Morton 2-1 Ross County

By Sandra Brown
BBC Scotland at Cappielow

Scottish Football League

Morton came from a goal down, scoring twice after the break, to take all three points against Ross County in the First Division clash at Cappielow.

Steven Craig fired County in front during the first half with a powerful shot from 12 yards.

But Derek Lyle levelled for Morton just before the hour mark with an impressive strike from the edge of the box.

And Allan Jenkins completed the comeback with eight minutes remaining, driving low into the net.

Visiting keeper Michael McGovern pulled off a finger-tip save to deny Stewart Kean after seven minutes.

That was the best chance of the game until Craig smashed home Mark Corcoran's cross to give County a 1-0 lead at the interval.

But it was the home side who came out fighting after the break and, for the second week in a row, Lyle scored a wonderful goal with a strike into the top corner to pull the hosts level.

That was just before the hour mark and, as the game swung from end to end, Jenkins struck past McGovern from 18 yard for the winner.
