Livingston 2-1 Falkirk

Danny Mullen scored twice as Scottish Championship bottom side Livingston moved to within three points of Alloa Athletic by beating Falkirk.

Promotion play-off hopefuls Falkirk levelled from the penalty spot, John Baird converting after Callum Fordyce had fouled Craig Sibbald.

Baird fired against the frame of the goal before Mullen headed what proved to be the winner.
