Chaplain missing for Rovers
Albion Rovers will be without midfielder Scott Chaplain when they take on Scottish Championship side Livingston in the Scottish Communities League Cup.
The 30-year-old is unable to play any part as he is on work duty at the Commonwealth Games but he is his side's only absentee as they look to build on last Saturday's penalty shoot-out success over Airdrie.
The Coatbridge side's player/ manager Darren Young is telling his men that they face a severe test at their Cliftonhill home as he explained: "We did really well last weekend and our players are improving and getting fitter every week, however Livingston will be very difficult opponents.
"They are a good full-time side and favourites to win but we gave a very good account of ourselves last week and are looking to repeat that."
Livingston include goalkeeper Paul Grant, a new signing from Hibs, but Kevin Walker misses out once more due to a knee problem.
Simon Mensing is also out with a knee injury and Nejc Praprotnik misses out with an ankle knock but Keaghan Jacobs could return after a broken leg.
Manager John McGlynn said: "Albion Rovers had a very good result last weekend when they got the better of a team from a higher league. They will take confidence from that and we will give them full respect.
"However we are in confident mood as well after getting a good win at Queen of the South."
