Match ends, Morton 2, Dumbarton 0.
Mark McLaughlin's first league goal of the season helped bottom club Morton overcome Dumbarton.
Ex-Rangers striker Nacho Novo hit the post when through one-on-one with Jamie Ewings and also had a goal disallowed for offside in the Championship clash.
Morton took a deserved lead after an hour when McLaughlin headed home from a free kick by Dougie Imrie.
Novo hit the post again after 67 minutes before Tomas Peciar headed in another Imrie cross late on.
