Scene Setter

It’s the final match of the Viaplay Cup group stage tomorrow afternoon as Morton welcome Edinburgh City to Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology. The Ton will look to pick up three points following defeat in the Highlands last weekend to Ross County. A win for Morton could earn qualification from Group D but progression would still depend on results elsewhere.

Edinburgh City come into this game looking to finish their cup campaign with a win as they are still to pick up their first points in the Viaplay Cup this season. The cinch League 1 side have one win in their last four matches securing a 2-1 victory against Bonnyrigg Rose in a club friendly.

The one and only time Morton have faced off against Edinburgh City was in the 2017 League Cup group stage when the Ton defeated the Edinburgh side 5-0 at Cappielow.
