Ray: Improve or we'll take the Fal.

Byline: David Wren

Falkirk .....................0 Morton....................2

Ray MacKinnon slammed his Falkirk flops after they plunged to the foot of the table and warned them they will need to improve if they are to avoid the drop.

Second-half goals from Greg Kiltie and Charlie Telfer condemned Falkirk to defeat and boss MacKinnon admitted they got what they deserved.

He said: "It was extremely disappointing. There's no sugar-coating it, we deserved nothing out of the game. We were outplayed. To a man we were off it, we needed 11 players bang at it and we got the complete opposite.

"We've got two games to go and we will have to play a lot better to salvage something."

Falkirk were lucky to still be on level terms at the break after Reece Lyon, three times, Kiltie, twice, and Telfer blew good chances for Ton.

But the visitors took just a minute of the second half to make their dominance count.

Telfer did brilliantly to get to the byeline and when the Bairns defence failed to clear his cutback, in-form Kiltie blasted home.

Lyon again fired wide before Kiltie cashed in on a defensive blunder to set up Telfer to double their lead.

Falkirk threw everything at Morton in a bid to get back into the game but keeper Robby McCrorie denied them time and again.

Morton boss Jonatan Johansson said: "It was an excellent performance. From the word go we were the better team and it was a comprehensive victory."
