Match Preview - Cove Rangers vs Morton (5th May)

Cove Rangers vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon As the curtain falls on a terrific Championship season on the Tail o’ the Bank, Dougie Imrie’s men head north hoping to secure a playoff place. Imrie’s first order of business will be to beat a Cove side who are as desperate to avoid play-offs as their visitors are to be included in them. In a situation much akin to Morton, Cove will be hoping that a win combined with a favourable result from elsewhere will guarantee survival in t

Match Preview - Morton vs Queens Park (29th April)

Morton v Queen’s Park – Match Preview by Russell Gordon Whilst it feels like we’ve been saying for weeks now that Morton were using their last chance to remain in the race for the play-offs, remarkably, as we head into the penultimate weekend of the season, we’ve still got a fighting chance.   Last Saturday’s narrow win over Raith Rovers coincided with fellow contenders Inverness, Partick and Ayr United all dropping points in a weekend in which only Morton and bottom feeders Cove Rang

Match Preview - Morton vs Raith Rovers (22nd April)

Morton v Raith Rovers – Match Preview by Russell Gordon With Inverness snatching a late win at Hamilton in midweek ahead of the visit of title favourites Dundee, and Ayr hosting Queen’s Park in the TV game on Friday night, the mathematicians will be needed to come to the fore as Raith Rovers visit Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology with Morton hanging onto their hopes of making the Premiership play-offs by a thread. With Dundee’s Kwame Thomas popping up right on cue to

Match Preview - Dundee vs Morton (15th April)

Dundee vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon Morton travel to Dundee tomorrow in another massive fixture in the hunt for a playoff slot. An impressive second-half performance against Hamilton in midweek saw Dougie Imrie’s men grab a much needed three points. As Partick and Ayr clash, and with Inverness travelling to relegation-battling Cove, a positive result for The Ton would be a vital step towards fourth place. Photo - GBR Photographs.

Match Preview - Morton vs Hamilton (11th April)

Morton v Hamilton Academical – Match Preview by Russell Gordon It feels like we’ve been saying it for weeks now, but the visit of relegation threatened Hamilton Accies to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology really does have the feel of an evening in which Morton will be drinking in the last chance saloon if they wish to keep their hopes of sneaking into the play-offs alive. After too many damaging results in the last six weeks or so, even a win is only likely to make a

Match Preview - Ayr United vs Morton (8th April)

Ayr United vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon Morton travel to Ayrshire tomorrow attempting to gain ground on Partick Thistle and Ayr United in the race for the Premiership playoffs. Dougie Imrie’s men currently trail the hosts by six points, with a game in hand due to be played against Hamilton in midweek. Following last week’s last gasp defeat to Inverness, The Ton will look to recapture the positive momentum of earlier in the campaign as the Championship enters the home stra

Match Preview - Morton vs Inverness (1st April)

Morton v Inverness Caledonian Thistle – Match Preview by Russell Gordon There’s no way of hiding from it now- we’re in the business end of the season, with only seven games left for Morton to force themselves into the play-offs and hopefully achieve the ultimate goal of a place in next season’s Premiership. Their visitors on Saturday however, are on a high- Inverness Caledonian Thistle will be coming to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology off the back of an impressive w

Match Preview - Arbroath vs Morton (17th March)

Match Preview – Arbroath vs Morton (17th March) by Dean McKinnon The Ton will eye a return to the Championship’s top quartet tomorrow evening as they face off against an Arbroath side desperate to avoid the drop into League One. Last week’s ill-tempered stalemate with Partick saw Dougie Imrie’s men tumble into fifth place, however The Ton’s record against the Championship’s basement boys suggests that any victory at Gayfield will be hard fought to say the least.

Match Preview - Morton vs Partick (11th March)

Morton v Partick Thistle – Match Preview by Russell Gordon As we enter the final quarter of the season, Morton head into what looks like a daunting encounter against an in-form Partick Thistle at Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology, bruised after a chastening defeat at the hands of fellow promotion hopefuls Ayr United in midweek.  With Tuesday’s match certainly going down as a missed opportunity, the weekend’s decimated card will see Morton’s advantage of having a game

Match Preview - Morton vs Ayr (7th March)

Morton v Ayr United – Match Preview by Russell Gordon. Morton wrap up the third quarter of the league campaign with the visit of Ayr United to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology for a re-arranged fixture from the 2nd of January, the result of which could go a long way to deciding where both sides’ seasons go from here. With the two teams enjoying contrasting fortunes in recent weeks, Glen’s Vodka SPFL Manager of the Month for February, Dougie Imrie will be hoping, and

Match Preview - Queens Park vs Morton (4th March)

Morton vs Queens Park - Match Preview by Dean McKinnon As the Championship title race hots up, Dougie Imrie will lead his side out tomorrow against Queens Park, aiming to reduce the gap between Morton and the league leaders. The Spiders, who sit atop of the Championship with just ten fixtures remaining, have had a hugely impressive debut in the second tier, and will be eying up a space at Scottish football’s top table next term. The Morton gaffer will be hoping that his team’s endeavou

Morton v Dundee – Match Preview by Russell Gordon. The BBC Scotland cameras return to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology for what looks to be a fascinating match up between a Morton side looking to follow up last weekend’s fantastic win against league leaders Queen’s Park by toppling title favourites Dundee.  With The Spiders also in action against Raith Rovers at Ochilview, there is plenty of room for twists and turns at the top end of the table ahead of the other mat

Morton v Queen’s Park – Match Preview by Russell Gordon The league leaders come to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology looking to extend their lead at the top of the table for at least 24 hours, with Morton looking to arrest a winless run which is now stretching across seven league games, all the way back to November 19th.

Match Preview - Inverness vs Morton (4th February)

Inverness vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon Morton will look to resurrect their fortunes in the Highlands on Saturday, travelling up the A9 to lock horns with Billy Dodds’ Inverness. Following defeat to Arbroath at Cappielow last week, Dougie Imrie’s side are now five league matches without a win and would love a repeat of the Grant Gillespie inspired victory from earlier in the campaign.

Match Preview - Morton vs Arbroath (28th January)

Morton v Arbroath - Match Preview by Russell Gordon After last weekend’s disappointment and controversy at Celtic Park, Morton’s involvement in Scotland’s domestic cup competitions has ended for another season, allowing Dougie Imrie and his charges to concentrate on getting a league campaign that has stuttered in the last month or so back on track as Morton look to regain their place in the top four and push themselves further up the table.  With postponements over the festive per

Match Preview - Celtic vs Morton (21st January)

Celtic v Morton – Match Preview by Russell Gordon With Morton’s impressive league campaign hitting a sticky patch in recent weeks, under normal circumstances, the resumption of our Scottish Cup campaign may well be seen as blessed relief from the trials and tribulations of a promotion race. Not so much this weekend though, as Morton jump from the frying pan right into the raging inferno of Celtic Park, and a trip to the champions, and by far the best team in the land. With over 20

Match Preview - Hamilton vs Morton (14th January)

Hamilton Academical vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon Dougie Imrie will lead his Morton side out into his old stomping ground on Saturday as The Ton look to close the gap at the top end of the Championship table. Imrie, who has scored for both Morton and Hamilton at New Douglas Park, will be forced to take in tomorrow’s match from the main stand, having been shown two bookings in quick succession in last week’s feisty battle against Partick. With The Ton now four matches witho

Match Preview - Partick Thistle vs Morton (7th December)

Partick Thistle vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. The Cowshed faithful were delighted with the news that Liam Grimshaw, Robbie Crawford and skipper Grant Gillespie had all extended their stay at the Tail o’ the Bank this week. Morton fans were however, left disappointed after news broke that the Cappielow pitch had fallen foul of the weather ahead of Monday’s highly anticipated showdown with Ayr United. Imrie’s men will now travel to F

Match Preview - Raith Rovers vs Morton (23rd December)

Raith Rovers vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon The Ton travel through to Kirkcaldy this evening for the final fixture of what has been an incredibly successful year for the Greenock side.

With a popular and successful team on the pitch, and Morton Club Together attracting external investment

Morton vs Queens Park – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Whilst the Cappielow pitch suffers amidst the sub-zero snap, Dougie Imrie’s side have been anything but frosty on Sinclair Street this season. The Ton have claimed maximum points in five of their eight outings in Inverclyde this season, as they prepare to welcome Championship newcomers Queens Park, the last side to visit the Tail o’ the Bank on league business this season.

Match Preview - Morton vs Raith Rovers (10th December)

Raith Rovers v Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. The race for promotion to the Premiership takes a back seat for the weekend as Morton travel to holders Raith Rovers in Kirkcaldy in the last sixteen of the SPFL Trust Trophy. Morton, and perhaps our victims in the last round Ayr United, are the biggest clubs who have been involved in every campaign without claiming the trophy, only ever reaching the final in 1992, where we fell 2-3 to Hamilton Accies at the old Love Street.
