MORTON battled to a hard-fought point against 10-man Ayr United at Somerset Park on Saturday.

The visitors went close to scoring in the first half, with Gary Oliver and Bob McHugh both seeing chances go just wide.

But the game’s key moment happened on the hour mark, after United’s Craig Moore was sent off for kicking Gregor Buchanan in the groin.

But this result kept the Cappielow outfit in fifth place in the Championship, with the Honest Men staying top of the table.
