Mark McNulty and Keaghan Jacobs were on target at the Almondvale Stadium where Livingston beat lowly Falkirk 2-1 to collect only their second home win of the season.
McNulty grabbed his ninth goal of the season as the hosts opened the scoring midway through the first half.
Steven Scougall provided the assist on 23 as McNulty clinically fired the ball past visiting keeper Michael McGovern.
However, McGovern denied McNulty a second goal five minutes before the break saving well from the lively midfielder.
Falkirk came close to an equaliser early in the second half, when home keeper Andrew McNeil denied Blair Alston from long range.
But Livi added a second in the 65th minute when the ball broke kindly to Jacobs who took full advantage by driving a low shot beyond the arms of McGovern.
The latter pulled off another good save to deny the ubiquitous McNulty before the Bairns grabbed a consolation goal six minutes from time with a close range volley by Conor McGrandles at the far post.
Yet it came too little, too late, to save Falkirk who remain eighth in the ten-team Division One table.
