Match Preview

Five missing for Pars Dunfermline could be without five players when Morton visit East End Park. Neil McGregor, Andy Dowie, Nicky Phinn and Steven Bell are all ruled out and on-loan St Johnstone stopper Kevin Rutkiewicz will undergo a late fitness test. Pars assistant boss Gerry McCabe said: "We are hopeful that Kevin will be available for selection but if he is not we will be along much the same lines as last week. "I watched Morton in midweek and they gave a real threatening performance against Falkirk and looked the more likely side to score so we need to be on our guard. "Michael Tidser was excellent throughout that game as was David O'Brien so Morton have players that can certainly create chances." Morton's only absentee is midfielder Darren Young who has a calf injury. Cappielow manager Allan Moore, who like Young is a former Dunfermline player, is relishing this weekend`s encounter. He said: "I am really looking forward to this game as the matches between the sides are usually good football contests. "We won 2-1 at our place but I believed that we actually played better in the game we lost 2-0 at East End Park earlier in the season when Dunfermline showed us how to convert chances. "We played another promotion chasing side Falkirk in midweek and could have won that one so we have nothing to fear in this game. We will plan to go out and attack them."

Match Report

Morton stun Pars Dunfermline lost ground at the top of Division One and their unbeaten home record as Morton claimed a 3-1 win at East End Park. David Lyle set Morton on the way after just 35 seconds, scoring from close range. Both sides then had chances before the away side got the crucial second goal three minutes after the break, David O'Brien converting from six yards. Alex Keddie almost pulled a goal back for the home side after 65 minutes but he nodded over. They did get on the scoresheet 13 minutes from time when Joe Cardle fed Liam Buchanan, who easily converted. However, Peter Weatherston made the game safe for the Ton after 88 minutes, netting his fifth of the season from 12 yards.
