Morton scored a late double as they recorded a comfortable Scottish League Cup victory over Montrose.

The Championship side dominated the first half but the visitors almost broke the deadlock when Lloyd Young lashed an effort against the crossbar.

Morton's Kabba-Modou Cham fired home and Marc Fitzpatrick headed a second from close range.

Reece Hands and Aidan Fulton both converted from inside the penalty area as Morton marched into the third round.
