MORTON took a massive step towards the Championship play-offs on Saturday with a gritty 1-0 victory over Queen of the South at Cappielow.

A Ross Forbes strike inside 10 minutes of the second half was the difference, during what was an extremely tight affair.

It was an afternoon of misplaced passes, 50/50 tackles and tame efforts that was eventually ground out best by Ton – who opened up a 10-point gap over the Doonhamers in the race for a play-off spot.
