Match Preview

Morton welcome back striker Derek Lyle to their squad for the visit of Ross County. The former Hamilton man missed out against Airdrie in the Scottish Cup in midweek as he had not been signed in time to feature. Defender Marc Smyth returns from suspension however the game has come too soon for the injured pair of Darren Young and Sean Fitzharris. Greenock boss Allan Moore is looking for his team to climb the table. He said: "If we win we could go to fifth but more importantly, create a six point gap between ourselves and Ross County. "We have a wee sense of injustice following the 2-2 draw at their place when they scored deep into an extended injury time period and we will use that to try and win this game." Ross County are without four players. Defender Gary Miller is banned and trio Darren McCormack, Paul Lawson and Michael Gardyne are all out injured. Summer signing Darren Smith, who has been out for three months with a thumb problem, is included in manager Willie McStay's squad after having his cast removed. McStay is targeting his first win as County boss: "Morton are very tricky opponents, however this should be a great game as there always is a cup-tie atmosphere at Cappielow. "The last time we played each other it was a very open game and if we convert the chances we have been making we stand a great chance of winning."

Match Report

Jenkins leaves it late Morton contented their unbeaten start to 2011 with Allan Jenkins hitting a late winner in the 2-1 victory over Ross County. The hosts had to do it the hard way after falling behind to Steven Craig's first-half strike, but goals from Derek Lyle and Jenkins after the break saw the Ton make it six without defeat. In stark contrast, the shot-shy Staggies had not managed to find the back of the net this year, but Mark Corcoran's cross on 38 minutes was coolly slotted home by Craig to give them a surprise lead. However, Lyle hauled his side level as he scored his second goal in as many games after lashing in a powerful 20-yard strike just before the hour mark. The turnaround was completed when Jenkins drilled home from 12 yards to grab his sixth of the season in the 82nd minute.
