Red mist descends on Leith as title contenders split the points
Morton were always a threat and on the half hour a Thomas O’Ware header at a corner was only an inch or so high.
Lennon grew more frustrated on the sidelines when too many crosses from his team failed to beat or find a man.
The game had died down after an excellent opening 20 minutes, and it was more of the same in the second half.
Hibs showed more intent in the way of attacking, as you would expect, but there was only a coat of paint between the two sides in terms of ability.
The men in green and white were not making enough of their chances. Martin Boyle enjoyed some good space on the right but never could pick out a team-mate with a cross. On 56 minutes, Ricki Lamie fouled McGinn on the edge of the box. The free-kick was in a good position only for Cummings to send his shot a mile over.
Morton keeper Gaston was a lucky man on the hour when he came out to collect a ball and seemed to be just outside his box when he caught it, at least to the naked eye. The natives were far from happy referee Nick Walsh didn’t see anything untoward.
Hibs substitute Brian Graham put a header past with 15 minutes to go; the look on his face said that he should have done better.
The game was petering out and then then Morton substitute Kudus Oyenuga went in hard on Jordan Forster with a minute to go and it all kicked off.
McGregor was quick to let Oyenuga know what he thought of the challenge.
A melee ensued with both managers involved and, after consulting with his assistant, referee Nick Walsh quickly showed red to Oyenuga and McGregor and then dismissed Lennon and Duffy.
