Greenock Morton 0-1 Airdrieonians

James Lister scored the only goal as Airdrieonians stopped Morton from going second in the League One table.

Ben Richards and Nathan Blockley had early chance for the visitors but Ton's trialist goalkeeper produced fine saves to deny them.

He was unable to thwart Lister after the break, though, as he converted Blockley's cross from close range.

The hosts almost grabbed a leveller through Declan McManus but his drive came back off the bar.

The victory extends Airdrie's unbeaten run to five matches, moving them four points off the play-off spots.
