MORTON Under-20s drew 2-2 with East Kilbride at K-Park to complete a second game in as many days for Darren Barr’s outfit.

Nathan Durham — who netted against Turriff United in Sunday’s Scottish Youth Cup outing at Cappielow — opened the scoring before Gary Graham and Geoff Mitchell turned the game on its head with two goals either side of half-time for the hosts.

But Ton development squad skipper Ruaridh Langan popped up with five minutes to go to help secure his side a point on a freezing cold evening in Development League West.

Loan stars Jamie McGowan, Scott Miller and David Anderson were chosen from the start alongside first-team fringe players Darren Hynes and Ben Armour - the latter of whom would play in his third game since Saturday after coming off the bench for the first team against Queen of the South and starting Sunday’s 3-0 win over Turriff.

Durham’s opener came from an Anderson delivery, with the defender leaping to power home a header that was almost identical to his strike against the Highlanders on Sunday.

Gary Graham levelled with a decent hit from inside the area for East Kilbride before former Alloa man Geoff Mitchell gave the hosts the lead for the first time of the evening into the second half, meeting a deep cross at the back stick.

Armour hit the crossbar with a header before Langan equalised with an arrowed effort that found the bottom corner.

Ton thought they’d won it when Armour again had a chance at the death but East Kilbride held on for a point towards the end.

The result leaves the Greenock men fifth in the table, level on points with their opponents and a significant 10 points adrift of league leaders Airdrieonians — albeit with two games in hand over the table toppers.
