Four in a row for Morton as they breeze past St Mirren

Morton climbed into the Ladbrokes Championship play-off places as they secured a fourth straight victory with a 3-1 win over St Mirren.

The hosts opened the scoring in the 15th minute when Ross Forbes' free-kick from the right was headed past Jamie Langfield by Thomas O'Ware.

And Forbes doubled the advantage after 27 minutes when Jai Quitongo flicked the ball on to Gary Oliver and his reverse pass found the midfielder bursting into the box and he drilled past Langfield.

Morton put the game to bed after 69 minutes with Forbes again involved as he laid a long ball into the box into the bath of Olver and he fired a sublime effort into the top corner.

Ben Gordon hit a late consolation for St Mirren when he nodded home Stephen Mallan's corner.
