Morton vs Hearts Match Preview (Championship 20th April)

Hearts vs Morton – Match Preview by Russell Gordon/Dean McKinnon. Morton run out in front of the TV cameras tomorrow to host newly crowned Champions Hearts with far more on their minds than applauding the achievement of their visitors. With the business end of the season well and truly here, and realistically a three-way race to avoid ninth place and a play-off berth to avoid the drop between ourselves, Arbroath and David Hopkin's Ayr United, a point, or even a win would provide a mass

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

Match Preview - Raith Rovers vs Morton (Championship 27th March)

Raith Rovers vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Morton travel to Kirkaldy on Saturday hoping that the euphoria of Lewis Strapp’s winning penalty overpowers the physical strain caused by Tuesday night’s 120 minute stalemate. Gus MacPherson’s new look Morton side, who have changed their set up to a 3-4-2-1, have a new found defensive solidity and have attacked well in spells of matches against Queen of the South and Dunfermline. The new Morton gaffer will be hoping to avoid a re

Match Preview - Raith Rovers vs Morton (9th April)

Raith Rovers v Morton - Match Preview by Russell Gordon. It’s football for a fiver in Fife again as Morton visit the Kingdom for their penultimate away trip of the campaign to face newly crowned SPFL Trust Challenge Cup winners, Raith Rovers. With a place in the promotion play-offs probably out of reach by this stage for Morton, the focus will be on collecting three points to rid us of any lingering relegation fears, which weren’t helped by the Rovers’ capitulation to Dunfermline in th

Match Preview - Raith Rovers vs Morton (20th November)

Raith Rovers vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Morton return to Fife for the second away trip in succession, this time facing a tougher task in the form of Raith Rovers. John McGlynn’s side sit second in the Championship, three points behind league leaders Kilmarnock. The Kirkcaldy side are undefeated in six league outings and will look to compound the misery inflicted upon Morton by the aforementioned Kilmarnock last week. Squad Update Question marks remain over th

Match Preview - Queen of the South vs Morton (5th March)

Queen of the South vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. At a time where the Cowshed faithful would be forgiven for looking up the table rather than down, Morton will look to leave Dumfries with a victory for the first time this season. Dougie Imrie’s side will take confidence from their last victory over the Championship basement side, coming less than a month ago at Cappielow, as The Ton scored two goals in two minutes to overturn a one goal deficit and claim all three points.

Match Preview - Queen of the South vs Morton (23rd October)

Queen of the South vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Morton continue to rack up the miles this month, with Saturday’s outing to Palmerston to face Queen of the South the most crucial to date. The Sinclair Street side are now without a win in seven Championship outings, stretching all the way back to 7th August. With The Ton sitting second bottom of the Championship amidst their winless run, the pressure is growing on manager Gus MacPherson. To compound the on-field issues at

Queen of the South vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Familiar foes Morton and Queen of the South will battle it out for a place in the final four of this season’s SPFL Trust Trophy tonight at Palmerston, with an away tie against League One Cove Rangers awaiting the victors. Gus MacPherson’s side performed well at the Caledonian Stadium on Saturday, with a Gavin Reilly goal securing a Scottish Cup replay at Cappielow next midweek. The Cappielow gaffer will hope his tweaked sys

Match Preview - Partick Thistle vs Morton (Championship 28th August)

Partick Thistle vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Morton take a short trip along the M8 on Saturday to Maryhill to face Championship new boys Partick Thistle. The Glasgow side, who pipped eventual playoff finalists Airdrieonians to the Leaugue One title by two points last season, will look to continue their impressive goalscoring form and remain as top goalscorers in the second tier so far this season. With Morton sitting closely behind Partick as joint second top goalscorers

Match Preview - Partick Thistle vs Morton (2nd January)

Partick Thistle vs Morton – Match Preview by Russell Gordon. As we leave 2021 and enter 2022, Dougie Imrie will look to build upon his solid start as Morton boss as they first foot Partick Thistle at Firhill. Imrie may well find that any hopes of that are scuppered by the weather however, with the Maryhill club already having announced a 10am pitch inspection ahead of Sunday's clash. With the weather forecast not looking terribly promising, and the Jags' previous home fixture aga

Match Preview - Partick Thistle vs Morton (22nd February)

Partick Thistle vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon Morton will travel to Firhill this evening in a rearranged fixture following a festive call-off by the home side for an apparent waterlogged pitch. Dougie Imrie, who will serve the second match of a six-game touchline ban issued last week, will look to bounce back from his first league defeat in his new role. The Ton fell 1-0 to Imrie’s former side Hamilton on Saturday in a largely forgettable affair and will be looking to boun

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 - Motherwell vs Morton (Scottish Cup 16th April)

Motherwell vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon Morton are tasked with overcoming Premiership opposition this evening in the Scottish Cup as The Ton aim to reach the Quarter Finals of our nation’s showpiece trophy for the first time since 2017/18. With the winner of the Stranraer vs Hibs clash awaiting the winner of this evening’s clash, and a crunch match against Hearts midweek, Gus MacPherson’s squad management will be key to Morton’s chances in the next two fixtures.

Match Preview - Motherwell vs Morton

Motherwell vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Dougie Imrie will take his new-look Morton side to lock horns with his old foes Motherwell. Imrie, who spent a total of seven seasons at The Steelmen’s rivals Hamilton, has taken seven points from his first three matches in the Sinclair Street dugout. Having taken a point away from promotion candidates Kilmarnock, followed by dismantling Dunfermline 5-0 at Cappielow, Imrie’s side showed their clinical side on Saturday, besting fell

Match Preview - Morton vs Raith Rovers (Championship 6th Feb)

Morton vs Raith - Match Preview by Dean McKinnon With the reduced Championship season reaching the half way point, Morton sit mid-table in sixth place. The Greenock side find themselves six points ahead of the relegation play-off spot and three points adrift of the final promotion play-off place. While this may sound like the comfortable, mid-table position that Morton fans called for heading into this season, The Ton have not won in six matches and find themselves focusing more on the

Match Preview - Morton vs Raith Rovers (18th September)

Morton vs Raith Rovers - Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Morton welcome Raith Rovers to Cappielow tomorrow, attempting to claim their first point in four Championship matches. Gus MacPherson’s side will look to bounce back from successive defeats in the hands of Queen of the South, Partick Thistle and Kilmarnock against a Raith Rovers side that have stuttered so far this season. John McGlynn’s side were standouts last season, finishing 3rd behind promoted sides Hearts and Dundee, and w

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 - 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.

Morton vs Raith Rovers – Match Preview by Russell Gordon. Morton and Raith Rovers return to league duty at Cappielow in front of the BBC Scotland cameras tomorrow night after very different Scottish Cup experiences last weekend. Whilst Morton were heartbreakingly close to causing an upset against high flying Motherwell at Fir Park, the Fifers were easing through with the minimum of fuss against North Region Juniors, Banks O' Dee. With restrictions lifted, there are no limits on th

Queen of the South vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon.   Morton travel down the M74 to face Queen of the South on Saturday, looking to continue their positive run of form and momentum generated in the wake of David Hopkin’s shock resignation. In the minutes preceding our last meeting with the Dumfries side, current Morton chairman Crawford Rae announced that interim manager Anton McElhone, with the assistance of senior players Chris Millar, Jim McAlister and Brian McLean,

Morton vs Queen of the South – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon Morton square off against familiar foes Queen of the South on Saturday, looking to build on their two impressive Championship results thus far. An opening day draw against Dunfermline followed by a remarkable away win to Hamilton leaves The Ton sitting four points ahead of the visitors, who have yet to claim their first league points of the season.

Morton vs Queen of the South – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Gus MacPherson’s Morton side will endeavour to take a massive step towards Championship survival on Saturday as they square off against Queen of the South. As the Championship moves towards its climax, and with every side outside the promotion play-off places having played twenty matches, The Ton find themselves in an incredibly perilous eighth place. Sitting only one point ahead of ninth place Arbroath, and as the league’s

Morton vs Queen of the South – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. The excitement and galvanisation of the Morton support after news broke of Dougie Imrie’s return to Cappielow lasted less than 24 hours, as further COVID restrictions were announced. The ramifications of these measures mean that only five hundred of the Cowshed faithful will be present to welcome the new gaffer into his post. While tuning in to listen to the timeless patter of Andy
