Greenock Morton 0-2 Brechin City

Greenock Morton lost ground in the race for the Scottish League One title as Brechin City won to stay inside the promotion play-off zone.

Brechin goalkeeper Graeme Smith made saves to deny Declan McManus, Declan McManus and Thomas O'Ware.

And his efforts were rewarded when Bobby Barr netted a penalty after being tripped by Lee Kilday.

Jamie Masson's free-kick made sure of the points for the visitors, as Morton slipped to third in the table.
