Livingston cruised to victory over Alloa Athletic despite having Simon Mensing sent off.

Mensing fired home Livi's opener before the break but he was dismissed after the break following a challenge on new Alloa signing Derek Riordan.

Martin Scott's long-range effort doubled the visitors' advantage as the match entered its final stages.

And Keaghan Jacobs added a third, finishing into the bottom corner with four minutes left.
