Dundee United in great form under Laszlo

Livingston battling sickness bug

Dundee United celebrate with the Challenge Cup in March
1 of 1

Kick-offs 3pm Saturday

Dundee United have been a revelation since the appointment of Csaba Laszlo and they can beat a Livingston side who have been battling a sickness bug.

United have picked up after the dismissal of Ray McKinnon and under the former Hearts boss Laszlo they have beaten Falkirk, Dunfermline and Morton in the Ladbrokes Championship.

They were also well ahead on points last week at Queen of the South before the icy surface caused the game to be abandoned.

United face a Livingston side who have punched above their weight this season, but their slim squad could cause them problems as the season progresses.

They couldn't defeat Falkirk at home in midweek and manager David Hopkin admitted he was delighted with a point after they were hit by the bug.

They have lost striker Danny Mullen to St Mirren and a United team full of confidence can beat them at Tannadice.

Ayr are going for their tenth win in a row and they should get it at Airdrie.

Ian McCall's free-scoring outfit average almost three goals a game and they once again play on their favourite artificial surface at Airdrie.

Their hosts do pretty well at home, but United are a class above every side in Ladbrokes League One and seem to have a goal threat all over the pitch - even central defender Michael Rose got in on the act last week with a brace at East Fife before Lawrence Shankland and Craig Moore took over.

It's a surprise they can be backed at close to evens and there's nothing to suggest they can't win again.

Queen's Park can win the bottom-of-the-table clash in Ladbrokes League One at Forfar.

The Angus side have a huge injury list with manager Jim Weir complaining last week about having up to ten players missing.

He also made it abundantly clear his players aren't performing for him.

The Hampden side appear to have turned a corner. They beat East Fife and pushed free-scoring Ayr United all the way at Somerset Park.

Gus MacPherson will fancy his side's chances of getting the points at Station Park against a team who have lost five in a row.
