Greenock Morton 3-1 Stenhousemuir

Morton stretched their winning run to four games against Stenhousemuir to remain at the summit of League Two.

Lee Kilday found the top corner with a shot on 15 minutes and added a second 10 minutes before the break, slotting home a low strike.

Sean Dickson pulled one back following a good spell for the visitors.

But Morton put the result beyond doubt in the 87th minute when substitute Stefan McCluskey finished from the centre of the penalty area.
