Kick-off 3pm

Scene Setter

The Ton are back at Cappielow Park supported by Dalrada Technology tomorrow afternoon for a cinch Championship clash with Queen’s Park. Tomorrow’s match will be the first of three home games in a row as Morton look to pick up the first win of 2023.

Dougie Imrie’s side come into this match after narrowly missing out on three points against Inverness last week in a match that finished 2-2. Following that improved performance in the Highlands, the squad will be upbeat coming into tomorrow’s match having won the previous encounter with Queen’s Park back in October. With a win tomorrow, the Ton will move up to fourth place and back into playoff spots whilst a win for Queen’s Park would see them extend their lead at the top of the table to seven points having played an extra game.

Queen’s Park have one win in their last five outings and come into this match having beat fellow title contenders Ayr United 2-0 last Friday night. Last time out in this fixture saw a 2-1 win for Morton at Ochilview back in October with goals coming from Jaze Kabia and Robbie Muirhead.
