Alloa Athletic 1-0 Livingston

Newly-promoted Alloa Athletic beat 10-man Livingston in the Scottish Championship.

Stephen Simmons rifled home from 10 yards to give the Wasps the lead just before half-time.

Marc McNulty could have equalised for Livi but his effort was straight at goalkeeper Scott Bain.

And the visitors' hopes were further dented when Ross Docherty picked up a second booking, resulting in a red card.
