Match ends, Forfar Athletic 3, Morton 2.
Forfar Athletic 3-2 Greenock Morton
Forfar Athletic survived a late comeback from Greenock Morton to record a home win.
Gavin Swankie swept the hosts ahead, but Declan McManus levelled for Morton.
Danny Denholm made it 2-1 to the Loons, then Forfar looked to have the game wrapped up when Swankie fired in with an expert finish.
However, Morton set up a nervy last few minutes when substitute Reece Hands pulled one back from close range, but the hosts held on.
