Livingston 3-2 Alloa Athletic

Andrew Barrowman's last-minute strike ensured that Livingston returned to winning ways in a dramatic gave against Alloa Athletic.

Stefan Scougall fired into the bottom corner for Livi after two minutes, but Kevin Cawley replied from close range.

Coll Donaldson headed in a Scougall cross after the break.

Ben Gordon found the top corner three minutes from time, but Barrowman's low finish past goalkeeper Scott Bain restored Livingston's lead.

Bain had been Alloa's hero in the first half, keeping them level at the interval with saves from Marc McNulty and Jason Talbot.
