Greenock Morton 2-0 Dunfermline

Greenock Morton beat Dunfermline at Cappielow to move within two points of Scottish League One leaders Stranraer.

Pars goalkeeper Ryan Scully pushed away a header from Thomas O'Ware, with the third-place hosts on top.

Ross Caldwell's low finish put Morton ahead on 67 minutes and, soon after, home keeper Derek Gaston had to parry an Andy Barrowman header.

Caldwell then turned provider for Peter MacDonald to make it 2-0 with a drilled shot.
