Greenock Morton 2-0 Dumbarton

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.
