Livingston promoted to the Premiership

Sunday 20th May 2018

Livingston have been promoted to the Ladbrokes Premiership at the expense of Partick Thistle after winning the play-off final.

David Hopkin's side led 2-1 from the first leg on Thursday and claimed a 1-0 victory at The Energy Check Stadium at Firhill in front of 7,122 fans.

Midfielder Keaghan Jacobs grabbed the only goal with a fine finish just 30 seconds into the second half and Livi keeper Neil Alexander saved a late penalty from Conor Sammon as the Jags' five-year top-flight stay came to an end.

The win caps remarkable back-to-back promotions for Livingston, who can now look forward to Premiership football for the first time since 2005/06.
