Dunfermline Athletic 3 - 0 St Mirren: Pars surge to the top

Morton 3 - 2 Dunfermline Athletic: Jai Quitongo completes comeback

Talk about winning games the hard way. Two nil down at half-time having squandered a number of early chances, Morton somehow lifted themselves off the floor to snatch victory with Jai Quitongo’s winner in time added on. It was enough to topple Dunfermline from the summit of the Championship and underlined that Jim Duffy’s side may once again be a decent bet for a top-four finish themselves.

Both sides pay a penalty for missing chances

We’ve grown used to penalty shoot-outs in the opening weeks of the season in the Betfred Cup and this game continued with a variant of the theme, featuring a stick- on penalty claim turned down, a questionable one given and third that was clear-cut but ultimately squandered. It may have somehow ended all-square but Dunfermline were probably the happier in the light of Sean Murdoch denying the hosts’ Danny Mullen spot kick with a diving save with just four minutes remaining.
