Cowdenbeath 3-0 Greenock Morton

Scottish Championship bottom side Greenock Morton slipped 16 points behind Cowdenbeath with defeat at Central Park.

Kyle Miller nodded Cowden ahead early in the match.

Morton were reduced to 10 men when Rowan Vine was sent off for violent conduct.

And strikes by Greg Stewart and Miller compounded the visitors' misery as the home side moved to within four points of safety.
