Greenock Morton 1-0 Livingston

Greenock Morton won their third Scottish Championship match in a row as Denny Johnstone's early penalty gave them victory over Livingston.

Conor Pepper was brought down by Jackson Longridge and referee Craig Charleston pointed to the spot.

Johnstone sent goalkeeper Marc McCallum the wrong way to score from 12 yards.

Liam Buchanan spurned a fine chance to draw Livingston level, team-mate Jordan White headed over and Jordyn Sheerin fired wide for the visitors.
