Morton 2-0 Partick Thistle

Scottish Football League

A goal in each half from Stewart Kean and Michael Tidser secured a win for Morton over Partick Thistle.

Kean gave Morton the lead in the 18th minute with a close-range volley.

He sent in a 31st-minute shot before Partick came close to an equaliser 10 minutes after half-time when Liam Buchanan headed straight at the keeper.

However, Morton were rarely threatened after that and Tidser secured the win when he fired home from 20 yards after his initial free-kick hit the wall.
