Greenock Morton 1-2 Queen of the South

Callum Fordyce
Callum Fordyce's goal was enough to give Queen of the South the three points

Queen of the South came from behind to beat Greenock Morton at Cappielow.

Gary Harkins sent Queen's goalkeeper Alan Martin the wrong way to slot a penalty in the bottom-left corner after Jason Kerr clipped Bob McHugh in the box.

Stephen Dobbie latched on to Darren Brownlie's intelligent flick-on before lashing home on the half volley.

And Callum Fordyce completed the turnaround at the start of the second half.

The win keeps Queen of the South in touch with the leading pack in fifth, while Morton remain sixth but are now five points behind the visitors.
