Livingston manager Gary Holt missed Saturday's Scottish Premiership win over St Mirren after a weights session led to him being admitted to hospital.

Holt, 46, suffered an injury while training with his squad and will be monitored over the next couple of days.

Livingston expect him to take training on Monday, with assistant Davie Martindale in charge in the interim.

"Gary [Holt] was in the hospital on Wednesday," said Martindale after the 2-1 victory.

"He was quite confident that he was going to get out on Thursday. Then he was saying he would be out on Friday. Then he was confident he was going to be out today [Saturday].

"Our preparation never changed. It's the same most weeks. So when Gary told us that he wouldn't be here today we just got on with it."

Former Falkirk boss Holt replaced Kenny Miller at the West Lothian club 12 months ago.
