Scottish Cup: Albion Rovers 0-2 Greenock Morton

Denny Johnstone scored his ninth goal of the season as Greenock Morton beat Albion Rovers in the third round of the Scottish Cup.

Visiting goalkeeper Grant Adam denied Alistair Love before Johnstone latched on to Bobby Barr's low cross and slotted in from close range.

Rovers goalkeeper Ross Stewart denied Johnstone a second with a good save.

But the Championship side secured the win late on when Joe McKee's effort was deflected past Stewart.
