Stenhousemuir 2-3 Greenock Morton

Morton boosted their Scottish League One title hopes after coming from behind to beat Stenhousemuir in a thrilling second half.

After a drab first half Colin McMenamin fired the home side in front after Grant Adam could only parry a shot.

Jamie McCluskey set up his brother Stefan to equalise two minutes later and Thomas O'Ware put Morton in front.

Ross Caldwell slotted home on his debut for the Ton's third and McMenamin pulled one back with a late penalty.
