Raith Rovers 2-1 Greenock Morton

Jason Thomson's injury time goal earned Raith a dramatic win over Morton in the Championship.

Thomson's low shot from close range cut short the visitors' celebrations after Thomas O'Ware looked to have earned them a point with a late equaliser.

O'Ware's header from Bobby Barr's corner cancelled out Mark Stewart's low opener.

Victory for Raith - their fourth in a row in the league- moved them up to second.
