MORTON had to settle for a point after they were held to a goalless draw by Ayr United at Cappielow on Saturday.

The two sides could not be separated, but the Ton had to work hard for their point with home goalkeeper Robby McCrorie producing a fantastic double save in the first half to deny the visitors, while Lawrence Shankland hit the post late on for United.

The result leaves the Greenock outfit in sixth place, three points off the promotion play-offs, and six above the relegation play-off spot.
