Match Preview - Inverness vs Morton (3rd May)

Inverness Caledonian Thistle v Morton – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon  The curtain comes down on the cinch Championship for another season as Morton take the long road up the A9 to visit Inverness Caledonian Thistle for a game which could confirm a second successive fifth placed finish for Dougie Imrie’s side after an up-and-down season in which they fell short of the promotion play-offs with a bit more to spare this time around.  However, the host

Match Preview - Morton vs Raith Rovers (27th April)

Morton v Raith Rovers – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon  With Morton’s place in the Championship secured for another season, and their big-spending visitors Raith Rovers’ place in second all but confirmed at the time of writing, but most probably set in stone by the time the match kicks off, Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology hosts the deadest of dead-rubbers on the penultimate weekend of the season.  All that is at stake for Dougie Imrie’s side is the

Match Preview - Arbroath vs Morton (20th April)

Arbroath v Morton – Match Preview   by Russell Gordon  With only a small concern over the possibility of Morton ending up in the relegation play-offs, and the play-offs at the right end of the table now arithmetically out of reach after a dismal seven weeks or so since Morton’s sixteen match unbeaten run came to an end, the irresistible force meets the immoveable object as our favourites make what could be their last trip to Gayfield for a while to visit already relegated Arb

Match Preview - Morton vs Dundee United

Morton v Dundee United – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon Well, that’s it. Done and dusted. We can forget about promotion, and don’t have any realistic concerns of relegation either. And so, begins the first of four dead-rubbers from a Morton perspective.  Their visitors Dundee United however, have far more pressing issues after Airdrie’s victory over big-spending Raith Rovers left the Terrors in pole position in the race for the Championship title, with their trip

Match Preview - Ayr United vs Morton (9th April)

Ayr United v Morton - Match Preview by Russell Gordon There’s no hiding from it, after Saturday’s terribly disappointing result from a miserable afternoon in Airdrie, Morton are playing for snookers if they are to have any ambitions of claiming a play-off place, with the Diamonds now five points clear of them and looking like clear favourites to book a quarter final meeting with Partick in early May.  The visit to Ayr United- another side on the periphery of the play-

Match Preview - Airdrieonians vs Morton (6th April)

Airdrieonians v Morton – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon  Having gotten back on the saddle last weekend with a comfortable victory over their little pets Queen’s Park at Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology, Morton kick off a run of three games in six days with what to date is their biggest game of the league campaign, as they head to North Lanarkshire to face Airdrieonians, the club currently occupying the coveted fourth place in the table that Morton will aspire

Match Preview - Morton vs Queens Park (30th March)

Morton v Queen’s Park – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon  Morton draw the curtain on a month of misery by welcoming Queen’s Park to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology in the hope of finally ending a run of five defeats in a row against Callum Davidson’s resurgent Spiders.  With the Glasgow side only a point behind Morton, albeit having played a game more, Dougie Imrie will see this as the perfect time to get back to winning ways against a team who have s

Match Preview - Morton vs Dunfermline (23rd March)

Morton v Dunfermline Athletic – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon  Morton welcome Dunfermline Athletic to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology hoping to arrest a run of form that has now stretched to four defeats on the bounce after last Saturday’s defeat to Partick at Firhill.  With the Pars’ form having improved since their East End Park mauling by Morton last month, Dougie Imrie’s side will be well aware of the threat James McPake’s side pose as the push

Match Preview - Partick vs Morton (16th March)

Partick Thistle v Morton – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon   With Morton’s adventures in the Scottish Cup over for another year after Monday night’s gallant performance against Premiership heavyweights Hearts proved to be in vain, it’s back to the league for Dougie Imrie’s men, and an important match against our good friends Partick at Firhill.  With our hosts on a poor run of form, having now gone eight matches without a victory after Tuesday night’s defeat to big

Match Preview - Morton vs Hearts (11th March)

Morton v Heart of Midlothian – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon  Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology hosts perhaps it’s highest profile match in a quarter of a century with the visit of one of Morton’s most unfamiliar foes in Premiership Heart of Midlothian, in the Scottish Gas Scottish Cup quarter-final in front of the BBC Scotland cameras.  Having already claimed one Premiership scalp in Motherwell, the competition’s only remaining non-Premiership club

Match Preview - Morton vs Dundee United (5th March)

Morton v Dundee United – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon  All good things must come to an end, and with Morton’s magnificent run of sixteen matches without defeat being halted by relegation-threatened Inverness on Saturday, league leaders Dundee United visit Cappielow Park Supported by Dalrada Technology hoping to keep their faltering chase to the finish line on track.  With injuries building up, Dougie Imrie will be looking for an improved performance as his side

Match Preview - Morton vs Inverness CT (2nd March)

Morton v Inverness Caledonian Thistle – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon  Off the back of Morton’s draw in Kirkcaldy against the league’s second top side, Dougie Imrie’s Morton welcome the league’s second bottom team to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology with the visit of an Inverness Caledonian Thistle side who have struggled to drag themselves from danger despite some encouraging signs when the ex-Scotland striker took the reins in September.  Having p

Match Preview - Raith Rovers vs Morton (27th February)

Raith Rovers v Morton – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon Following a hard-fought victory over Airdrie on Saturday, which took Morton to fifteen games without defeat, it’s straight back into action for Dougie Imrie’s men as they hit the winding little backroad to deepest, darkest Kirkcaldy to face a big-spending Raith Rovers side that have resurrected their title challenge after a couple of recent wins in the last fortnight.  With Imrie having to assess a number of war

Match Preview - Morton vs Airdrieonians (24th February)

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

Match Preview - Morton vs Motherwell (9th February)

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.

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

Match Preview - Morton vs Queens Park (16th December)

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
