Greenock Morton 1-2 Dundee

Dundee forward Craig Beattie

Dundee moved joint-top of the Scottish Championship with victory against bottom side Greenock Morton.

Craig Beattie's strike put the visitors ahead and Declan Gallacher headed Dundee's second before half-time.

Dougie Imrie finished neatly past Kyle Letheren with more than half-an-hour remaining to give Morton hope.

But the home side could not find a leveller, meaning Dundee moved level on points with Hamilton, who have an inferior goal difference.
