Campbell snatches point for Morton

Archie Campbell's fourth goal of the season earned rock-bottom Morton a point against a Queen of the South side that played most of the second half with nine men.


The home side almost went ahead in the 15th minute when Scott Taggart put Garry O'Connor through on goal but his 20-yard drive came back off the post.


Queen of the South lost goalkeeper Alex Clark to injury, with James Atkinson coming on, but they took the lead on the stroke of half-time when Iain Russell tapped in a low cross.


Their evening took a turn for the worse in first-half injury time when Chris Higgins was dismissed for deliberate handball when he was the last man.


And it got worse early in the second half when goalscorer Russell was sent off for a poor challenge on Jamie McCormack.


The visitors brought everybody back to defend, but after Marc Fitzpatrick had come close to an equaliser with a well-struck shot which hit the crossbar, Campbell rescued a point with a neat header.
