Vaulks shines as Falkirk win

Will Vaulks set up a goal before getting on the score-sheet as Falkirk won 2-1 at Livingston in the Ladbrokes Scottish Championship.

Falkirk's Mark Kerr was denied early on before Luke Leahy's fine volley opened the scoring for the visitors after 16 minutes. Defender Vaulks sent a diagonal cross into the box which Leahy controlled with his chest before firing past Darren Jamieson.

Dan Mullen equalised for Livingston early in the second period, reacting quickest after a scramble in the box to convert thanks to a slight deflection off a Falkirk defender in the 52nd minute.

The Bairns regained their lead just 10 minutes later, Vaulks following up a rebound for his second of the season.

Mullen saw his header saved well by Danny Rogers before John Baird and Peter Grant pulled further chances wide for the visitors.

Jordyn Sheerin failed to hit the target late on for Livi as Peter Houston's men continued their unbeaten start.
