Last Time Round

Ten-man Morton suffered a disappointing 4-0 defeat at the hands of Group F top seeds Motherwell in the Betfred Cup last July.

A depleted Ton side minus three key defenders went 2-0 down to goals from Charles Dunne and Chris Cadden before Gary Harkins was sent off for a high challenge that referee Kevin Clancy deemed worthy of a straight red.

The Premiership outfit added two more after the break, through Richard Tait and substitute Louis Moult, to claim all three points and climb above The Ton into top spot in the section with a game in hand.
