Saturday 9th November 2013
SONS normally excellent away form deserted them today with a 2-0 defeat against Morton at Cappielow.
Two second half goals, conceded from set plays, gave the home team a victory.
The first half was an even affair with Morton having the better chances. Nacho Novo should have given his team the lead on the half hour mark but his toe poke struck Ewings right-hand post.
For Sons, the closest attempt came from Jordan Kirkpatrick but his shot from the edge if the penalty box was gathered comfortably by Gaston in the Greenock goal.
Mark McLaughlin lost his marker on the hour to head Morton into the lead from an Imrie free-kick.
Sons made some immediate formation changes, but it was the home team who scored again, this time from a corner which Jamie Ewings will want to forget.
Peciar capitalised on the goalie’s mistake to seal the points for Morton with Imrie again providing the assist.
Colin Nish came close to pulling a goal back on the stroke of full-time but his glancing header was saved by Gaston who was rarely troubled in the second forty-five.
Despite the defeat, Sons remain seventh in the division and now face a second consecutive away day next Saturday at Livingston.
