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 - 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 - 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 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 - Inverness vs Morton (27th November)

Inverness vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Morton’s Scottish Cup journey, on the centennial anniversary of Jimmy Gourlay’s goal bringing the cup to Greenock, begins tomorrow with a trip north. Gus MacPherson’s side will travel up the A9 to the Caledonian Stadium for the second time this season, tasked with toppling a very impressive Inverness side. The Highland side, who lifted our showpiece trophy in 2014/15, have only squared off against their Inverclyde counterparts twice

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

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 - 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 Ayr United (4th December)

Morton vs Ayr United – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon Morton will be relieved to return to more familiar surroundings tomorrow, welcoming Ayr United to Sinclair Street in a crunch match for both sides. The Ton will look to put a disappointing result and performance at Palmerston midweek behind them, conceding a winner less than two minutes after scoring a late equaliser themselves. The Ayrshire side will also be seeking to arrest their disappointing run of form, with their only win in

Match Preview - Morton vs Inverness (7th December)

Inverness vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Managerless Morton will attempt to best Inverness for the first time this season, with a trip to Fir Park awaiting the victors of this evening’s Scottish Cup Third Round clash. As Billy Dodds’ side prepare for two trips to Greenock in five days, the Morton board will be focused on hiring Gus MacPherson’s successor, having been relieved of his duties following Saturday’s 2-2 draw against Ayr United.

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 Inverness (11th December)

Morton vs Inverness CT – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon Morton will once again square off against Inverness tomorrow, rounding off a trinity of contests in short succession. Morton triumphed midweek, with Gary Oliver’s penalty securing a Fourth Round Scottish Cup trip to Fir Park to face Motherwell. Interim manager Derek Anderson will look to secure a positive result for the Sinclair Street side, a week after Gus MacPherson was relieved of his duties following last week’s pulsating 2-2

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 - Arbroath vs Morton (18th December)

Arbroath vs Morton – Match Preview by Russell Gordon. With no sign of movement on the managerial front, it's expected that Derek Anderson will again lead Morton as they look to make amends for last Saturday's debacle against Inverness when they travel up the east coast to face an Arbroath team that are hoping to go ten games undefeated and with more than one eye on a place in the promised land of next season's Premiership. Squad News Brian McLean is still likely to miss out f

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 QOTS (26th December)

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

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

Kilmarnock vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Following the postponement of Saturday’s Boxing Day fixture against Queen of the South, Dougie Imrie’s managerial career will now commence at Rugby Park.

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 - Morton vs Dunfermline (8th January)

Morton vs Dunfermline – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Morton will get back into the swing of things tomorrow after a less-than-hectic festive period. Dougie Imrie’s side were scheduled to face both Queen of the South and Partick Thistle on Boxing Day and 2nd January respectively, with both sides requesting postponements due to COVID-related issues. New manager Imrie will be officially welcomed to Cappielow by a reduced crowd of 500 and will be looking to this fixture as the perfect o

Match Preview - Ayr United vs Morton (15th January)

Ayr United vs Morton – Match Preview by Russell Gordon. What a difference a new manager and a couple of decent results makes. Two teams that have stunk out the Championship for the last couple of seasons are suddenly both going into Saturday's match at an eerie Somerset Park with a degree of optimism as the bounce at both clubs starts to take effect- a welcome change in Morton's case, certainly. With Government restrictions still keeping the crowd at a maximum of 500, there are no

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

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

Match Preview - Inverness vs Morton (5th February)

Inverness CT vs Morton – Match Preview by Russell Gordon. For a third time already this season, Morton head up the A9 for a visit to Inverness hoping to complete the set after a defeat and a draw at the Caledonian Stadium already this season. After Friday night's TV thriller against Raith Rovers, the 'Ton can go into the fixture with a degree of confidence that we don't often have when visiting what hasn't been a particularly happy hunting ground down the years. For those unable t

Match Preview - Morton vs QOTS (12th February)

Morton vs Queen of the South – Match Preview by Russell Gordon. Queen of the South visit Cappielow on Saturday for a fixture rearranged from Boxing Day in the wake of both clubs' exits from the Scottish Cup, and which most observers would look upon as the proverbial six-pointer, with eighth placed Morton sitting 5 points ahead of the Doonhamers, who prop up the table. It's fair to say that such a cushion offers Morton much more room to manoeuvre than it does our visitors, but this has
