Raith Rovers 3-0 Livingston

Raith Rovers opened their Championship campaign with a comfortable victory over Livingston.

The visitors, who avoided relegation last season on goal difference, were behind inside 10 minutes when Mark Stewart slotted home.

Ryan McCord then tucked away a penalty after a foul on Stewart.

Substitute Mitch Megginson grabbed a stoppage-time goal, turning smartly before firing past visiting goalkeeper Darren Jamieson.
