Raith Rovers 0-4 Livingston

Livingston moved off bottom and into the relegation play-off place with a resounding victory over Raith Rovers in the Scottish Championship.

Mark Burchill's side took the lead when Callum Fordyce's looping header just crossed the line.

Fordyce then put Kevin Cuthbert under pressure and the goalkeeper's punch left Craig Sives with a simple tap-in.

Danny Mullen netted from a Fordyce header before Craig Barr's own goal completed the scoring.

Raith missed a late penalty, Darren Jamieson denying Lewis Vaughan after the substitute had been fouled by Declan Gallagher.

Though Livi move level on points with Alloa Athletic, the Wasps prop up the table due to an inferior goal difference.

Cowdenbeath, who face Alloa while Livingston host Queen of the South in next week's final round of league fixtures, are a point clear of the bottom two sides.
