An entertaining top-of-the-table clash saw Livingston maintain their lead on top of the Scottish First Division with a 3-1 win over Partick.

The Lions took the lead in bizarre fashion in the sixth minute when a wayward Calum Elliot shot ricocheted off Murray Davidson and looped over Jonny Tuffey into the back of the net.

The home side extended their lead minutes later as Paul Paton gave the ball away in defence allowing Joe Hamill to cross for Elliot to fire home from close range.

Ian Maxwell dragged his side back into the match as the Jag's skipper took advantage from close range when Livingston struggled to clear their lines form a corner.

Elliot grabbed his second of the match when he converted a Rocco Quinn cross from close range with 10 minutes remaining.
