Dunfermline 1 Morton 1


The home side created loads of opportunities and dominated for most of the match but could only score the one goal. After allowing Morton to take a first half lead Dunfermline took until two minutes from full time to grab back an equaliser.

There had been a sustained period of Pars pressure deep into the Morton half but three minutes from the break WILSON chose to score his first Morton goal. The 23 year old was able to make ground all to easily through the middle and stick the past Jakub Stolarczyk from the edge of the box. 0-1

There were plenty of near things as Dunfermline piled on the pressure in the second half and with two minutes remaining they got their long awaited goal from a corner. Lewis McCANN met a Thomas corner in from the right with a glancing header and the Fifers had an equaliser. 1-1
