Dumbarton 1-2 Greenock Morton

Dumbarton slipped into the bottom two of the Championship after a home defeat by Morton.

Morton opened the scoring after when Joe McKee netted from a corner.

Dumbarton were back in the game when Darren Barr levelled with a shot into the top corner.

However, Denny Johnstone was in the right place to secure the victory to leave Morton sitting in sixth in the division and well-placed to challenge for a place in the play-offs.
