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.

Match Preview - Morton vs Partick (2nd September)

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.

Match Preview - Kelty Hearts vs Morton (15th July)

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

Match Preview - Cove Rangers vs Morton (5th May)

Cove Rangers vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon As the curtain falls on a terrific Championship season on the Tail o’ the Bank, Dougie Imrie’s men head north hoping to secure a playoff place. Imrie’s first order of business will be to beat a Cove side who are as desperate to avoid play-offs as their visitors are to be included in them. In a situation much akin to Morton, Cove will be hoping that a win combined with a favourable result from elsewhere will guarantee survival in t

Morton v Queen’s Park – Match Preview by Russell Gordon Whilst it feels like we’ve been saying for weeks now that Morton were using their last chance to remain in the race for the play-offs, remarkably, as we head into the penultimate weekend of the season, we’ve still got a fighting chance.   Last Saturday’s narrow win over Raith Rovers coincided with fellow contenders Inverness, Partick and Ayr United all dropping points in a weekend in which only Morton and bottom feeders Cove Rang

Morton v Hamilton Academical – Match Preview by Russell Gordon It feels like we’ve been saying it for weeks now, but the visit of relegation threatened Hamilton Accies to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology really does have the feel of an evening in which Morton will be drinking in the last chance saloon if they wish to keep their hopes of sneaking into the play-offs alive.

Match Preview – Arbroath vs Morton (17th March) by Dean McKinnon The Ton will eye a return to the Championship’s top quartet tomorrow evening as they face off against an Arbroath side desperate to avoid the drop into League One. Last week’s ill-tempered stalemate with Partick saw Dougie Imrie’s men tumble into fifth place, however The Ton’s record against the Championship’s basement boys suggests that any victory at Gayfield will be hard fought to say the least.

Morton v Partick Thistle – Match Preview by Russell Gordon As we enter the final quarter of the season, Morton head into what looks like a daunting encounter against an in-form Partick Thistle at Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology, bruised after a chastening defeat at the hands of fellow promotion hopefuls Ayr United in midweek.  With Tuesday’s match certainly going down as a missed opportunity, the weekend’s decimated card will see Morton’s advantage of having a game
