Inverness C.T. versus MORTON
Tuesday 3rd February 2020
Cappielow Park, Greenock
By Ewan Boyle
For the third time in the space of a week, Morton face another away fixture in the Ladbrokes Championship as they travel to Inverness for a night of football under the floodlights.
Morton have now gone on an impressive run of eight unbeaten games in the league and have an opportunity to extend their run to nine games with their match against the Caley Jags.
The Ton have also won their last two away fixtures and will hope to top off this busy week of football with a win in Inverness to make it three wins on the bounce on the road.
A win for Morton, dependent on results elsewhere, may see the Cappielow side head into fourth place and the playoff positions with nine games to go in the season after Tuesday’s fixture.

Last Time Round
It was a day of revenge for Morton in the previous fixture as they got a very important 2-1 victory over Inverness at Cappielow as the Ton headed into 7th place following the victory.
The Ton got off to a great start as Peter Grant sent a lobbed ball over the top of the Inverness defence on 6 minutes to send through Bob McHugh who cheekily dinked the ball over Mark Ridgers to give Morton the lead
Inverness would get their equaliser on 27 minutes when Mitchell Curry got the goal for Inverness as a knock down from Jordan White set up the chance for Curry who made no mistake about it and slotted the ball from a difficult angle into the goal on the half-volley.
But it would be Morton who would get the winner which both sides were searching for as a header through from Chris Millar sent Bob McHugh through on goal following a mistake from the Inverness defender which McHugh pounced on and slotted the ball under the goalkeeper to give the Ton the lead.
