Raith Rovers 2-4 Livingston

Marc McNulty bagged a brace as Livingston cruised past Raith Rovers.

Craig Sives headed the visitors in front but Raith drew level immediately after the break when John Baird flicked in a delivery from Grant Anderson.

Livi regained the lead from the penalty spot when McNulty converted after being brought down by Joseph Cardle.

Sives added his second before Jason Thomson's strike restored some hope for the hosts but McNulty completed the scoring deep into stoppage time.
