Gary Glen scores a free-kick for Livingston against St Mirren
Gary Glen scored a free-kick as Livi routed St Mirren

Liam Buchanan scored twice as Livingston moved above St Mirren and sent Alex Rae's side into the relegation play-off spot.

Buchanan escaped his marker to tap in Livi's opener and Ben Gordon knocked in the visitors' second.

The Buddies pulled one back through Lawrence Shankland's strike before the half-time interval.

But Gary Glen's free-kick and another goal from Buchanan made sure of a thumping win for manager-less Livi.
