Greenock Morton 1-5 Livingston

Marc McNulty scored a hat-trick as Livingston humbled Greenock Morton, who shortly after full-time.

McNulty's low finish put Livi ahead but Kabba-Modou Cham's header levelled.

Andrew Barrowman's curling effort put the visitors ahead again and Martin Scott soon nodded their third.

McNulty converted a penalty following Jonathan Page's foul on Keaghan Jacobs and the striker netted his third after Cham was sent off for violent conduct.
