Scene Setter

Despite a cup exit last week, the Ton still come into this match on the back of nine league games unbeaten, six of those coming as wins. The last league outing at home for Morton was a strong 2-1 victory against Partick Thistle. Queen’s Park are coming off the back of a 2-0 victory against Montrose in the SPFL Trust Trophy.

Morton currently sit fourth in the cinch Championship just three points off the top of the table. A win tomorrow afternoon could see the Ton reach the summit should results elsewhere go in favour of the Cappielow side. Queen’s Park are positioned just one point above Morton in the table and will be looking to build on recent form of five wins from their last five games in all competitions.

The last time these two sides met was at the start of October in a match that saw Morton come away with a 2-1 win.
