Match Preview

MacGregor out for Morton Morton boss Allan Moore will welcome back defender David MacGregor for the visit of Falkirk. However, midfielder Darren Young misses out again with an ongoing calf problem and striker Kevin Kelbie is a doubt. Morton have failed to beat their opponents in three attempts so far this season, but Moore believes his side are due a slice of luck against the Bairns this time round. He said: "We have played well in all our games so far and only have a point to show for it. "Hopefully we can play well again in this one and get a wee bit of luck that will see us get all three points. "They need a win for their promotion push but we want the points as we want to finish strongly." Falkirk travel with only suspended striker Carl Finnigan unavailable to manager Steven Pressley. The Bairns boss will be looking to get his side's title charge back on track after the goalless draw at Cowdenbeath in midweek left them 10 points behind leaders Dunfermline, with three games in hand. Pressley said: "It has been a strange week as we moved from the high of defeating Raith Rovers to drawing at Central Park. "It was not the ideal result but it is not the end of things as matters are almost still very much in our own hands. "A win at Morton would certainly help in getting things going again and if we win our games in hand we would move to within a point of Dunfermline. "We still have to play them and they still have to play Raith Rovers."

Match Report

Duffie snatches point for Falkirk Kieran Duffie's 87th-minute strike earned Falkirk a point in a 2-2 draw against Morton at Cappielow Park. The home side dominated the opening stages, and after Carlo Monti drilled a free-kick against the crossbar they went in front after nine minutes, David O'Brien netting from 12 yards. Both sides had further first-half opportunities, Thomas Scobbie heading over for the Bairns while away goalkeeper Robert Olejnik saved Derek Lyle's volley. It was the away side who scored next, though, with Ryan Flynn crossing for Mark Stewart to equalise from close range after 61 minutes. But the Ton regained their lead 17 minutes later when Lyle crossed for Brian Graham to score from six yards, and that looked like being the winner until Duffie fired home from 18 yards.
