Gary Oliver scores last minute winner as Mortin beat Ayr

Gary Oliver struck a last-minute winner as Morton made it three Ladbrokes Championship wins in a row with a 2-1 win over Ayr United at Cappielow Park.

Morton started brightly and Ross Forbes shot narrowly wide before Gary Oliver saw another shot blocked and Jamie Lindsay dragged the follow-up wide.

But it was the visitors who went ahead in the 37th minute when Kevin Nisbet broke in down the left and drilled a shot across Andy McNeil and in off the right-hand post.

Jai Quitongo went close to levelling five minutes after the restart when his deflected shot went into the sidenetting.

Morton thought they were level in the 67th minute when Nesbitt volleyed home from 25 yards after Forbes' free-kick had been headed clear but the goal was ruled out by the linesman after initially being given.

However, they only had to wait six minutes to get their equaliser when O'Ware headed home Forbes' outswinging corner.

And Morton then won it at the death when Jon Scullion flicked on Lindsay's pass for Oliver to race clear and roll the ball home.
