Livingston 1-0 Cowdenbeath

Jason Talbot's first goal of the season was enough to give Livingston victory over Cowdenbeath.

Nejc Mevlja went close to giving the home side an early lead but his left-foot shot drifted inches wide.

Chris Kane, Rory McKeown and Jamie Stevenson came close for Cowden but they could not find the net.

The winner came midway through the second half when Michal Habai crossed for Talbot to drill into the net from close range.
