Livingston 2-0 Dumbarton: Match Report
Livingston boost survival hopes with win against fellow strugglers Dumbarton
Livingston moved to within one point of Dumbarton in the Scottish Championship after a 2-0 win at Almondvale Stadium.
Liam Buchanan glanced a header wide before he put his side ahead in the 29th minute, capitalising after Dumbarton failed to clear.
Sons striker Calum Waters forced a decent save from Livi keeper Marc McCallum, who then did well to keep out Tom Walsh's effort.
Dumbarton keeper Jamie Ewings thwarted Buchanan just before half-time, with Jordan White wrapping up the points with seven minutes remaining.
It was only Livi's second win in 10 attempts and they are now just one point behind eighth-placed Dumbarton in the battle to avoid the drop.
