Second Division league leaders Livingston ran out convincing winners against a sometimes tired-looking Dumbarton at the Strathclyde Homes Stadium this afternoon.

After a huge effort in the 3-3 draw away to Brechin on Tuesday night, the last in a series of midweek games, Sons struggled to contain Livi, despite bright starts in both halves and fine goal efforts from Jon McShane and Andy Geggan.

Keaghan Jacobs and Iain Russell struck for the visitors on 5 and 7 minutes respectively, and then substitute Liam Fox claimed the crucial third goal to kill off the game on 69 minutes.

The result leaves Dumbarton in eighth spot. The Sons now have a week to prepare for the away trip to Stenhousemuir next Saturday, followed a week later by the visit of East Fife.
