Match Preview

Moore turns to trialists Manager Allan Moore will include one Scottish and one overseas trialist in his squad for Morton's clash with Ross County. However, he will have to do without defender David MacGregor and midfielder Carlo Monti, who have been ruled out, while on-loan Celtic youngster Sean Fitzharr faces a late fitness test. But he hopes his side put in a vintage performance in front of their home support, saying: "We have picked up more points at home than away from home but we have played better away from Cappielow. If we can turn in a good performance and get the crowd behind us I am sure it would help us get a win." Moore is also hoping that County's midweek cup exploits have had an impact saying: "If there is any weariness in their legs we have to be up for taking advantage." Ross County are boosted by having Michael Gardyne back in the ranks to take on his former club. However, their joy will be tempered by the news frontmen Andy Barrowman and Steven Craig remain on the sidelines due to injury. And Dingwall manager Derek Adams is hoping that his side's Co-operative Insurance Cup exploits against Dundee United, in which they were beaten in extra time, have no bearing on his squad. "Going to Greenock to face Morton is a long trek after 120 minutes in difficult conditions but we have a good record at Cappielow and one that I am keen to keep going by winning," he said. "The guys that played in midweek all came through it intact which is good news, although there are a few carrying slight strains but nothing that will keep them out of this game."

Match Report

County denied in stalemate Paul Di Giacomo hit the post late on as Ross County drew 0-0 with Morton. Ross County made a lively start as Martin Scott volleyed straight at Colin Stewart from 35 yards and then Michael Gardyne connected with a Mark Corcoran cross but could not prevent his shot from sailing over the bar. After the break Morton had a great chance to open the scoring when Michael McGovern parried a Stewart Kean header past the post before Brian Graham shot wide from a Sean Fitzharris cross. Michael Tidser brought the best out of McGovern twice as Morton piled on the pressure but it was County who could have sneaked it when Di Giacomo volleyed against the upright after 78 minutes from 12 yards.
