Greenock Morton 2-1 Livingston

Greenock Morton recovered from a goal down at home to beat Livingston, who remain second bottom.

Morton hit the bar through a Joe McKee volley before Sam Stanton's fine run led to a cool finish from Jordan White for Livi's opener.

Denny Johnstone's penalty and Thomas O'Ware header turned the match in the hosts' favour.

Livingston are still two points behind Dumbarton but the Sons now have two games in hand.
