Scene Setter

It’s top against bottom in the form table tomorrow afternoon as Morton come up against Partick Thistle in the cinch Championship. Last time out it was a match to forget for Morton as Partick ran out 5-1 winners at Firhill.

The Ton remain the form team in the league following a 1-1 draw at Somerset Park against Ayr United. The current unbeaten run has stretched to six games now, four of those being wins. Morton also go into this match following a double award week as Dougie Imrie and Robbie Muirhead were named Manager and Player of the Month for September/October 2022.

Partick Thistle will make the trip to Greenock hoping to change recent form having only picked up one win from their last five cinch Championship matches, losing the other four. Last time out between these sides at Cappielow it was a 2-1 win for Morton with Robbie Muirhead completing the comeback from 1-0 down.
