Greenock Morton 2-0 Stirling Albion

Andrew Barrowman and David McNeil hit the goals as Morton beat Stirling Albion to go third in League One.

Barrowman broke the deadlock with his second goal of the season, firing home from close range after keeper Callum Reidford saved Joe McKee's effort.

Stefan McCluskey almost made it 2-0 after the break but Lee Hamilton nodded his drive off the line.

McNeil made sure of the points late on, notching his first goal of the campaign from a few yards out.

The result leaves Stirling at the foot of the table.
