Sib­baled ready to put les­sons into prac­tice

Evening Times - - SPORT -

CRAIG SIBBALD has been watch­ing and learn­ing as he bides his time for a place in Liv­ingston’s start­ing line-up.

The for­mer Falkirk mid­fielder needed a her­nia op­er­a­tion soon af­ter join­ing the Lad­brokes Premier­ship new­com­ers and has been re­stricted to two starts for his new club.

But Sibbald earned praise from man­ager Gary Holt af­ter com­ing on in the 38th minute of Liv­ingston’s 2-0 de­feat by Kilmarnock on Wed­nes­day and is in con­tention to start at home to St Mir­ren to­day.

“It started off with an in­jury but the boys have been do­ing re­ally well so it’s been a strug­gle to get in the start­ing XI,” he said. “It’s all about watch­ing and learn­ing be­cause this is ob­vi­ously a new team for me. You have to take in as much as pos­si­ble.”
