Yep cracking day all round for us, extending our lead back to 8 points over Morton and 9 points clear of Utd, with them having just 1 game in hand over us. This season just keeps getting better and better.

Got a feeling in my water we're goig to finally pump Dunfermline on Tues night too, bring it on. bounce

Lee Miller says his move to Livi has given him a new lease of life. Says while at Falkirk they thought Livi were just a long ball team but now says "they are so much more than that."

Aye Lee don't we know it, Falkirk players talk pish and are up their own arses with their delusion that they play better football than Livi.

Well that was like a wee party ahead of three difficult games against Dunfermline, Morton and St Mirren.
We dominated from start to finish and the only wonder was that we only scored 3 goals.

I just wonder where we could be if we had started the season with Miller and Hardie up front. Hardie is great to watch. His deal with Rangers is up at the end of the season. Best scenario for us would be if they offer him a new contract and then send him out to us again on loan. Otherwise I'm sure other clubs will be interested in signing him.

Wee mention re the referee. He got most (not all) things right and was pretty even handed. First time we've had him this season. I'm readying myself for my usual rage against Stephen Finnie on Tuesday night! Rolling Eyes

Great win yesterday. The one thing I was left wondering is how much better Boyd would be if he passed more and occasionally moved out of second gear and tried a sprint more often. Not surprised he doesn't get much game time. Depending on how good Frizzell is, Boyd might find his game time reducing more.

Lovely finish from Hardie, pity he didn't square it for a goal in the 2nd half but I suppose that's part of the make up of a god striker, having a greedy streak in themselves and total belief when presented with a shot at goal. Mullin's miss too, ooft. Burgers conspired to knacker me for my 4-0 prediction and deliberately fecked that chance up to keep it 3-0. Laughing

Good calls by the Lino for Hardie making a perfect run onto the ball for his goal too, and even better one for Rafa's, those are the type of goals we've been getting wrongly chopped off, so great seeing an official who gets them right too.

Yeah I was thinking that too, thought we were a decent striker away from a top 4 spot and would be on the fringes either 5th or 6th, but turns out we were a good striker away from challenging St Mirren for the title, and Hardie would've given us a very good chance of doing that. Still, him and Miller were great signings by Hoppy and may still get us promoted. Hopefully Frizzell is just as good and will add even more quality to our team in the run in to the play offs.

11 League games undefeated, 7 wins and 4 draws (6 of them clean sheets), mon Livi keep it going and go into the play offs on the back of a fantastic undefeated run. bounce

Hi guys.Sorry about the late post but im just back from my jolly down to Newcastle which was brilliant.Poor signal down at St James park prevented me from getting accurate accounts on the Dumbarton gave on the Twitter feed,but i knew we were up 3 0 at half time.Will watch the highlites later as in knackerred at the moment so im not sure if we took the foot of the gas in the second half.Will check the other posts to give me a better insight as to how the game went.As has been said a great result from Hoppy and the lads so a big well done to all them for a job well done.Thoughts on the Pars game in the next couple of days.T.

If Hardie's deal is up... Let's get promoted & sign him on the basis that he will be playing top flight football every week!!

Looks like the keeper made a ricket of stopping Miller's shot for the opener.
Sublime chip from Hardie.
Nice flick on from Hardie & good anticipation from Rafa for the 3rd.
Hardie was far too greedy on the 3 on the goalie break away, he should have scored with the chance but really made a mess of it & the better option was to play the square ball for a tap in. Credit to their keeper for making the save but he really shouldn't have had a prayer.
And that miss from Mullin that hit the post was shocking, definitely should have scored.

Still, well done guys, 3 goals, 3 scorers, clean sheet, 3 points & the march to the play offs continues.

Looks like the Dumbarton guys were struggling to get any highlights of their team in the first half,it's just a procession of Livi attacks, a bit better from them 2nd half but we really should've buried them 5-0. Good highlights though.
