Dundee United 1-1 Greenock Morton

Fraser Fyvie scores for Dundee United
Fraser Fyvie's injury-time drive rescued a draw for Dundee United at home to Morton

Fit-again club captain Fraser Fyvie salvaged a point for Dundee United with a 93rd-minute strike against Morton.

The former Hibernian midfielder made his first Championship outing since a December knee injury, coming off the bench to rifle in the leveller.

Michael Tidser have given Morton an early lead from the penalty spot after Rachid Bouhenna fouled Gregor Buchanan.

The Terrors pressed hard to equalise, but it took Fyvie's injury-time intervention to secure a draw.

Both teams sit on eight points after five league matches, occupying fifth and sixth place respectively.

Dundee United manager Csaba Laszlo: "If you have this kind of game when the opponent goes in front very quickly and in the end you make it 1-1, you are not satisfied, because we were in the attacking shape for 80-90 minutes.

"Our goalkeeper didn't really have anything to do. But it is difficult if the opponent is just defending, maintaining 11 people deep. We deserved more than one point and I can't give a negative comment about the team because everybody tried their best."

Morton manager Jonatan Johansson: "When it settles down we can take a lot of positives. We started really well, nice organisation, got the goal.

"We had two or three chances on the counter and a second goal would have killed the game. But all in all, I'm pleased."
