Match Preview

Tidser back after ban Midfielder Michael Tidser returns after a ban for Morton's clash with promotion-chasing Falkirk. However, Darren Young remains a doubt with a calf injury along with striker Derek Lyle, who has a hamstring problem. Manager Allan Moore's men battled back to grab a draw against Dundee at the weekend, and Moore said: "Dundee was a tough test and we started slowly but came back a lot better in the second half. "We deserved a draw and will be encouraged by that, however Falkirk will be another tough game. "They will view this match as an opportunity to close the gap on Raith Rovers and Dunfermline. But we have ambitions of our own at Morton and I will be sending my side out to win." Falkirk midfielder Mark Millar sits out the trip as he serves the second game of his suspension. The Bairns are looking to close the gap on the leading pair of Raith and Dunfermline, but boss Steven Pressley is playing things cool. He said: "There is still a long way to go in this league but obviously a win would send out a real statement of our intentions. "Both games at our place against Morton have been tight and I don`t see this one being any different. "We gave a strong performance against Cowdenbeath at the weekend and it would be good to add a bit of flair to this one."

Match Report

Falkirk frustrated by Morton Falkirk lost further ground on Division One front-runners Raith Rovers after being held to a 0-0 draw at Morton. The Bairns are now eight points behind Raith although they still have two games in hand on their title rivals. Both sides were limited to a number of long-range efforts in the first 45 minutes, although Thomas Scobbie went close for Falkirk with a strong header from Stewart Murdoch's inswinging corner just before the interval. Morton midfielder Michael Tidser had his side's best chance in the 48th minute but his effort from 12 yards flew just wide of the goal. Mark Stewart could have won it late on for Falkirk but Morton keeper Kevin Cuthbert tipped his effort round the post.
