MORTON versus INVERNESS C.T.
Wednesday 27 January 2021
It’s back to midweek football for Morton tomorrow night as they take on Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the Scottish Championship at Cappielow.
The match was originally scheduled to be played on Boxing Day but was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch therefore tomorrow evening will be the first encounter between both sides this season.
For Anton McElhone, a win against the Highlanders would be the perfect response to Saturday’s 2-1 defeat against Queen of the South and the interim ‘Ton boss will be hoping his side can right the wrong’s of the weekend to secure all three points.
John Robertson’s Inverness sit 4 points behind Morton in the league and head in to tomorrow night on the back of a number of postponements with their last fixture being played on 29 December, a 1-1 draw with Dunfermline Athletic at East End Park.
