Morton 0-1 Dunfermline- Match Report

Thomson gets Pars back on course

Ryan Thomson scored the only goal as Dunfermline ended their dismal run of form with a 1-0 win at Morton.

The Pars were playing in their first game since a 15-point deduction for entering administration and took a surprise lead 10 minutes in when Allan Smith found Thomson, who fired a low shot into the bottom corner for his second goal in as many games.

Morton pressed for an equaliser in the second half as substitute Aidan Fulton volleyed Kyle Wilkie's corner over from 18 yards before Wilkie saw his effort saved by Michal Hrivnak.

Richie Burke's side came agonisingly close to snatching a late point when substitute Archibald Campbell hit the post from the edge of the box, but Dunfermline held on to end a run of nine league games without a win.
