Hop­kin de­lighted with dis­play

West Lothian Courier - - Sports View -

Livi head coach David Hop­kin was full of praise for his side after their vic­tory over Falkirk.

The win keeps the club’s re­mark­able un­beaten away league run in 2017 go­ing and the boss hailed his play­ers for get­ting through a chal­leng­ing week.

He said:“We had In­ver­ness away last week and then Hibs on Tues­day night.

“I’d told the boys I’d be pick­ing three sep­a­rate teams and they bought into it.

“I thought we were mag­nif­i­cent against Falkirk, es­pe­cially the young lads. James Pen­rice is a left-back and I’ve asked him to come in and play cen­tre-mid and he’s done a great job. His read­ing for the first goal was great and he’s shown bril­liant com­po­sure to find Danny.

“I’m a wee bit miffed that Jacko’s goal didn’t count in the first half if I’m hon­est be­cause I thought it was a great header.

“The play­ers have given me ev­ery­thing and that’s all I ever want.

“I think we dealt with ev­ery­thing they threw at us and to be hon­est I’d have been de­lighted be­fore the game to get a point.

“To get two goals and the win is a great vic­tory for us.”
