Scene Setter

Morton and Dundee take centre stage live in front of the BBC Scotland cameras tomorrow evening as the Ton look to build on their first win of 2023.

Morton ended their winless start to 2023 last Saturday with a 3-2 win at home over league leaders Queen’s Park and another win tomorrow night could see the Ton move to within two points of third place depending on results elsewhere on Saturday.

Gary Bowyer’s Dundee side currently sit second in the league just one point behind first place with a game in hand and will be looking to take that position with a win tomorrow night. The Dee come into this match with three wins from their last five matches across all competitions, beating Cove Rangers last time out.

Both sides will be looking to break the recent deadlock in this fixture with the last four matches ending a draw and the two most recent ties finishing without any goals.
