Alloa Athletic 2-2 Greenock Morton

Rock-bottom Alloa picked up their third draw of the season as they came from two goals down to draw 2-2 at home to Morton.

Declan McManus headed Morton in front with the first of three goals in five minutes.

Stefan McCluskey sent a rasping effort across the goalkeeper and into the far corner to double Morton's lead.

Alloa hit back almost immediately through Colin Hamilton, before Dougie Hill's 71st minute leveller.

Morton looked the side more likely to snatch a winner but Alloa weathered the storm.
