Livingston are promoted to Scottish Championship after win over Alloa

Livingston secured promotion to the Ladbrokes Scottish Championship with a 2-1 home win over nearest rivals Alloa which also won them the League One title.

Leaders Livi had gone into the game needing just a point to go up and they did enough despite a nervous finish.

Livingston went ahead after 16 minutes through Scott Pittman who hit a rising shot from distance into the top corner.

Jackson Longridge doubled their lead four minutes into the second half when he curled in a shot after cutting in from the left wing onto his right foot.

But Dylan Mackin's goal after 67 minutes ensured a nervous finish for the home fans before the celebrations could begin.

Iain Russell scored twice as Airdrie beat Brechin 3-1 to move into third place and strengthen their play-off hopes.

Russell put Airdrie in front after 20 minutes when Kyle Hutton won possession and teed up the captain to score and Kieran MacDonald doubled the advantage three minutes later.

Jack Leitch's own goal in first half injury time put Brechin back into the match but Russell made it 3-1 to Airdrie with his second goal 11 minutes into the second period.

Stenhousemuir boosted their survival hopes with a 3-1 home win over East Fife as Willie Furtado scored twice.

Furtado gave Stenhousemuir the lead just before half-time but Chris Kane drew the visitors level early in the second period.

Colin McMenamin's penalty just after the hour put Stenhousemuir back in front and Furtado got his second with 11 minutes to go to make it 3-1.

Paul Willis, Ryan Wallace and a Morgyn Neill own goal gave Albion a 3-0 home win over Stranraer.

Queen's Park defeated Peterhead 2-0 with goals from on-loan Hearts forward Dario Zanatta and Ryan McGeever.
