Morton manager David Hopkin has lamented the goals his Morton side conceded as they lost 3-1 to Dunfermline.

It’s now eight away defeat out of eight for the Ton this season as their frustrations on the road continue. Defeat in Fife also leaves them in eighth.

Hopkin has bemoaned how easy his side made it for the home team at East End Park: “The team talk changed at half time as we knew that Dunfermline were going to come at us.

“We then gave away the softest goal you’ll ever see. Danny’s got the ball in his hands and Peter Grant decides to kick the ball out his hands.

“Fair play to the players, we changed the shape and scored a fantastic goal. I then thought we were going to get something out of the game, we were pushing and created some very good chances.

“We then take a short corner on the 86th minute. Why we do that I don’t know and we get hit on the counter and the game is dead. I thought the players played well but you can’t make those mistakes and expect to pick any points up.”
