Ton see off City



Posted Sunday, December 03, 2017 by PA

Morton recorded a comfortable 4-1 Ladbrokes Championship victory over bottom side Brechin, who remain without a league win this season.

The home side got off to a strong start with Gary Oliver firing Ross Forbes' assist into the bottom corner from close range to establish a fourth-minute lead at Cappielow Park.

Brechin, with just one goal from their last three league games, hit back after 41 minutes as Isaac Layne broke into the box and finished well past Morton goalkeeper Derek Gaston.

But, on the brink of half-time, Scott Tiffoney put the hosts ahead of the second time with his effort on the edge of the 18-yard box after Gary Harkins' corner was held out by visiting stopper Graeme Smith.

The Ton extended their lead through a Harkins penalty after 72 minutes and Forbes set up Jai Quitongo for a close-range fourth on his return from injury seven minutes from time.
