Morton 3-2 Falkirk

Scottish Football League

Peter MacDonald's double was the difference as Morton prevailed in an end-to-end encounter against Falkirk.

MacDonald gave the hosts an early lead with a header from Sean Fitzharris' delivery, but David Weatherston volleyed in an equaliser soon after.

Blair Alston then stroked the Bairns into a half-time lead.

MacDonald powered in a penalty after a trip on Andy Jackson and Jackson later headed home a Fitzharris cross to keep the Greenock side top of the table.
