WINS for Livingston, Queen of the South, Hamilton and Raith as Dumbarton and Cowdenbeath play out a goalless draw.

Alloa 0 - 3 Queen of the South

The visitors leapfrogged Cowdenbeath after putting three past Alloa at Recreation Park. Iain Russell opened the scoring after 16 minutes, before adding to his tally on 71 minutes. Gavin Reilly added a third four minutes later.

Dumbarton 0-0 Cowdenbeath

The Sons and the Blue Brazil cancelled each other out in this energetic match, which saw Jordan Kirkpatrick hit the bar in the first half. Mitch Megginson was also denied by the woodwork in the second half, after Kane Hemmings had gone close for Cowdenbeath.

Hamilton 2-0 Falkirk

Hamilton extended their lead at the top of the Championship table to four points, thanks to goals from Anthony Andreu and Louis Longridge - and Livingston’s late winner against Dundee. Andreu’s 21st minute strike gave the Accies the lead, with Longridge - just on the park after replacing Andreu - sealing the three points in the closing minutes.

Livingston 2-1 Dundee

Livingston came from behind to win this match, after Peter MacDonald had given the visitors a 54th-minute lead. Former Hibs midfielder Martin Scott was the hero for Livi, coming off the bench to net the winner two minutes from time after Keaghan Jacobs had cancelled out MacDonald’s strike.

Raith Rovers 2-1 Morton

Kevin Moon’s goal on the stroke of half-time gave Raith the lead, but former Starks Park striker Nacho Novo looked to have dealt his former employers a blow with a 70th minute equaliser for Morton, but ex-Hearts midfielder Gordon Smith, on as a substitute with ten minutes left, netted the winner to keep Raith in touch with the league leaders
