Match ends, Partick Thistle 2, Morton 1.
Substitute Shea Gordon scored twice for 10-man Partick Thistle as they beat Morton to record their first home Scottish Championship win since April.
The midfielder had only been on the pitch 30 seconds when he struck low into the corner.
The lead lasted two minutes as Jack Baird levelled, but Gordon slid in the winner five minutes later.
Thistle, who had Stuart Bannigan sent off at 0-0, are still bottom but are now just two points behind Morton.
Ian McCall's side played a 3-5-2 and were unlucky not to be leading at half-time, with Kenny Miller blasting over from a few yards out and Sean McGinty's header hitting the crossbar.
Morton have lost all seven of their away league games this season.
'I'm embarrassed' - reaction
Partick Thistle manager Ian McCall: "It was great to hear Firhill rocking, it really was. I was pleased in the first half and we should've been 2-0 up at half-time. Shea Gordon was really unlucky not to start and he certainly doesn't want the super-sub tag, but he's come on twice now and changed the game."
Morton manager David Hopkin: "I'm embarrassed. Two mistakes again against 10 men. We don't deal with balls into the box which is criminal. I can't defend the players today. It's schoolboy stuff and it's time some people at this club - some of the players - took responsibility."
