Dumbarton 1-0 Livingston

A late goal from Chris Kane gave Dumbarton their first league victory of the season with a win over Livingston.

Dumbarton had the better of the chances in a drab first half with a Colin Nish header going just wide.

After the break, Livi's Kyle Jacobs was closest to breaking the deadlock with a header slamming off the crossbar.

Visiting goalkeeper Darren Jamieson was forced into an array of impressive saves but he was unable to keep out Kane's 89th-minute headed winner.
