Greenock Morton 0-1 Peterhead

James Stevenson scored early in the second half as Peterhead edged past hosts Greenock Morton.

The visitors would have taken an early lead but for a fantastic save from Derek Gaston to deny Mark Millar.

Gaston had to be alert to keep out Rory McAllister's header before Blue Toon keeper Graeme Smith did well to save from Joe Scullion at the other end.

Stevenson's crisp drive broke the deadlock and he had another effort saved by Gaston late on.
