Match Preview

Moore injury concerns for Allan Morton boss Allan Moore could be without five players for the match against his former employers Stirling Albion. Goalkeeper Kevin Cuthbert and striker Sean Fitzharris join Darren Young, Allan Jenkins and Kevin Kelbie on the sidelines through injury. Moore, whose side sit sixth in the table, is demanding consistency from his men. "We hope to move up the table a couple of places between now and the end of the season. We have to be more consistent as our performances and results against the sides at the top of the table are better than those in the other half," he said. "The boys turned up and put on a great show against Falkirk, particularly in the first half, and we need them to turn up and do the same again against Stirling."MSUBBED Defender Scott Buist will miss out for Stirling's through suspension. Albion's cause is further hindered by fitness doubts over Brian Allison and Tom Brighton, both of whom are struggling with knocks. Manager Jocky Scott has told his men that to have any chance of surviving they have to tighten things up at the back. "We should not be losing the goals we are losing and if we can stop doing that we have a chance," he said. "The games between Stirling and Morton have been extremely close this season and it would be a real boost to everyone if we can end this really disappointing run and nick the game this time."

Match Report

Morton rediscover winning feeling Morton picked up their first win in five matches by despatching of rock bottom 10-man Stirling 2-0 at Cappielow Park. The home side went in front after nine minutes, Albion`s Ross Forsyth putting through his own net while trying to clear David O`Brien`s cross. They doubled their lead after 36 minutes, O`Brien receiving a pass from Peter Weatherston before converting from six yards. Albion goalkeeper Callum Reidford prevented the Ton increasing their lead making impressive second-half saves from Allan Jenkins and Brian Graham. But hapless Stirling could not make the most of Reidford`s form and their misery was complete six minutes from time when Christopher Aitken, who had only come on as a 76th-minute substitute, was sent off for violent conduct.
