Morton v Airdrieonians – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon  With Morton now pushing for the promotion play-offs on the back of what is now a fourteen-match unbeaten run, they face what is arguably their most important match of the season to date, with the visit of one of their nearest challengers for the coveted final place in the top four of the table.  With Rhys McCabe’s Airdrie sitting five points behind Dougie Imrie’s men with a game in hand, three points for the

Match Preview - Queens Park vs Morton (17th February)

Queen’s Park v Morton – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon  Dougie Imrie’s Scottish Cup shock troops make what hopefully won’t be their last trip of the season to Scotland’s National Stadium as they look to extend their unbeaten run to an incredible fourteen games, after having disposed of Premiership Motherwell in last Friday’s televised Cappielow thriller.  With opponents Queen’s Park having recently seen a resurgence under the watchful eye of new manager Callum Dav

Morton v Motherwell – Match Preview   by Russell Gordon  Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology hosts the BBC Scotland cameras along with its biggest crowd in at least six years as Premiership strugglers Motherwell come to town to face a five-star Morton team who are on fire for a Fifth Round Scottish Gas Scottish Cup tie that is really whetting the appetite of the Greenock faithful.  Glen’s Vodka Scottish Championship Manager of the Month for January, Dougi

Match Preview - Dunfermline vs Morton (3rd February)

Dunfermline Athletic v Morton – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon  Morton hit the road this weekend, seeking to create a landmark twelfth game unbeaten for the first time since they embarked on a magnificent run of fifteen unbeaten in 1979. While such an achievement would be a tremendous one, and testament to the good work that Dougie Imrie and his squad have done in recent months, those looking for omens may not want to consider that in March 2017, as Morton approac

Match Preview - Morton vs Arbroath (25th January)

Morton v Arbroath – Match Preview   by Russell Gordon  Having recently disposed Montrose in the fourth round of the Scottish Gas Scottish Cup, Morton welcome the Gable Endies’ local rivals Arbroath to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology this weekend as they return to league business and look to push towards a place in the promotion play-offs.  Having frustratingly dropped points in their previous outing against Partick, Dougie Imrie’s side will be looking

Match Preview - Morton vs Montrose (20th January)

Morton v Montrose - Match Preview by Russell Gordon Cup fever comes to Greenock as League One promotion-chasers Montrose visit Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology for a tie that should prove far more of a test than the convincing victory the ‘Ton recorded over Lowland League Bo’ness United in the last round of the competition.  With Montrose sitting in fourth place in their division, and eying a stab at the play-offs in May, the trip to Greenock could prove a fine barom

Match Preview - Morton vs Partick (13th January)

Morton v Partick – Match Preview   by Russell Gordon   Dougie Imrie’s task going into this weekend is to pull his players down from Cloud Nine after last Saturday’s enthralling win at Tannadice in time for the visit of their fellow promotion hopefuls, Partick Thistle to Cappielow Park Supported by Dalrada Technology.   While last weekend’s task looked the most daunting test of Morton’s ever increasing unbeaten run, the visit of a side that have had their number thus

Match Preview - Dundee United vs Morton (6th January)

Dundee United v Morton - Match Preview  by Russell Gordon Morton’s six-match unbeaten league run faces it’s sternest test to date this weekend as the ‘Ton make the journey east to face title favourites, and another of the division’s form sides, Dundee United at Tannadice.  With both teams notching up impressive 3-0 victories in midweek, our hosts will also be aware that Morton pose a far greater threat than they may have expected earlier in the season, as the Greenock side start t

Match Preview - Morton vs Ayr (2nd January)

Morton v Ayr United - Match Preview  by Russell Gordon With a new year upon us, Morton welcome Ayr United to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology as their first footers of 2024 for a match between two sides that are only separated by a goal in the Championship table, with Morton occupying sixth place in the table and our guests hot on our heels in seventh.  After a productive month of December, Dougie Imrie’s side will be hoping to continue their good form into January a

Match Preview - Inverness vs Morton (30th December)

Inverness Caledonian Thistle v Morton - Match Preview  by Russell Gordon Having enjoyed a productive month of December, which has seen Morton accumulate more points than in the entirety of the season before the month began, Dougie Imrie’s side make the arduous journey to the Highlands to visit Inverness Caledonian Thistle. With the ‘Ton currently sitting in fifth place, ahead of their hosts by a point, a victory over the Highlanders would be a fantastic way to wrap up 2023.

Match Preview -Airdrieonians vs Morton (23rd September)

Airdrieonians v Morton – Match Preview   by Russell Gordon  Morton look to continue their charge up the table as they head to Monklands for their first visit to New Broomfield in almost nine years, to face an Airdrie side who, whilst they have had the ‘Ton’s number so far this term, seem to have hit a sticky patch just as our own favourites are enjoying their most productive period of the season.   With the clubs now level on seventeen points, and Morton occupying f

Morton v Queen’s Park – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon    Photo - GBR Photographs. After collecting only eight points all season before last weekend, Morton can remarkably more than double that total in the space of a week if they manage to garner a further three points from the visit of Queen’s Park to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology.   Having looked under threat of being detached at the bottom of the table not so long ago, wins o

Match Preview - Morton vs Inverness (12th December)

Morton v Inverness Caledonian Thistle – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon    After the weekend’s fantastic and much needed win in Arbroath, Morton immediately return to action in hosting the only club in the division they are yet to meet this term.

Match Preview - Arbroath vs Morton (9th December)

Arbroath vs Morton – Match Preview   by Dean McKinnon  Our heroes head north tomorrow as The Ton look to drag themselves out of the dropzone. Dougie Imrie’s men have had plenty of time to prepare for this encounter, with last week’s clash with table topping Dundee United falling foul of sub-zero temperatures. With several crucial fixtures being played in December, breaking the thirteen-match winless run against Arbroath would be the best possible start.  Phot

Match Preview - Morton vs Dundee United (2nd December)

Morton v Dundee United – Match Preview   by Russell Gordon   The league leaders visit Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology as Morton kick off a month which could be crucial in determining what division they could be playing their football in next season. After a resounding Scottish Cup victory over Lowland League Bo’ness United, Dougie Imrie’s men will be looking to turn their league fortunes around against a Dundee United side who will still be reeling from their s

Match Preview - Morton vs Bo'ness United (25th November)

Morton v Bo’ness United – Match Preview   by Russell Gordon. Having ended their interest in the SPFL Trust Trophy in unfortunate circumstances against Airdrieonians last weekend, Morton’s focus now moves onto preventing 101 years of hurt becoming 102 years as our Scottish Gas Scottish Cup campaign begins with the visit of Lowland League Bo’ness United to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology for the first ever meeting of the two sides.  With season tickets

Partick vs Morton – Match Preview   by Dean McKinnon  The Ton head up the M8 on Saturday afternoon hoping a second away win of the campaign can lift Dougie Imrie’s men out of the relegation zone for the first time since Matchday 5. Back-to-back home defeats to Raith and Dunfermline have lowered the mood around Cappielow, with the Sinclair Street faithful looking for Dougie Imrie and his players to gain a positive result before the two-week Championship hiatus, as attentions t

Match Preview - Ayr United vs Morton (28th October)

Ayr United vs Morton – Match Preview  by Dean McKinnon  Morton head down the coast tomorrow to face a rejuvenated Ayr United side, hoping for an away win that could spark Dougie Imrie’s men into a turnaround of their own.

Morton v Inverness Caledonian Thistle – Match Preview by Russell Gordon Morton have the opportunity to improve upon what has been a horrendous home league record thus far with the visit of fellow strugglers Inverness Caledonian Thistle to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology this weekend.   With only goal difference separating the two sides at the foot of the table, this is the perfect opportunity for Dougie Imrie’s charges to show that they have no intention of being involv

Morton vs Kelty Hearts – Match Preview  by Dean McKinnon  Morton welcome League One Kelty Hearts to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology tomorrow, looking to progress to the latter stages of the SPFL Trust Trophy. One thing that has been more constant than the name or format of Scotland's fourth cup competition has been Morton's failure to make any meaningful attempts to bring this trophy to the Tail o' the Bank. Dougie Imrie will hope that another win against Kelty

Match Preview- Queen's Parks vs Morton (7th October)

Queen’s Park v Morton - Match Preview by Russell Gordon You know things are looking grim when we’re discussing relegation six-pointers before the clocks have gone back, but such is Morton’s alarming run of form in the opening weeks of the season, we head to Scotland’s National Stadium fearing that the hoodoo of a season ending in a four isn’t going to rear its ugly head yet again.  Hosts Queen’s Park’s season has stalled somewhat after an excellent start, which was aided by a doub
