Livingston 2-0 Alloa Athletic

Alloa Athletic were left to rue a first-half penalty miss as they were defeated by Livingston.

The Wasps' Ryan McCord had his spot-kick saved after Ben Gordon had been fouled by Danny Denholm.

Livi then won a penalty of their own when Marc McNulty was felled and the striker tucked away from 12 yards.

And the home side made sure of the points late on when Keaghan Jacobs got the break of the ball to fire home from the edge of the box.
