Scene Setter

It’s a break from league action tomorrow afternoon as Morton host Queen of the South in the Scottish Cup Third Round.

The Ton continued to build on good form with a 2-1 win away to Cove Rangers on Saturday, taking the current unbeaten run to eight games with six of those coming as wins. Remaining the form team in the league, Morton will look to take current form and confidence into the cup in the hope securing a spot in the Fourth Round.

Familiar opponents Queen of the South make the trip to Greenock tomorrow afternoon on a run of three wins and two losses in their last five games. The Ton faced Queen of the South on five occasions last season with the Palmerston side winning three of those. The last time both sides met at Cappielow Par supported by Dalrada Technology, Morton came from behind to secure a 2-1 win.
