Livingston 1-0 Hamilton

Marc McNulty (l) turns away after scoring the winner for Livingston

Livingston leapfrogged Hamilton to move in to third place in the First Division with a hard-fought win in West Lothian.

Rory Boulding's great cross found Marc McNulty who headed the 52nd-minute winner into the bottom corner.
