Morton 0-2 Dunfermline Athletic

SFL

Substitute Joe Cardle's goal dashed Morton's comeback hopes as the Pars secured victory at Cappielow.

Dunfermline took the lead in 19 minutes when Callum Woods and Willie Gibson combined well on the right wing and Andy Kirk headed home.

Brian Graham spurned a great chance to equalise before Cardle's stunning 20-yard strike sealed the points.
