Arbroath versus MORTON
Saturday 4 January 2020
The first game of 2020 and the new decade is due to take place on Saturday as the Ton travel up to Arbroath.
This will be Morton’s 20th Ladbrokes Championship match of the season and the Ton will be hoping to start the decade off with a bang with a result in Arbroath.
A trip to Inverness for Dick Campbell’s men in their final match of 2019 saw them earn themselves a 1-0 victory and are now placed in 7th place in the Ladbrokes Championship.
The Licthies will be hoping to continue their good start to the season with a win at Gayfield against the Ton and climb up the table.
It was not to be for Morton in their final match of 2019 when they were defeated 2-1 at home to Partick Thistle and the Ton will be hoping to put in a good performance to ensure they earn the result they desire.
Former Morton goalkeeper Derek Gaston signed for Arbroath in the summer of 2019 after a successful career at Morton. Gaston made over 200 appearances and pulled off some memorable saves in his time, including a sensational save to deny a Stephen Dobbie effort against Queen of the South two seasons ago.
Bobby Linn was also signed by Morton in 2007 and featured for Morton in 22 matches in his time at the club.
