Livingston must carry 'cup attitude' into league - Loy

Livingston must let off the "shackles" of their league position and approach Saturday's trip to Easter Road like they did their narrow cup defeat at Celtic, says Rory Loy.

"A couple of weeks ago I probably would have given Livingston no chance, but having watched them at Celtic Park, they were superb," he told BBC's Scottish Football Podcast.

"Tete Yengi was unbelievable last week. That lone striker role at Parkhead can be a lonely, lonely place - trust me, I've been there. You're running between he defenders and you're just getting no joy.

"He held the ball up, he took advantage of every situation that came his way and his finish was top notch.

"Given their performance last week, and the fact Hibs suffered disappointment midweek, I think Livingston can go there and get something. The nature of last week, they looked a real threat.

"No disrespect to Hibs, but they're not playing against the quality of Celtic. I think Livingston need to have that cup attitude. It feels like the shackles are on a bit in the league.

"If they go there with that mindset, I don't think they can get all three points, but they can nick one".
