Match Preview


Duo missing for Morton

Morton boss Allan Moore faces former club Stirling Albion at Cappielow without injured pair Ryan Kane and Brian Graham.

Centre back Stewart Greacen is available after a calf strain but he is unlikely to walk straight back into a side that scored seven times at Stranraer last Saturday.

Moore said: "We have looked like a side that would not concede many goals since the start of pre-season and last week we looked like a side that would score lots of goals.

"In saying that, I would settle for a 1-0 win to get three points on the board.

"As the home team we have to set the correct tempo for this game and if we do that we will do okay."

Stirling Albion boss John O'Neill could hand a trialist a starting berth.

O'Neill is looking to surprise his former boss, Allan Moore, by including the unnamed striker in the starting line-up.

Having seen similar deals fall through, O'Neill is keeping his fingers crossed that the move goes through.

Defender Brian Allison is suspended but Ross Forsyth is available after a ban with O'Neill hoping to get the Second Division champions off to a flying start.

The Albion boss said: "We missed Ross Forsyth last week and it is good to have him available for this one. It would be great to get off to a solid start with a win in our first match in this league."

Match Report

Bore draw for Morton Morton and Stirling shared a dour stalemate in their opening Irn-Bru Division One clash. In a game of few chances, tempers became frayed as the match wore on and seven players entered the referee's notebook. In the first half, both sides were largely restricted to efforts from distance, the best coming from Morton's Peter Weatherson whose 30-yard strike was parried to safety by Stirling keeper Scott Christie. Just after that effort in the 35th minute Stewart Kean should have given Morton the lead but scuffed his shot wide from 12 yards. Christie was alert once more five minutes after the break when he tipped a volley from Michael Tidser round the post. He was undoubtedly busier than his counterpart Colin Stewart in the Morton goal as Stirling offered precious little by way of an attacking threat.
