Raith Rovers 2-1 Greenock Morton

Raith Rovers stretched their unbeaten Scottish Championship run to nine games with victory over bottom club Morton.

Jason Thomson's pass set up Kevin Moon for Raith's opener and Liam Fox and Grant Anderson had further chances for the hosts.

However, Nacho Novo headed Morton level with his first goal for the club.

As the match entered injury time, Gordon Smith struck to give the Kirkcaldy side all three points at Stark's Park.
