Match Preview

Young must wait for debut Morton have received international clearance for new signing Derek Young, but he will miss out against leaders Ross County due to a ban incurred at the end of his spell at Aberdeen. Striker Peter MacDonald is back in contention for a starting place after missing out at Livingston last week, but injuries continue to rule out Stuart McCaffrey, Sean Fitzharris and Michael Tidser, while Marc Smyth is doubtful. After three games without a win Cappielow manager Allan Moore said: "Last week's draw at Livingston stopped the rot after two disappointing defeats and we can build on that now." Ross County will be without injured pair Rocco Quinn and Sam Morrow. Midfielder Quinn is still struggling with a thigh strain and striker Morrow has a hamstring strain. Manager Derek Adams is also without striker Steven Craig, who sits out the sixth game of an eight-match ban . Adams said: "From the reports I've seen Morton played very well at Livingston last weekend and were unlucky not to win. "They could have increased fire-power with Peter McDonald available, so we have to be on our guard. They will really want to cut into the advantage we have on them at the moment. "We played really well in our last away game at Dundee and a repeat of that will be needed to succeed."

Match Report

County enjoy away-day success A strike from Stuart Kettlewell and a Colin Stewart own-goal handed Ross County a 2-0 win at Morton. An even first period brought very few chances as both teams cancelled each other out. But Kettlewell broke the deadlock after 34 minutes with the first real chance of the game when the midfielder converted from close range following Colin McMenamin's cross. Morton battled throughout the second half but struggled to craft opportunities, while Iain Vigurs and Richard Brittain both came close to doubling the visitors' lead with long-range efforts, only to be denied by Stewart. His own-goal three minutes into injury time sealed County's win with the goalkeeper putting through his own net after doing well to parry Kurtis Byrne's original effort on goal.
