Dunfermline 0-4 Greenock Morton

Morton kept the promotion pace at the top of Scottish League One with a thumping win at Dunfermline.

Alex Whittle whistled the ball past the post early for the hosts, but soon Morton dominated.

Stefan McCluskey curled in a sublime finish, and right-back Lee Kilday slotted in from six yards to double the lead.

On-loan Declan McManus added a third and Mark Russell completed the rout when he beat goalkeeper Ryan Scully.
