Ayr United versus MORTON

cinch Championship

Saturday 8th April 2023

Somerset Park

Kick-off 3pm

Scene Setter

Morton make the trip down to Ayrshire tomorrow afternoon in a cinch Championship clash with Ayr United. The Ton will look to get back to winning ways tomorrow in a match that has big implications on the fight for a playoff spot.

Morton head into tomorrow’s clash on the back of defeat at home to Inverness, a game that they will feel extremely unlucky not to have come away with anything from. A win tomorrow would see the Ton move to within three points of Ayr United in third place with a game in hand to come on Tuesday evening.

Lee Bullens’ Ayr United side were defeated last time out against Arbroath and come into this match with two wins from their last five. The Honest Men will be looking to solidify their position in the top four with a win tomorrow moving them to within one point of Dundee in second place.
