Greenock Morton won Scottish League One and promotion to the Championship after defeating Peterhead.

Morton started the day top, level on points with Forfar Athletic but with a superior goal difference.

However, the Greenock side fell behind to Gary McDonald's effort before Peterhead's Scott Ross was sent off.

Michael Miller, Mark Russell and Declan McManus netted for Morton and they took the title by two points after Ayr beat Forfar and Stranraer finished second.
