Morton denied Inverness the chance to move second in the Scottish Championship after two goals from Bob McHugh's at Cappielow.

The opening goal was a delightful lob from McHugh; breaking the offside trap, enticing Mark Ridgers from his line and dinking the ball over him.

But ICT were level with a ferocious volley from a narrow angle from Mitchell Curry.

McHugh popped up to snatch a late winner as Morton moved up to seventh.
