Lions Roar Back Into The Top-Flight.

Lions Roar Back Into The Top-Flight.

The Lions have only gone and defied the odds, proved people wrong at every corner and are back in the top flight.
Their long ball style of play has seen them rise through the leagues from League 1 to clinching the second spot in the second tier of Scottish Football – and now a spot in the Scottish Premier League – the football might not be the best for some people to watch, but many of the supporters won’t care about that when they are playing in the top flight week in week out testing themselves against the best this wonderful country has to offer.
They use whatever they have in the arsenal to their advantage, wherever, it is big players for corners and long-throws, they use it to the best of their ability.
The goal Livingston scored today was a thing of beauty as Jacobs broke the deadlock 35 seconds into the second half – Jacob’s last three goals have been scored against Thistle clearly saves his best for the Jags –  as he smashes it into the bottom left corner.
And it was enough to end the Jags five-year stay in the Premier League along with ending the Lions 12 year wait to be back in the big time.
What a magnificent job Hopkins has done, when they got relegated, he just changed the team, the tactics, brought a lot of new people in.
What a hell of a season for Livingston and there must be some amount of spirit and belief within the dressing room, right now.
It put simply is a modern fairytale for a team like Livingston.

The goal-scorer Jacobs speaking to BBC Scotland:
“I am just glad I could help the team. The boys have been magnificent.
“That epitomizes the season we have had. It has been unreal.
“This means everything. To be going into the top league, especially with this bunch of boys, it is a magnificent feeling.”
And David Hopkins said:
“It’s everything! I didn’t expect it to happen and this is the hardest way to go up.
“We do things the hard way here, but I’ve got to give great credit to the players. Lee Miller is 35… and he ran out of legs! We had to put midfielders on and defenders on and we were hanging on.
“We scored a fantastic goal after half-time and I told them [at the break] ‘you’re 45 minutes away from the Premiership; if you can’t dig deep just now then you’re in for a long season next year’.
“The players were magnificent for me.”
Fun fact to end it on: Falkirk will be the only team in the Championship next season with a one word name.
