Morton 1-1 Hamilton Academical

Michal Habai struck a second-half equaliser as Morton earned a draw against Championship leaders Hamilton.

Nacho Novo went close to marking his Morton debut with an early goal when his 20-yard effort crashed off the bar.

Jonathan Page had a header cleared off the line and Tomas Peciar hit the frame of the goal with a header of his own.

Tony Andreu made Morton pay for not taking their chances when he netted from a rebound after 33 minutes.

The Greenock side continued to press and grabbed a deserved equaliser as Habai's powerful header found the top corner.
