Alloa Athletic 0-1 Greenock Morton

Thomas O'Ware's second-half header was enough to extend Morton's undefeated run to three games with a narrow win over bottom side Alloa Athletic.

The visitors started brightest and came close to scoring an opener through Stefan McCluskey, Ross Forbes, Denny Johnstone and Bobby Barr.

Morton keeper Grant Adam denied Michael Chopra and Mark Williams.

But defender O'Ware headed home Ricki Lamie's cross to clinch all three points for the Greenock side.
