  2. 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 will provide another stern test for the Sinclair Street side. Injury News Morton captain Kyle Jacobs looks certain to miss out again this week. Striker Gozie Ugwu is facing a race against time to be fit enough to play his part in Saturday’s match, despite having featured as a late substitute against Kilmarnock as Morton tried to force an equaliser. Photo - GBR Photographs. Current Connections Morton’s assistant manager Andy Millen spent a season in Kirkaldy as a player in 1997, making eighteen league appearances. David McGurn is the most obvious link between The Ton and our Fife counterparts. He joined Morton in 2002 as a youth from Hillwood Boys Club. After being promoted to the first team, he spent the entirety of 2003-04 deputising to Craig Coyle, who also played for Raith Rovers. After one hundred appearances over four seasons in the first team, he left to join then part-time Raith Rovers to enhance his career prospects out-with football. After seven seasons between the sticks, he had spells with Stranraer and Cowdenbeath before returning to Kirkcaldy in 2019 as a player/goalkeeping coach. Reghan Tumilty spent two seasons on the books at Morton. He was a mainstay in the turbulent 2018-19 season, making forty appearances in all competitions. David Hopkin didn’t appear to rate the full-back, sending him out on loan to Jim Duffy’s Dumbarton side for the first half of the 2019-20 season. He was recalled over the festive period but chose to leave the club in the close season to join Raith Rovers. Tale of the Tape Raith Rovers claimed maximum points against Morton last season in their three league meetings. On Matchday 4, Morton fell 5-0 at Starks Park. With Morton already two goals down, captain Jim McAlister was sent off for a dangerous tackle, with Raith Rovers taking full advantage of the numerical difference between the sides. On Matchday 15, an Iain Davidson strike in the twelfth minute gave the away side all three points at Cappielow, with Morton failing to register a single shot on target throughout the ninety minutes. On Matchday 22, a late Jamie Gullan goal split the sides at Starks Park. Photo - GBR Photographs. Opposition Analysis Raith have found the net on five occasions so far this season, once more than Morton. The Fife side have attempted 48 shots (12.0 per 90 minutes) so far this term, joint fourth place in the league, compared to Morton who have attempted 42 shots (8.4 per 90 minutes) this season, ranking The Ton joint seventh. Raith have registered 24 shots on target (6.0 per 90 minutes) this term (2nd in the Championship), compared to Morton having 16 shots on target (3.2 per 90 minutes) so far this season (8th in the Championship). Familiar face Reghan Tumilty has been a creative outlet for the Fife side this term, with two assists in four appearances. I spoke to sport journalist Alan Temple (@AlanFTemple) this week, who spoke about Raith’s efforts to follow on from last season – “After losing a swathe of their top performers from last season — most notably the metronomic Regan Hendry — Rovers’ campaign has been as inconsistent as one might expect. Rebuilding a team and conditioning them to play in John McGlynn’s fluid, free-flowing style isn’t an overnight endeavour. The lights going out on their derby against Dunfermline didn’t help in the quest for momentum. However, there have been flashes of progress — the thrilling 2-1 win over Aberdeen in the Premier Sports Cup; a professional win at Ayr United; the first 65 minutes against Hamilton before all hell broke loose. Even in last weekend's 1-0 home defeat to Queen of the South, Rovers registered 20 shots and 14 corners. They are liberally creating chances but perhaps lack that seasoned, clinical striker to put the ball in the back of the net. How they miss the luckless Lewis Vaughan. The real threat will come from the flanks. Dario Zanatta is a player reborn and will cause havoc cutting in from the left wing as the willing Liam Dick overlaps. With Aidan Connolly injured, Kai Fotheringham and Reghan Tumilty have the same rapport on the right. Dylan Tait has progressed superbly this season and is a tireless presence in midfield, bombing forward and getting shots away. How he has failed to find the net this term remains a mystery. Be warned, a goal is coming. Speaking to John earlier this week, he was full of praise for Gus McPherson and, in particular, his recent recruitment. The captures of Jaakko Oksanen and Gavin Reilly were met with admiration. He fully expects a testing encounter. Nevertheless, a defeat for Rovers would turn a challenging start to the campaign into a disappointing one. My prediction would be 3-1 Raith Rovers with Dario Zanatta scoring and generally giving Michael Ledger a testing afternoon at the coalface. Photo - GBR Photographs.

  7. 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. Looking to improve upon an incredibly disappointing performance and result at Partick Thistle a fortnight ago, the Cappielow side will take confidence from the 1-1 draw against tomorrow’s opponents in this season’s League Cup group stages. Morton fans will be looking forward to casting their eyes over the new arrivals in Gus MacPherson’s squad – with defender Oisin McEntee, midfielders Jaakko Oksanen and Tom Allan and attacker Gavin Reilly all arriving on Sinclair Street in the closing days of the transfer window. This enthusiasm may be tempered slightly by the news that both captain Kyle Jacobs and striker Gozie Ugwu are doubts heading into this clash against a Kilmarnock side tipped as favourites to win the Championship this season. Photo - GBR Photographs. Current Connections While nobody in the current Morton squad have ever played for Kilmarnock, both Gus MacPherson and Andy Millen have turned out for the Ayrshire side. Millen made 57 league appearances for the Ayrshire side between 1993-95, earning a Scotland B cap against Wales B for his endeavours. Gus MacPherson joined Killie in 1991, having failed to make the grade as a Rangers as a youth player. He spent a decade in Ayrshire as a mainstay in their squad, making 354 league appearances for the club. The crowning achievement of his time with Killie was lifting the Scottish Cup in 1997, beating Morton 5-2 in the Quarter Finals. Jason Naismith signed for Kilmarnock in the summer after his release from Premiership side Ross County. Naismith spent six months on loan at Morton in 2012 from parent club St Mirren, marking the first time in history that a player had been loaned between the two rival clubs. After making only seven appearances for The Ton, he returned to Paisley before being sent on loan to Cowdenbeath to complete the season. Stephen McGinn spent the tail end of last season on loan at Sinclair Street. Gus MacPherson utilised the positive relationship he had with the player and convinced him from Hibernian. Debuting away to Dunfermline, McGinn went on to make eight league appearances, including both legs of the playoff final victory against Airdrieonians. Tale of the Tape This is the second meeting of the sides this season, having squared off already in Morton’s ill-fated League Cup campaign. Morton opened the scoring in the sixteenth minute as teenager Lewis McGregor cut inside onto his right foot and curled the ball into the far corner from the edge of the box, grasping his first-team opportunity with both hands. Morton tired late on, with former Morton loanee Jason Naismith’s delivery into the box being pushed towards Kyle Connell who equalised in the first minute of injury time. Tommy Wright’s side went on to win on penalties and progress from the group. Morton’s last win against Kilmarnock came once again in the League Cup, this time in Morton’s successful 2016/17 season. Gary Oliver and Jai Quitongo goals sealed an excellent win for Jim Duffy’s side en route to a League Cup Semi Final appearance for the first time in thirty-five years. You can read our ‘Where Are They Now?’ article for the 2016/17 semi-final squad here. The two teams last shared a division in 1992/93, with the last league meeting between the sides coming on 9th March 1993. Goals from Martin Doak and Jim Tolmie secured a point for The Ton. Photo - GBR Photographs. Opposition Analysis Following their 1-0 home defeat to Inverness on Matchday Four, Kilmarnock sit 3rd in the Championship behind Partick Thistle and the aforementioned Inverness. Both Kilmarnock and Morton have scored five league goals this term, Kilmarnock are top of the league table for shots attempted (11.75 per 90 minutes), with Morton joint 5th in shots attempted (9.00 shots per 90 minutes). The most notable statistical difference between the two sides so far this term is in their defensive capabilities. Kilmarnock have only conceded one goal so far this season, in their 1-0 defeat to Inverness. By contrast, Morton have conceded eight goals to date this term. Zach Hemming has the second best clean sheet in the division so far, with three of his four matches played resulting in shutouts. Hemming has faced the second least number of shots in the league so far (seven shots), as opposed to Morton’s Jack Hamiton who has faced more shots on target than any other goalkeeper in the division (seventeen shots). I spoke to Kilmarnock fan Peter McCormack (@CamMcCo on Twitter), who spoke about the squad rebuild and change of mentality at Kilmarnock as they adjust to life in the second tier – “For Kilmarnock, it has been a summer of rebuilding, taking stock and getting over the shambles of last season and our subsequent, deserved, relegation to the Championship. However, there has been a cautious optimism among the Kilmarnock rank and file support (ignoring the hot heads and bampots who expect instant success after decades of being spoiled by our extended stay in the top flight) as Tommy Wright (and Director of Football James Fowler) have constructed a solid foundation of a team over the last few months. The club have stated that their goal for the season is promotion and the press and bookmakers have backed this opinion likewise. The title of favourites, though, is one which Kilmarnock haven't often been used to. With almost all of last season's team out of contract (thankfully for the most part), as well as the need to change things following successive seasons of poor showings, a clearing of the decks has been undertaken and the replacements drafted in appear to have been of a solid, experienced spine, with a focus on players of a reliable and consistent standard, rather than any attempt at signing "stars" (relatively speaking). Early season form (including pre-season) has been encouraging, with the only blots on our copy book being an unsurprising and fairly expected 2-0 defeat by Hibs at Easter Road and a disappointing 0-1 defeat at Rugby Park by potential title rivals Inverness in our most recent league match. Performances generally have been workmanlike but effective and this squad already plays far more football than last seasons. The additions of new captain Stokes (currently injured) and vice-captain Ewan Murray at centre back have made a huge improvement on last season, as has Hemming in goal, which has allowed a foundation for the likes of McGinn, Polworth, Alston, the impressive Fraser Murray and the evergreen Chris Burke to play through the midfield. Arguably we have been short of experienced, recognised first team centre forwards (academy graduate Innes Cameron had been leading the line but is not yet the finished article, then converted midfielder Scott Robinson who scored a double in our win at Hamilton but is now injured; Rumarn Burrell who is a young forward on loan from Middlesbrough set up the winner against QOTS after coming on as a late sub, but then was also injured), but the deadline day arrival of former Hibs striker Oli Shaw from Ross County and for whom we have paid a transfer fee gives hope that this issue has been addressed. The manager insists a loan striker is still being worked on also, so there may yet be more to come there. In terms of what to expect from Killie, we play a 4-2-3-1 system, we're fairly solid in the centre and stable at the back and we rely on the full backs and the left and right wingers to act as our width and out ball, with Polmont the central creator behind the lone forward. We've shown a tendency to grind out results where last season we would have failed to, and hopefully we will be keen to make up for the no show against ICT last time out in the league (we beat Falkirk 3-1 in our most recent match in the SPFL Trust Trophy, but matches against a side of Falkirk's utter diddiness hardly merit a mention).” Photo - GBR Photographs.

  10. With Finnish midfielder Jaakko Oksanen joining the club on transfer deadline day, Russell Gordon took the opportunity to reminisce about Morton's Flying Finns - Janne Lindberg and Marko Rajamaki.
  11. (Photo- www.tellhimhespele.com) The Flying Finns by Russell Gordon Tuesday's deadline day drama certainly had us all glued to our phones, in what was perhaps the most exciting day of positive movement in and out of Cappielow since the inception of the windows, around a generation ago. Even when Douglas Rae opened the purse strings in the January of 2015 to bolster our promotion charge with the signings of Peter MacDonald, Ross Forbes and the re-signing of Declan McManus, our enthusiasm was tempered by the farcical nature of Michael Tidser's arrival in spite of his ineligibility to actually play until the following season. But with the arrival of Finland Under 21 international Jaako Oksanen on loan from Brentford, it was only natural that those of us of a certain vintage looked back fondly to Nordic influxes of days gone by. I wouldn't be doing them justice to attempt to write about the Great Danes of the 1960s, such as Kai Johansen, Carl Bertlesen, Borge Thorup, Jorn Sorenson, Preben Arentoft and the man in black, Erik Sorenson; but my memory does stretch back to the arrival of Finland internationals Janne Lindberg and Marko Rajamaki in the autumn of 1994. We were first exposed to Janne a month before his arrival at Cappielow when he played for Finland in their opening Euro '96 qualifier against Scotland, inadvertently assisting John Collins' goal as his clearing header fell nicely on the Scotland midfielder's left foot, for him volley the national team into a 2-0 lead in Helsinki, a result Scotland would hold onto as they started what would become a successful qualifying campaign. One of world football's most iconic figures of the 1990s... tussles with French midfielder Didier Deschamps. (Photo-Getty Images) The autumn of 1994 wasn't a happy time at Cappielow. The club had been relegated to the Second Division for the first time in their history, amidst a season-long injury crisis the previous year, and league reconstruction that saw Morton being amongst five clubs relegated from the First Division. A stuttering start to the campaign in '94 did little to suggest that Morton would be pushing for a speedy return to the First Division though, only for them to turn up at Shielfield Park in Berwick with two trialists from Finnish club MyPa47 in the ranks. The result on the day wasn't to be a positive one, as Morton fell to their third league defeat in a row, 1-2 to the hosts having previously fallen 0-1 to Clyde at Cappielow, and suffered a 0-3 hosing at Palmerston Park. But it didn't take Allan McGraw and the board long to decide to take the plunge on Janne and Marko, and a fee of £250,000 found its way to Kouvola, unthinkable for Morton in these times. The signings of the Finns were by no means a quick fix, as results remained inconsistent towards the festive period. Whilst over a quarter of a century has passed, and my memory could be playing tricks on me, the Scottish Cup tie against Kilmarnock in my mind proved to be the turning point of the season, against what was a very good Premier Division team at the time. My standout memories from the 0-0 draw at Rugby Park in late January were Stephen McCahill's header narrowly clearing Dragoje Lekovic's crossbar to deny us a shock win, and the imperious performance on Janne on the day. Alas, Morton were to suffer a narrow extra time replay defeat by the Ayrshire men at a bouncing Cappielow, but kicked on from there, with three wins in February, including an absolutely crucial 1-0 win over Stenhousemuir, only a week after their incredible Scottish Cup slaying of Aberdeen; courtesy of a goal and fantastic performance from Marko. But Morton being Morton, it was never going to be that easy, and a sticky patch in March kept things interesting in what was to be a four-way battle for promotion between ourselves, Dumbarton, Stirling and Stenny. Things were to come good the following month though with crucial wins against East Fife and Clyde, before a memorable 4-3 win on their return trip over the border set up what was effectively a title decider against Dumbarton. Of course, it was all to end joyously, as Marko's incredible goal put the icing on the most delicious of cakes, and we retook our place in the second tier at the first time of asking, bagging a nice little silver pot in the process. Derek McInnes was to win the Player of the Year award, but it would be foolish not to acknowledge the contribution of our two imports. Whether Morton would've been in the promotion race without them is seriously doubtful. A couple of awestruck admirers watch on as Janne launches a Morton attack at Ibrox in 1995. (Photo- Chris McNulty) What wasn't in doubt though, was that Morton with their two Finnish stars were a force to be reckoned with, as they took the following season by storm, with Janne, Derek McInnes and Alan Mahood pulling the strings in midfield and Marko providing a flair on the wing that is still spoken about in glowing terms even now. Whilst there were a number of great performances and results that season, particularly early on, it was on Morton's visit to St. Mirren in late September that Marko perhaps produced his finest performance in a Morton shirt, as he absolutely tormented the Saints defence in a 4-1 win, cementing his place not only in the hearts of the Morton support, but as a hate-figure amongst the Buddies faithful. What a man. Of course, that incredibly exciting team was to come up just short, owing in no small part to the departure of Derek McInnes to Rangers and the season-ending injuries to Janne and Alan Mahood. Marko was to continue to do his bit to drag us through, with vital goals in the run in against Hamilton, both home and away and an admittedly howling miss in the vital 1-0 win at home to fellow promotion hopefuls St. Johnstone. He was of course to equalise in the final day showdown against Dundee United, but Morton were left to rue their misfortune and look forward to the following season. Marko leads the charge in a 3-0 win against Clydebank at Cappielow, on the opening day of the 1996-97 season. (Photo- Chris McNulty) The 1996-97 campaign was to prove both players' final season at the club, and was an anti-climax for us all, as a much-fancied Morton failed to live up to expectations, finishing the season in eighth place, comfortably clear of relegation, but miles away from a promotion play off place, never mind runaway champions St. Johnstone. There were to be highlights, however- Marko's early season winner against Falkirk was delightful, as winners against Falkirk tend to be, and there was the incredible League Cup tie against Aberdeen which ended in a 3-7 defeat, with Morton coming from 0-2 down with 15 minutes of normal time remaining to lead 3-2 going into the last minute, only to suffer another hard-luck story. In truth, with promotion becoming a more remote prospect as the season progressed, McGraw put all his eggs into the Scottish Cup basket, with a fine replay win against Dundee setting up a quarter final with Kilmarnock at a near capacity Cappielow. There was to be no hard-luck story to this cup defeat though, as Morton were resoundingly trounced 2-5 by Killie, in spite of a brief second half fightback. As the season petered out, and the players' contacts ran down, their departures became inevitable and a really thrilling, but oh so brief chapter in Morton's history was to reach its conclusion, to be succeeded by the Scott era, which I'm sure is an article or two for another day. Janne was to go onto pastures new in Germany with FC Saarbrucken before finishing his career back at MyPa47 and embarking on a career in coaching in his homeland, whist Marko was to enjoy brief stints at Hamilton and Livingston, even playing against Morton for the Accies, also finishing his career in his native Finland, with TPS Turku and enjoying a successful coaching career. Both have returned in the intervening years to visit, Marko turning out in a testimonial in 2006 as well as attending a game against Hamilton in 2012 and receiving a rapturous reception. To my knowledge, Janne hasn't made a match on his return, but his daughter Nanne has been a vocal supporter of the club through her social media accounts, so it would be rude not to give her devotion to the cause a mention! Since their departure, we've seen Jani Uotinen flying the flag and collecting a Third Division winners' medal in 2002-03 for his troubles and Jonatan Johansson's fast flowing, easy on the eye (or something like that) brand of football help us secure safety in the rollercoaster 2018-19 season. Let's be honest though, Morton fans love a signing from that part of the world, and will surely take to Jaako. No pressure, but there are some pretty big shoes needing filled, young man!
