Ayr United 1-1 Greenock Morton

Peter MacDonald marked his return to Morton with a goal that earned the Greenock side a point.

The hosts moved ahead when Grant Adam punched a corner to Morgyn Neill, who lifted a shot beyond the goalkeeper.

However, just two minutes after the break Morton were level as MacDonald, who returned to the club this week, applied a cool finish.

Thomas O'Ware had a great chance to win it for the visitors but nodded over the bar.
