Greenock Morton 0-0 Airdrieonians

Joe McKee was sent off for Greenock Morton as they held on to draw with Airdrieonians in the Scottish Cup.

McKee was sent off less than 20 minutes into the second half after a dangerous tackle on Airdrie's Luca Gasparotto.

Liam Watt had nearly fired the visitors into an early lead, Derek Gaston saving his effort from point-blank range.

At the other end, Andy McNeil denied Stefan McCluskey and Conor Pepper in quick succession. Pepper and Airdrie's James Lister had other shots saved.

The two sides will meet again in Airdrie on 11 November.
