Match Preview - Morton vs Kelty Hearts (14th October)

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 - 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

Kilmarnock vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon Gus MacPherson’s side travel down the coast tomorrow for the first league meeting between Morton and Kilmarnock since the 1992/93 season – when Gus MacPherson was playing for the Ayrshire side.

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 Dunfermline (3rd November)

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

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

Match Preview - Morton vs Arbroath (2nd October)

Morton vs Arbroath - Match Preview by Russell Gordon. With Morton's four game losing streak in the league reaching an end last weekend with an insipid 0-0 draw at Ayr United, Gus MacPherson's attention now shifts towards the league's surprise package- the high-flying part-timers of Arbroath. With home form that has yielded a solitary point from nine, against bottom-dogs Dunfermline on the opening day, it's fair to say it's a game worthy of approaching with a bit of trepidation against

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 - Montrose vs Morton (9th October)

Montrose vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. There is an old football adage that prophesises cup competitions can be a welcome distraction from league duty. Gus MacPherson will hope that adage proves correct on Saturday, with Morton traveling north to take on Montrose in the SPFL Trust Trophy on Saturday. Despite a much-improved performance against Arbroath last Saturday, in which a dubious penalty award robbed The Ton of all three points, the Sinclair Street side are without a

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

Inverness CT vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Gus MacPherson will head up the A9 on Saturday attempting to win a league match for The Ton at the seventh time of asking. Despite a much-improved result and performance in their last league outing against Arbroath, Morton again struggled to breakdown Montrose in last weekend’s SPFL Trust Trophy tie, requiring spot kicks to set up their Quarter Final clash with Queen of the South at Palmerston. In the final game of the first quar

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 - 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

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 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.

Gus MacPherson rung the changes for Saturday’s stalemate at Palmerston on Saturday, shifting to a 4-1-4-1 from the 3-4-1-2 he utilised early in the season.

Match Preview - Morton vs Hamilton (30th October)

Morton vs Hamilton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Gus MacPherson heads into Saturday’s crunch match against Hamilton knowing that anything other than three points will see his side going ten league matches without a win. Morton’s midweek goalless draw against Partick Thistle, coupled with an 88th minute Raith equaliser in the Fife derby, spared the Sinclair Street side from becoming the Championship’s basement side after the midweek round of fixtures. With Morton’s defensive record

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 - Dunfermline vs Morton (6th November)

Dunfermline vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Morton and Dunfermline have chosen two different paths this week as they aim to climb out of the Championship relegation slots. Morton, now without a win in ten league outings following last weekend’s 1-1 draw against Hamilton, have chosen to allow Gus MacPherson to remain in the Cappielow dugout, a sentiment not matched by their Fife counterparts. The Pars board relieved manager Peter Grant of his duties this week, with former Sc

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.
