Dumbarton 1-0 Livingston

Dumbarton eased their Championship relegation worries with victory at home to Livingston.

Mark Docherty's 56th-minute corner went straight in as the hosts claimed a first league win in five games to move six points clear of the bottom two.

Marc McCallum was in fine form in the Livi goal, denying Dumbarton a second.

The visitors had a chance to level but Dumbarton goalkeeper Jamie Ewings saved well from Liam Buchanan with the resulting corner cleared off the line.
