Morton 0-0 Stirling

Scottish Football League

Morton and Stirling shared a dour draw in their opening Division One clash.

Tempers became frayed as the match wore on and seven players entered the referee's notebook.

In the first half, both sides were largely restricted to efforts from distance, the best a 30-yard strike from Morton's Peter Weatherson.

Christie was alert five minutes after the interval when he tipped a volley from Michael Tidser round the post to maintain the deadlock.
