Will Vaulks got Falkirk's winner

Will Vaulks set up a goal before netting the winner as Falkirk beat Livingston in the Scottish Championship.

Falkirk's Mark Kerr was denied early on before Luke Leahy's fine volley from Vaulks' cross opened the scoring.

Danny Mullen equalised for Livi early in the second period, reacting quickest after a scramble in the box.

But Vaulks blasted in to secure victory for the Bairns and take them to within two points of the league's summit.
