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.

Match Preview - Morton vs QOTS (26th November)

Morton v Queen of the South – Match Preview by Russell Gordon After Morton’s fantastic last-gasp victory at Cove Rangers last weekend, the football world’s attention turns to the latest episode in the story of the greatest sporting competition on the planet- yes, our interest in the Scottish Cup resumes for another year!  Whilst it’s far from the most attractive of fixtures, with many of us at least looking for someone we’ve never previously met at this early stage, or at best a t

Match Preview - Cove Rangers vs Morton (19th November)

Cove Rangers vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon Morton head north tomorrow aiming to extend their unbeaten run to eight matches. The Cappielow side showed guile, aggression and resolve last week to see off a Partick Thistle side who continue to slide down the Championship table. Cove, who appear to have turned a corner following a challenging induction to Scotland’s second-tier, will pose a different challenge to a Morton side that are brimming with confidence under Dougie Imri

Match Preview - Morton vs Partick Thistle (12th November)

Morton v Partick Thistle - Match Preview by Russell Gordon Partick Thistle call in at Cappielow Park Supported by Dalrada Technology UK this weekend looking to arrest a quite remarkable decline in their fortunes since what was, for Morton at least, quite a chastening afternoon at Firhill just six short weeks ago.  With the clubs effectively having swapped places in the table since then, with the hosts occupying second place in the table and Ian McCall’s side now in seventh place,

Match Preview - Ayr United vs Morton (5th November)

Ayr United vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Dougie Imrie’s Morton side travel to Somerset Park on Saturday looking to make club history, as The Ton aim to play five matches without conceding a goal. The history books show that in 2016, the team went four matches with consecutive clean sheets, although these were matches against lower-league opposition in the League Cup group stages. You have to go all the way back to 2006/07 for the last time Morton kept five consecutive cle

Match Preview - Morton vs Inverness (28th October)

Morton v Inverness Caledonian Thistle – Match Preview by Russell Gordon. After the worst possible start to October saw Morton drubbed 5-1 at Firhill, Morton bring what has turned into a very productive month to a close with the visit of Billy Dodds’ depleted Inverness Caledonian Thistle to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology UK in front of the BBC Scotland cameras. With Ayr United’s not-at-all funny defeat of Partick Thistle on Tuesday night propelling the Honest Men to

Match Preview - Morton vs Raith Rovers (15th October)

Morton v Raith Rovers Preview by Russell Gordon Having exorcised a few ghosts in ending Hamilton’s long unbeaten run in Greenock on Saturday past, Raith Rovers are the visitors to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology Ltd, as Morton look to build upon two fine victories over the last week or so. One would expect however that Ian Murray’s men, who also enjoyed a resounding victory last weekend, 3-0 at home to Cove Rangers, will provide a sterner test for Dougie Imrie’s men

Match Preview-Queen's Park vs Morton (4th October)

Morton vs Queen’s Park- Match Preview By Russell Gordon Morton face a midweek trip to Larbert this evening looking to right some wrongs after Saturday’s horrendous afternoon in Maryhill, but are running into a side that are hitting their best run of form so far this season and sitting neatly in second place in the table following last season’s promotion through the play-offs.   With trips to the Falkirk area a very rare thing in recent years, three points would be very welcom

Partick Thistle vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon As international football rides off into the sunset following an outstanding week’s work from Steve Clarke’s men, we turn out attention back to domestic matters with a trip up the road to face old foes Partick Thistle. In between impressive wins against Ukraine and Ireland, our favourites progressed in the SPFL Trust Trophy, thanks in no small part to Sean McGinty’s not-at-all-funny penalty miss.

Match Preview - Inverness vs Morton (27th August)

Inverness vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon Morton will travel north on Saturday feeling optimistic following Saturday’s encouraging performance against Dundee.

Match Preview - Hamilton vs Morton (30th July)

Hamilton vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon The Championship season kicks off tomorrow with Dougie Imrie’s Morton side travelling to Imrie’s old stomping ground. Imrie, who served tomorrow’s hosts with distinction as both a player and a coach, will lead the visitors out tomorrow in the realistic knowledge that both his current club and his former club face a season of attempting to avoid the Championship basement. With news that potential investment into Greenock Morton fell th

Match Preview - Morton vs Bonnyrigg Rose (23rd July)

Morton vs Bonnyrigg Rose – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Morton’s League Cup qualification hopes are looking far more positive than they were at tea time on Saturday.

Match Preview - Hibs vs Morton (20th July)

Match Preview - Clyde vs Morton (16th July)

Imrie will face Clyde, whom he represented for two years as a player, in the stadium in which he played more than any other.
