Greenock Morton 2-1 Dunfermline Athletic

Greenock Morton secured their first Scottish Championship win of the season to move above opponents Dunfermline as well as Dumbarton into seventh.

Gary Oliver skipped past a couple of challenges before driving low for Morton's opener.

The Pars soon levelled on the half-hour, Callum Fordyce's shot deflected into the net by Nicky Clark.

With time running out, Jai Quitongo settled the match with a spectacular effort off the underside of the bar.
