Livingston 0-2 Raith Rovers

Rock-bottom Livingston suffered another damaging defeat as Raith Rovers cruised to a comfortable win.

Home striker Ibra Sekajja fired straight at keeper David McGurn early on before Ross Callachan's brilliant 25-yard strike gave Rovers the lead.

Lewis Vaughan made it two when he finished Barrie McKay's cut-back.

Raith's Mark Stewart rattled the bar with a long-range drive and Myles Hippolyte somehow headed wide to waste a golden chance for the hosts.
