Morton 0-0 Falkirk

Falkirk missed the opportunity to move to within three points of Scottish First Division leaders Ross County after drawing at Morton.

Derek Young's close-range header from Peter MacDonald's cross went over as Morton threatened early on.

At the other end, Colin Stewart produced a brilliant reflex save to tip Jordan White's header over.

Morton were awarded a penaly early in the second half when Tam Scobbie was adjuded to have handled but MacDonald's weak spot-kick was saved by Michael McGovern.
