangers, having finished seventh last season.

    "I'm going to say 10th or above, I'm going to be boring," assistant manager Bartley told BBC Scotland's Sportscene.

    "If we can sneak our way into the top six like we have two of the last three seasons, that'd be an unbelievable.

    "But it's about staying in the Premiership for our players, staying up first and foremost but we would love to go in the top six and who knows, European adventure?"

  16. Rangers changes pay dividendspublished at 16:04 30 July

    Changes after the break helped secure Rangers a 2-1 win away to Livingston as goals from Scott Arfield and James Tavernier followed Joel Nouble's earlier opener, BBC pundits suggest.

    Former Scotland midfielder Michael Stewart: "Rangers were playing with some good tempo, but credit to Livingston, they were difficult to break down.

    "In the second half, they raised it again and played with even more pace in their game and when they had the chance to put balls into the box they were a bit more on point and accurate.

    "Goals change games and Joel Nouble had that opportunity to make it 2-0 and then the game turns on its head with Rangers able to get themselves level."

    Former Rangers winger Neil McCann : "It was like a home game for Rangers because of the number of fans allowed in here. You felt it was coming, but you wondered if Livingston had weathered the storm.

    "Then, as soon as Arfield gets across that front post with a little deft flick to get Rangers level, you knew the roof would just cave in and they would go and get the second. You didn't know it would be so quick and it was comfortable after that.

    "The changes made by Giovanni van Bronckhorst were good. I think Malik Tillman is going to be a big player for Rangers - he's a strong boy, he makes good runs and he's quick - and the substitutions were required."

  17. Martindale praise for Nouble displaypublished at 15:07 30 July

    Joel Nouble's sublime lob over Jon McLaughlin opened the scoring

    Livingston manager David Martindale lamented a missed breakaway chance for Joel Nouble to score his second goal of the game as Rangers came from a goal behind to win on the Scottish Premiership's opening day.

    "There was a big moment when Joel breaks through," Martindale told BBC Scotland. "At 1-0, you go two goals up, it’s a different game."

    Nouble nevertheless received praise for his performance, which started with a fine chipped opening goal after five minutes.

    “I thought it was a very good overall number nine performance. Let’s be honest, we probably sold Lyndon Dykes from a similar performance.

    “His finishing is coming on. It’s a part of a game we’ve had to work on with him. Fair play to Joel, he told us he bought a new pair of boots with goals in them."

    Martindale was disappointed that his side fell short of a surprise win.

    “I think, the first half, we dealt with them really well," he said. "They didn’t cause us many problems.

    "Scott Arfield scores every time he comes here. And then James Tavernier does what he does. I’m gutted for the players. I’m not saying we deserved more, I think we were unlucky.

    “Apart from two moments of magic, we were probably still in the game."
