Fresh from their courageous mid-week performance against league leaders Dundee United, it is a second match in a row on home turf for Morton with a match against Queen of the South.

The rearranged game from Dundee United was played on Tuesday night with Morton being unlucky not to earn at least a point in the match at Cappielow.

Queen of the South go into the match having had a full week off to prepare for Saturday’s fixture as they had no midweek fixture to play in.

Queens’ last match in the league ended in a 2-1 defeat at home to Partick Thistle seeing them being 7th place in the Ladbrokes Championship.

Last Time Round

It was not to be in our previous fixture against Queen of the South as the Ton fell to a 1-0 defeat away to Queen of the South after a courageous second half effort.

The Doonhamers broke the deadlock on 17 minutes when El Bakhtaoui’s shot at the edge of the box trickled past Danny Rogers and gave the home team the lead at Palmerston.

A magnificent save from Robby McCrorie denied Nicky Cadden’s effort on 70 minutes as Cadden found space for himself at the left side of the box around 18 yards out but his shot was palmed away from the danger area.

But despite continued pressure from the Ton, they were unable to get the equaliser in which they desired at Palmerston Park.
