Livingston hold on to take spoils
Livingston are up to fourth in the First Division after a 2-1 victory over Falkirk.
Marc McNulty and Keaghan Jacobs scored the goals to secure Livingston's second home league win of the campaign.
McNulty was found in the area by Stefan Scougall's pass in the 23rd minute and the forward tucked away his ninth goal of the season into the bottom corner.
Livingston goalkeeper Andrew McNeil tipped away Blair Alston's 35-yard effort in the second half as Falkirk looked for a leveller.
But Jacobs made it two in the 65th minute with a low finish from 12 yards.
Conor McGrandles pulled a goal back with six minutes left with a well-taken volley at the back post to score his first goal for the club.
But Livingston held on to take the three points and move above Raith in the table.
