Raith Rovers 0-1 Alloa Athletic

A late Iain Flannigan penalty gave Scottish Championship bottom side Alloa Athletic victory over promotion hopefuls Raith Rovers.

Flannigan converted the spot-kick after being fouled by Iain Davidson with only a few minutes left.

Raith's Mitch Megginson had headed wide in the first half and Alloa striker Isaac Layne came close with a couple of efforts.

The result moves Alloa to within four points of Livingston.
