Mallan struck St Mirren's winner

St Mirren left Livingston with all three points after securing a narrow Scottish Championship victory.

Jack Baird fouled Liam Buchanan to give Livi a penalty early on but the striker's spot-kick came back off the post.

Scott Agnew then set up Stephen Mallan to fire the Buddies in front from outside the box.

Bottom place Livi pressed hard in pursuit of parity and Jordyn Sheerin came close with three efforts.
