Dunfermline 3 Morton 1

Michael O’Halloran was looking particularly lively and it was his soaring run that earned the eighth minute corner that would produce the opener. A simple delivery from the right by Chalmers was met by Craig WIGHTON who got in front of Alan Power to turn the ball neatly past keeper Jamie McDonald. 1-0

In 27 minutes a defence splitting move created by Ewan Otoo’s pass between Lewis McGrattan and Tyler French played in Josh Edwards on the left to set up McCANN for a finish from close in. 2-0

It looked like Dunfermline were seeing the game out when Morton got a goal back in 82nd minute. Calum Waters swung a diagonal pass into the Pars box where Muirhead shielded it down for Robbie CRAWFORD to drill into the net. 2-1. The two goal advantage was restored however just seven minutes later. Owen Moffat started the move in his own half, picking out Alex Jakubiak in front of the home dugout. He looped the ball into an empty central area for O’HALLORAN to run on to and then one on one with the keeper slipping the ball into the right side of the net. 3-1

Recent Form

Morton are undefeated in their last four away league games having secured wins at Dundee United and Arbroath and draws away to Airdrieonians and Inverness Caley Thistle. In addition Dougie Imrie’s side has not lost a match since their 2-1 reversal away to Partick the week after the Pars had defeated them by the same scoreline at Cappielow.

Dunfermline are in search of their first win in seven and hoping to improve their home statistics which currently reveal just one league win in their last six at KDM Group East End Park.
