WITH both teams safe from the drop and long since out of the promotion shake-up there was little at stake, but you would never have known, Dundee eventually taking the points from what was a great advert for First Division football.
MORTON'S push for fourth place in the First Division gathered momentum as they leapt above Queen's with a win at Palmerston Park. The Cappielow side bagged back-to-back league wins for the first time this season as they gave Kenny Brannigan's side a lesson in the art of finishing at Palmerston Park.
TWO first-half strikes were enough to earn Morton all three points and send Stirling to within touching distance of the relegation trap door.

Ross County 2
Gardyne 46; Milne 86
Falkirk kept their slim title hopes alive with a 1-0 win over Queen of the South at Palmerston.
Cowdenbeath's 1-0 win over Partick Thistle on Saturday moved them into eighth place and manager Jimmy Nicholl is looking for the same type of performance against Morton tonight to keep his side above Ross County and Stirling Albion.
SHOULD Raith seal promotion at the end of the season they might look back on this dire stalemate as a crucial point won on day when they were miles off the pace. John McGlynn's men were never truly at the races and were lucky to leave Cappielow with a point they did not merit.
