Match Preview

Smyth doubt for Morton Morton defender Marc Smyth is a major doubt through injury for the clash with Livingston. Summer signing Andy Graham remains out after surgery on a fractured cheekbone and winger Sean Fitzharris is still not available to manager Allan Moore because of a hamstring problem. The two sides have scored 34 goals between them already this season. Moore said: "Everyone will be anticipating a high-scoring game and I do not mind if it - is provided we score one more than they do. "It may not work out that way as both sides have quite good defences and while our goalscorers have been getting all the attention we have had four shut-outs in a row and it would be great to make that five." Livingston manager Gary Bollan is giving striker Iain Russell until the last minute to prove he is 100% fit to face his former side at Cappielow. If Russell fails to make it Bollan will turn to either Kenny Deuchar or Rory Boulding. He said: "Iain is carrying a slight knock and he will only play if he is totally fit. "Kenny came in and scored in midweek and Rory has done well since joining, so we are quite fortunate to have a number of good strikers at this club. "People will expecting goals aplenty in this game after the way both sides have started the season and hopefully they will get them especially from Livingston."

Match Report

Macdonald keeps his cool Peter MacDonald's second-half penalty gave Morton a 2-1 win over Livingston, maintaining the Ton's unbeaten start to the season. Morton started the game the brighter and scored after just nine minutes when Michael Tidser's 25-yard effort beat the outstretched Livi goalkeeper Andrew McNeil. The Ton hadn't conceded this season before coming into this game but they were finally breached in the 55th minute. Paul Di Giacomo hauled down Jason Talbot inside the area and Iain Russell, who notched 23 league goals last term, coolly converted. Keaghan Jacobs then spurned a glorious chance to put Livi ahead shortly afterwards, but volleyed wide from six yards out. MacDonald stepped up to net from the spot in the 64th minute when goalscorer Tidser was fouled by David Sinclair. Rory Boulding should have grabbed an equaliser for Livingston right at the death but he crashed a close-range volley past the post.
