Morton Match Preview

This weekend we are on the road for our penultimate away game of the season as we make the trip to Greenock to face Morton.

Morton currently sit just outside the play-off places, two points adrift of third place, Dunfermline and Dundee United in fourth. United do have a game in hand.  Jim Duffy's side are currently seven points ahead of us after 33 games.

The matches between us have been close this season, with a two - one win for Morton at Palmerston and a similar scoreline for us at Cappielow.  The last meeting between the two in February ended in a one - all draw.

Although the chance of making the play-offs has gone for us and our place in the league is secured, boss Gary Naysmith is keen to express we've still got plenty to play for.

"We are professional so we want to finish on a high.  We get paid to play football and to get results.  

The lads were low at the start of the week as realistically we know we have missed out on making the play-offs.  There is a real frustration within the squad as we know we could've done better in a lot of our games. So there is an overriding disappointment, but they have bounced back and have had some good training sessions.

We've been saying if we can't make the play-offs then we have to finish as high as we can.  We all have pride as individuals and as a team so come the end of the season we want to be as high up the table as we can.

We are sitting on the same number of points that we finished with last season, so we want to get 52 and have a nine point improvement.  We haven't had a clean-sheet for a while, so we want to get back to that, Stephen Dobbie wants to finish the top scorer in the Championship, so wither it be as a team or individuals we all have something to play for.

We have three games to go and we wont be taking our foot off the pedal, we owe that to ourselves and to other clubs in the division, we won't be just seeing the season out.

As far as the squad goes for the game, Owen Bell is still out with a hip injury and we are keeping an eye on Dan Carmichael and Stephen Dobbie following their recent injuries.  But Alan Martin is back in the squad after his layoff as is Ross Fergusson who has recovered from concussion".
