Livingston 1-2 Dumbarton

Chris Kane netted the winner as Dumbarton came from behind to beat 10-man Livingston.

Nejc Mevlja latched on to Keaghan Jacobs' corner to score his first goal for Livi but the hosts were reduced to 10 men for the final eight minutes.

Jason Talbot saw red for a foul on Paul McGinn and Chris Turner converted a penalty for the Sons following a Craig Sives foul on Kane.

Kane then fired home to secure all three points for Dumbarton.
