Livingston 0-1 Raith Rovers

Martin Scott's first-half goal gave Raith Rovers a narrow Scottish Championship victory against Livingston at Almondvale.

Scott connected with Ryan Conroy's pass to edge Raith in front.

The visitors had a chance to double their lead after Craig Sives fouled Christian Nade in the penalty area but Calum Elliot's spot-kick was saved.

Livi pressed for a leveller in the second half but Jordan White's stoppage-time header was blocked.
