Match Preview

Moore waits on McCaffrey Morton central defender Stuart McCaffrey is an injury doubt for the home clash with Hamilton. McCaffrey is struggling with a heel injury and Cappielow boss Allan Moore's resources have already been hit by the absence of Andy Graham through suspension. Michael Tidser remains sidelined following a recent knee operation and Sean Fitzharris is unavailable because of a hamstring problem. Moore, whose side lost 5-0 to Partick in their last outing said: "We've to hope Stuart makes it as facing Hamilton without three players is difficult enough. "We've been strong at home all season and hopefully that will continue. While there was never five goals between ourselves and Partick it would be good to put that game behind us." Hamilton Academicals will be without defender Lee Kilday. Kilday sustained a groin strain while playing for the reserves in midweek and joins long-term injury victims Alex Neil and Kyle Wilkie on the sidelines. But manager Billy Reid will be able to call on Michael Devlin and Jordan Kilpatrick, who have both shaken off knocks. Reid, whose side is hoping to leapfrog their hosts in the table, said: "There was an extra spring in everyone's step after getting through to the Ramsdens Cup final, but it's back to our bread and butter now. "A win will lift us over Morton, but we'll have to play well as they will be out to make up for their defeat at Partick."

Match Report

Double sub joy for Hamilton Goals from substitutes Paul Currie and Grant Anderson gave Hamilton a 2-0 win over Morton and ended the hosts' 100% home record. The visitors started the game brightly and Morton goalkeeper Colin Stewart had to be alert to push away James McAlister's long-range volley. The Ton fought back after the restart and Marc Smyth's acrobatic overhead kick struck the crossbar early in the second half. But it was Hamilton who took the lead in the 72nd minute when Anderson's inviting cross was headed in by Currie. Five minutes later Anderson got on the scoresheet himself, firing in a right-footed shot from close range to wrap up the points. The defeat means Morton vacated their place at the top of the table and slipped down to fourth.
