Livingston 2-3 Raith Rovers

Raith Rovers claimed a entertaining win away to Livingston following a scintillating final 10 minutes.

Livingston were awarded a penalty after 43 minutes when Laurence Ellis was ruled to have handled. Liam Fox stepped up and smashed his spot kick into the top right corner.

The visitors had the better of the early second-half chances, with McNeil pulling off a string of saves notably stopping Joseph Cardle's close range effort.

Rovers restored their advantage with 10 minutes remaining. Brian Graham managed to lose Paul Watson at the far post, heading Patrick Clarke's cross back into the bottom-right corner.

Iain Russell fired Livingston level with a close-range effort following a goalmouth scramble.

But the hosts found themselves behind again almost immediately, with a dreadful error from McNeil allowing Graham in to put away his second of the game.
