Lawless grabs double for Partick

Steven Lawless struck a brace for Partick as they defeated Livingston 2-1 to stay at the top of the Scottish First Division.

Partick went ahead 10 minutes before half-time thanks to Lawless, who hit an unstoppable drilled shot from 20 yards that gave the goalkeeper no chance.

A remarkable two minute spell followed, in which the woodwork was hit three times. First, Chris Erskine's effort cannoned back of a post after 38 minutes for Partick. A minute later, Livingston's Jordan Morton's fierce 25-yard effort struck a post, and less than a minute afterwards, Iain Russell's effort did the same for the home side.

Lawless doubled the lead after 48 minutes, sweeping in Hugh Murray's pass, and Morton pulled one back after 59 minutes, slamming home from 12 yards.
