Greenock Morton 0-1 Livingston

Danny Mullen's second-half goal was enough to give Livingston victory away to Greenock Morton in the Scottish Championship.

Scott Pittman went close for the visitors when he got on the end of Mullen's cross but his diving header narrowly missed the target.

Morton's Bob McHugh forced a smart save from visiting goalkeeper Neil Alexander in the second half.

Mullen then poked the ball past Derek Gaston and Morton could not recover.
