Greenock Morton 2-0 Livingston

Morton staved off relegation for another week thanks to goals from Dougie Imrie and Barrie McKay.

The Cappielow side, who are 11 points adrift at the foot of the table, started well and edged ahead through skipper Imrie.

McKay doubled the home side's lead before half-time, finishing after a fabulous Rowan Vine pass.

Livingston pushed hard to get back into it but could not find a way past Morton goalkeeper Derek Gaston.
