Livingston held Inverness Caledonian Thistle to a draw after the hosts had Iain Vigurs red-carded.

Aaron Doran's low strike put Inverness ahead and the winger almost scored again when his cross hit the bar.

Vigurs had already been booked when he was penalised for a high boot on Dylan Mackin and the midfielder's second yellow card resulted in his dismissal.

The home side kept their lead until late in the game when Alan Lithgow headed home Raffaele De Vita's cross.

However, third-placed Livi's lead over Dunfermline Athletic has been cut to one point after the Pars beat Falkirk while Caley Thistle remain seventh, now five points outside the promotion play-off places.
