Confirmation of Jim Goodwin’s move to Aberdeen has left St. Mary’s fans in a sad mood when they arrive in Livingston.

Decision

Livingston: Max Strategic 7, Nicky Devlin 8, Evo Obeli 7, Jack Fitzwater 7, James Pence 7, Scott Pittman 7, Jason Holt 7, Stephen Ominga 7, Alan Forrest 7, Joel Noble 7, Bruce Anderson 7.

Green: Morgan Boys (Obeli 75) 3, Andrew Shani (Anderson 75), Sebastian Soto (Noble 75) 3

Green: Jay Henderson (Gojak 64) 4, Curtisman (Grave 71) 4, Scott Tensor (Jones 76) 3.

Player of the Match: NICKY DEVLIN represents everything good about Livi. The Lions captain did not stop running up and down on the right side as he pushed towards him. He defended well and created opportunity after opportunity. Alan Forrest was also bright, while Bruce Anderson was a nervous man. Jordan Jones had some good moments for St. Mary’s but it was a team effort to get a draw.

The man in the middle: William Coleman was surrounded by home fans as he walked down the tunnel at halftime after Levi’s attack was stopped due to a St. Mary’s injury. Some of Whistler’s decisions were random. Bookings were also made for Joel Nouble and James Penrice as home fans were angry with the referee.

Men in the dugout: JAMIE LANGFIELD took over the reins of St. Marin after Jim Goodwin and should be proud of the way his players bounced back to claim the draw. It was a difficult day for the goalkeeper coach but his players gave him everything. Levy boss David Martindale had a great performance but he will be disappointed that he never stopped to win.


Bullet coach Jamie Langfield took charge of the team after being out of Goodon and will be proud of his efforts.

St. Mary’s has played much better lately but has shown real courage, especially after Charles Dunn’s late red card.

In the frame for work with the likes of Steven Nessmith and Scott Brown, Paisley will soon be looking to the future.

And the next boss will get a side full of quality and character based on this display.
