Greenock Morton 1-6 Inverness Caledonian Thistle: Visitors stay top after thumping win

Inverness CT stayed top of the Scottish Championship as they thumped Greenock Morton at Cappielow.

The result came after the visitors had threatened to pull out of the game following a row over dressing room and toilet facilities.

Aaron Doran, Shane Sutherland and Billy McKay gave the Highlanders a 3-0 lead.

Gozie Ugwu pulled one back with a penalty but Reece McAlear, Sutherland's second, and a Lewis Jamieson goal gave Inverness an emphatic victory.

The game had been in doubt after Inverness complained about being asked to use portable cabins, with manager Billy Dodds describing them as "not fit for vermin" following a penalty shoot-out defeat on Tuesday in the Scottish Cup.
