This is just rubbish. If you’re not going to start Colville and Lyon, you can have no real complaints about not winning games.

Shame they can't bring cmdc on to tell everyone about how the money is definitely not resting in anyone's account and is fact going to Very Good Use Indeed. Presumably on the £1 million annual ma

A win here and we can focus on getting in shape to play in the championship next year.

Might continue with Oliver who while not on my favourites list showed I intelligence in holding up play and bringing midfield people into the game on Weds.

What's the update on Kyle Jacob's missed why he has not been around or playing.

I'd be lining up; 

McAdams

Ledger Fjortoft McGinty Strapp

McAlister Lyon 

McGuffie       Nesbitt        Colville 

Oliver

Just after the Inverness game I was advocating Salkeld to replace McGuffie, but I'm starting to favour McGuffie starting and getting his chance. The ball stuck a lot better in the forward areas on Wednesday, so Oliver should definitely be starting. It's just a case of altering the supply we're giving him and trying to get the ball into his feet more, so he can turn defenders and draw fouls. Blues might feel aggrieved to be dropped, but one (albeit excellent) lung bursting run and finish doesn't mitigate us being overrun in midfield for large spells of the game. It's too important a game to simply hope Blues can deliver. McGinty was absolutely stinking on Wednesday night, but I think given his performances this season he's earned the right to play his way back into form. 

I'd be looking to use Colville as something resembling an inside forward in this one and allow Strapp to provide the attacking width on the left. I'm looking for Nesbitt, after a very quiet and ineffective performance on Wednesday and a few sitters missed in recent weeks, to deliver a big performance. 

I'd like to think Morton could nick this by the odd goal, but a 0-0 slogfest wouldn't surprise me.

You address me by my proper title, you little bollocks!

According to the Inverness Courier he missed a couple of weeks with a hamstring injury but has returned to training.

Millar and Blues with McAlister and Lyon still out the team?!

Millar was fairly effective in calming things down in the midfield when he came on against Inverness and allowed us to retain possession for more than 10 seconds at a time. Lyon also made a difference when he came on, and generally offers more drive forward than Millar. I’d have thought he’d start alongside Blues.

There’s less incentive to give Jim a run out with no crowd there to applaud him on or off the park. Hopefully a testimonial can be arranged for him post lockdown.

You know your pitch is bad when it has actual crop circles on it.

I never want to see a game against Arbroath ever again. Every game between us over the last 2 seasons has been eye bleedingly bad.

Don’t think it’s Arbroath that are the problem here, unfortunately.

I don’t recall Linn having a “great career” down here.

McGhee needs some support, there's no-one backing him up.
Hayes playing it forward, Bell being forced to do it all alone, now forward from Marr, here's Ritchie, still Andy Ritchie, look at the control...

That is a marvellous goal from Andy Ritchie. Twenty minutes on the clock and Morton's supporters come alive. A goal which epitomises the control, the arrogance, the cheek of Andy Ritchie.

Yep I was thinking exactly the same thing lol.

Always did quite well against us, but was absolutely dire for us.

That's a tremendous clearance from McLean, but as good a cross as it was it was too easy. McGuffie needs to be putting pressure on the ball rather than standing off.
