Nikolay Todorov fired Livingston into the lead against Inverness Caley Thistle

Livingston prolonged Inverness Caley Thistle's poor start to life in the Championship with a comfortable win in the Highlands.

Nikolay Todorov gave Livi the lead with a neat finish from a Josh Mullin delivery but Connor Bell replied almost immediately, lashing the ball home.

The visitors were in front again after the break when Scott Robinson turned home Dylan Mackin's delivery.

And Craig Halkett smashed a stunning effort into the top corner to win it.

Caley Thistle have picked up only four points from their first six matches, while Livi have taken nine points.
