Fresh from their comeback against Partick Thistle, Morton now face Inverness Caledonian Thistle on Friday night in what is set to be a long journey up to the Caledonian Stadium for the match.

For a second week in a row, the game will be shown live on BBC and the Ton will be hoping to put on another impressive performance for the cameras and fans.

Morton can make a huge statement of intent with a win at Inverness as it will see the team sit 2nd place in the league, with the rest of the Ladbrokes Championship fixtures being played on Saturday afternoon.

Caley Thistle come into the game following a 0-0 draw away at Dundee and will be hoping that with the help of the home crowd, they can get a victory against the in-form Morton team.

Inverness sit in 6th place in the Ladbrokes Championship, 2 points behind Morton ahead of the game at the Caledonian Stadium.

Last Time Round

A late Inverness Caledonian Thistle goal saw Morton take a point from a hard-fought match with the Highlanders at Cappielow in the previous match between the two sides.

However, the point won could prove vital as the Ton travelled to Falkirk the following Saturday in the hope of distancing themselves from the bottom of the Ladbrokes Championship.

Morton started the second half brightly as Jack Iredale went on a lovely run down the left-hand side and crossed into the box, finding Gary Oliver, who dragged the ball past the post.

As time went on Inverness started to creep back into the game. Shots from Liam Polworth and Jordan White saw Inverness Caley look more threating.

But a disappointing late goal saw the game end in a 2-2 draw after what was an end-to-end match.
