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. Inverness Caledonian Thistle visit for a match which was originally due to be played on 21st October, but was postponed due to travel difficulties for the Highlanders, in spite of Morton being forced to travel to Hampden i

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

Morton v Airdrieonians – Match Preview   by Russell Gordon.  With the focus across Europe moving from the club game to internationals whilst the lesser nations who are yet to confirm their places in Germany next summer strive to do so, or at least scrape their way into a play-off spot with the other also rans, here in Scotland we can sit back, relax and focus on the real business- the SPFL Trust Trophy Quarter Finals.  The only all-Championship tie of the round take

Match Preview - Partick vs Morton (11th September)

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

Morton v Dunfermline Athletic – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon The second leg of Morton’s Fife double header at Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology sees Dunfermline Athletic and the BBC Scotland cameras visit for the first time this season.  After Tuesday’s disappointing result against big-spending Raith Rovers, the need for a positive result against their cousins from across the Kingdom cannot be emphasised enough.  Ticket

Morton v Raith Rovers – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon  Championship action returns to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology after a month with the visit of big-spending Raith Rovers to Inverclyde.

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. The Ton besting their Ayrshire counterparts in the Championship curtain raiser is their only win to date this term, sitting at the foot of the table with only five points to their name.   Photo - GBR Photographs.

Match Preview - Morton vs Inverness (21st October)

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

Morton v Airdrieonians – Match Preview by Russell Gordon  After a weekend in which everything could go wrong did at Dunfermline, Morton welcome the other promoted side, Airdrie, to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology.  Whilst the Diamonds’ start to the season has been inconsistent, Dougie Imrie’s side will be looking to register their first league victory since the season’s opening day defeat of Ayr, as they hope to keep those in the pack above them within striking dist

Match Preview - Dunfermline vs Morton (23rd September)

Dunfermline vs Morton – Match Preview  by Dean McKinnon  Morton are in Fife on Saturday to face newly promoted Dunfermline at East End Park. Both sides will come into this clash in buoyant spirits, with The Ton claiming a hard-earned point at Tannadice last week, and Dunfermline toppling Queens Park at the national stadium. James McPake’s men have adjusted well to life back in the second tier and will provide another stern test for The Ton, who will seek their first win on th

Dundee United vs Morton – Match Preview   by Dean McKinnon  Morton travel north tomorrow seeking their first away points of the season as they take on league leaders Dundee United. Dougie Imrie will hope that last week’s 2-1 win over a dogged Elgin City side can lift his side ahead of their sternest test of the season so far. With reinforcements being added in defence for the visitors, the Cowshed faithful will hope this can spur The Ton onto improve their defensive record th

Morton vs Elgin City – Match Preview  by Dean McKinnon  Morton take a break from Championship duty this weekend, welcoming Elgin City to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology in the Third Round of the SPFL Trust Trophy.

Morton v Partick Thistle – Match Preview by Russell Gordon Morton will look to bounce back quickly from a chastening afternoon against their least favourite foes, Arbroath last Saturday as Partick Thistle visit Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology fresh off the back of their first league win of the season. Dougie Imrie will hope that he can get a similar reaction from his charges as to what he got last season, following a similarly poor performance against this weekend’s

Morton v Arbroath – Match Preview by Russell Gordon Having come away from last weekend’s Viaplay Cup tie Ibrox with a credible performance under their belts and a healthy cheque for their troubles, Morton return to league duty with the visit of Championship bottom dogs Arbroath to Cappielow Park supported by Darlrada Technology, looking to get back to winning ways, with the frustrating defeat in Kirkcaldy fresh on their minds.   Dick Campbell’s side of course, have problems of their o

Match Preview - Rangers vs Morton (19th August)

Rangers v Morton – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon  This weekend sees undoubtedly Morton’s stiffest test of the season so far, as they make the short trip down the M8 to face Premiership giants, Rangers. Whilst the tie provides a welcome boost to Dougie Imrie’s budget as the closure of the transfer window fast approaches, he’ll be under no illusions as to the size of the task Morton are facing. It should also be noted that the SPFL has a similar policy to the SFA of applying

Raith Rovers vs Morton – Match Preview  by Dean McKinnon  The Ton are on the road for the first time this season, travelling to Fife to take on free spending Raith Rovers. Dougie Imrie’s men performed with aplomb in the season opening 3-1 win against Ayr United, and with two home games following on from Saturday’s trip to the east coast, a positive result could have a massive impact on Morton’s first quarter.   Photo - GBR Photographs.

Morton v Ayr United – Match Preview  by Russell Gordon   Exactly three months to the day since that heartbreaking night that we trudged through the Aberdeenshire sludge in despair having missed out on a play-off place by the narrowest of margins, Morton’s cinch Championship campaign for 2023-24 kicks off against the team whose late winner in the Highlands was to stick and twist the dagger into the hearts of the Morton support on that fateful evening.  With both side

Morton v Edinburgh City – Match Preview by Russell Gordon The Viaplay Scottish League Cup group stages come to a conclusion this weekend, with Morton looking towards the visit of League One Edinburgh City to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology, realistically requiring nothing less than three points in their quest to snatch one of the three best second placed finishes which would take them through to the competition’s last sixteen.  Tickets for the match can be purchased

Ross County vs Morton – Match Preview  by Dean McKinnon  Morton travel up the A9 tomorrow to face their sternest test of the season so far, a trip to Premiership side Ross County in the Viaplay Cup group stage.

Kelty Hearts vs Morton – Match Preview   by Dean McKinnon  Morton’s new season kicks off tomorrow with a new opponent and a new stadium for the Ton faithful to visit. Despite the last-gasp heartache of Dougie Imrie’s men missed out on the promotion playoffs - although I’m sure the Morton support managed to find some catharsis during said playoffs - last season was a clear success for the club. With the summer retention list being sizably longer than Morton fans have come to e
