Cowdenbeath 1-2 Livingston

Jordan White boosted Livingston's survival bid with a second-half double as they came from behind to win at fellow strugglers Cowdenbeath.

Nat Wedderburn crashed in a volley for the Blue Brazil on 47 minutes.

Livingston hit back when Myles Hippolyte crossed for White to head in at the far post and Danny Mullen struck the post as the visitors pressed.

And they were rewarded after 80 minutes when White turned his marker before firing past home keeper Robbie Thomson.

White's brace clinched back-to-back league wins for bottom side Livi, who are now five points behind today's opponents with two games in hand.

Cowdenbeath almost took an early lead when Colin Marshall's free-kick from 25 yards struck the crossbar.

And the biggest talking point of the first half came late on when referee Crawford Allan appeared to award Livingston a penalty but, after consulting his linesman, he instead gave a free-kick to the home side.
