Hibs frustrated by Morton

Scottish Cup finalists Hibernian were unable to build on their midweek win over Rangers as they were held to a goalless draw at Morton in the Scottish Championship.

Having overcome Dundee United on penalties at Hampden Park and then beaten their cup final opponents during the week, Hibs saw their miserable road form continue with a seventh match without a win.

Hibs keeper Mark Oxley kept out Mark Russell's powerful effort early on, with Liam Henderson lifting his shot just over the bar at the other end.

Anthony Stokes then saw his strike comfortably held by Morton keeper Derek Gaston.

Stokes' dipping half-volley was tipped over the bar by Gaston before Bobby Barr squandered a glorious chance to put Morton in front in the 65th minute.

A mistake from Niklas Gunnarsson sent Barr through on goal, but he saw his effort hit a post with neither side able to force a winner.
