Never In Doubt.

By Russell Gordon.   Montrose away it was then, after it had looked like Morton were going to be forced into renewing hostilities with old pals, Falkirk. On paper an easier tie, but given Falkirk's spectacular (not to mention hilarious) collapse, that possibly wasn't the case. Morton made their second trip in just over a week up to Angus and could have been forgiven for having a bit of

(Photo- Gary Bradley) Departures, Defeats, Draws and Dismissals.   A Review of Morton's 2020-21 Season, Part Two. By Russell Gordon   As 2020 came to an end and 2021 began, Morton could actually look forward to the new year with a degree of optimism, in spite of all the uncertainty in the background. Sitting in a comfortable position in the table, and with a fixture list that looked quite favourable, even the most pessimistic of observers would've looked upon the month of

Storm Clouds Are Gathering...

(Photo- Gary Bradley) Storm Clouds are Gathering... A Review of Morton's 2020-21 Season, Part One. By Russell Gordon   Well, that's it finished, then. Another season of struggle and a seventh consecutive season in the Championship awaits for Morton. When we look back in years to come, we'll see a ninth placed finish and a comfortable play off campaign that secured our Championship status with the minimum of fuss. But boy, that doesn't even scratch the surface of one of the mo

Match Preview - Airdrieonians vs Morton (Playoff Final 18th/21st May)

Airdrieonians vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. It’s the last chance saloon for Morton. The Cappielow side must best Airdrieonians over a minimum of 180 minutes as both sides battle it out to secure the last available Championship berth next season. The League One side will host their Championship counterparts on Tuesday night at The Excelsior Stadium, with Cappielow playing host to the second leg on Friday night in front of the BBC Scotland cameras. These matches will also b

Match Preview - Montrose vs Morton (Championship Playoff Semi Final)

Montrose vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon After Friday’s disappointing stalemate against Arbroath, it was confirmed that Morton would be the Championship’s representatives in the relegation playoffs. The 0-0 draw encapsulated The Ton’s season thus far, with a lack of attacking prowess handicapping the Greenock side as they failed to register a single shot on target in the ninety minutes. MacPherson will be forced into changing his defensive setup as club captain Sean McGinty

Match Preview - Arbroath vs Morton (Championship 30th April)

Scott Bannerman. Brian Wake. Carlo Monti. Greg Kiltie. Charlie Telfer. Among the nerves and pessimism surrounding this evening’s relegation shootout, there is an opportunity for someone to place their name among those who have stepped up when the club has needed them most. Morton and Ayr both have 28 points to their name, with Arbroath boasting one more point, sitting on 29. With David Hopkin’s side taking on an Inverness side with nothing to play for, Morton’s task sounds simple on paper. It’s

A Blast From The Past...

(Photo-D Sargent, Ayr United FC) A Blast From The Past... by Russell Gordon With apathy and pessimism in plentiful supply ahead of Friday's winner-takes-all relegation showdown at Gayfield, someone has to look for some crumb of comfort heading into the game. So, whilst it may well be a case of clutching at straws, it should be noted that the weight of recent history is very much in Morton's favour. There's no point in pretending that we're not in a familiar position here, with the

Match Preview - Morton vs Alloa (Championship 24th April)

Morton vs Alloa – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon 6th QOTS – 31 points (GD -11) 7th Arbroath – 29 points (GD -5) 8th Ayr – 27 points (GD -6) 9th Morton – 27 points (GD -11) Morton vs Alloa. Ayr vs QOTS. Dunfermline vs Arbroath. I’ve attempted to compose the opening paragraph of this week’s match preview a few times, however a quick glance towards the Championship table gives far more context than my meek scribing could ever provide. With two fixtures left in the

Morton vs Hearts Match Preview (Championship 20th April)

Hearts vs Morton – Match Preview by Russell Gordon/Dean McKinnon. Morton run out in front of the TV cameras tomorrow to host newly crowned Champions Hearts with far more on their minds than applauding the achievement of their visitors. With the business end of the season well and truly here, and realistically a three-way race to avoid ninth place and a play-off berth to avoid the drop between ourselves, Arbroath and David Hopkin's Ayr United, a point, or even a win would provide a mass

Match Preview - Motherwell vs Morton (Scottish Cup 16th April)

Motherwell vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon Morton are tasked with overcoming Premiership opposition this evening in the Scottish Cup as The Ton aim to reach the Quarter Finals of our nation’s showpiece trophy for the first time since 2017/18. With the winner of the Stranraer vs Hibs clash awaiting the winner of this evening’s clash, and a crunch match against Hearts midweek, Gus MacPherson’s squad management will be key to Morton’s chances in the next two fixtures. Having be

Match Preview - Dundee vs Morton (Championship 10th April)

Dundee vs Morton - Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Morton travel to Dens Park tomorrow with a clear mantra - win two of the remaining four games. With the Championship relegation battle on a knife edge, and a change of ownership on the horizon, the stakes have never been higher for the Cappielow side. The Ton will look to recover from the Nikolai Todorov inspired mauling on Tuesday night in the hands of Inverness and attempt to lay a glove on a Dundee side that appear to be peaking at

Match Preview - Morton vs Inverness (Championship 6th April)

Morton vs Inverness - Match Preview by Dean McKinnon It’s back to league business for The Ton tomorrow night in the first of five crunch matches as Gus MacPherson looks to retain Championship football at the Tale of the Bank for another season. Morton will look to improve upon a somewhat clunky and pedestrian performance against part time East Fife on Saturday, with The Ton being far from their best despite Robbie Muirhead’s curling effort securing a Fourth Round tie against Motherwell
