Match Preview

Morton missing McCann Queen of the South manager Gus McPherson will pick from an unchanged squad for the visit of league leaders Morton. Striker Marc McCusker is still not ready to make his debut and, like last weekend against Hamilton, he will miss out. McPherson is looking for his team to attack the Greenock men from kick-off, he said: "We were very positive last week and played three up front against Hamilton. "We created chances and got the win we deserved which has been great for everyone's confidence here. "A bit of the element of surprise may have gone now and I am sure the Morton boss Allan Moore will have them well warned, but I intend to go out attacking again." Morton will be without Kevin McCann, who has a hamstring problem. He will be the only absentee for manager Allan Moore, who is keeping his player`s feet firmly on the ground. "The time to be excited is with five games to go, not five games in," said Moore. "Whilst we are doing well, there is no point in going overboard. "Raith Rovers led the First Division for a long time last season and never got promoted, so feet are very much on the ground at Morton." The Greenock boss added: "Hamilton went to Palmerston last week as leaders and were beaten so we know that we are in for a really tough game against a gritty and determined side."

Match Report

Smith hat-trick sees off Morton Kevin Smith scored a first-half hat-trick as Queen of the South stunned leaders Morton with a 4-1 dismantling in Scottish Division One. With Morton pressing, the hosts took a surprise lead after 18 minutes when Allan Johnston's corner was headed across goal by Stephen McKenna for Smith to apply the finishing touch. And the Dumfries club extended their lead on the half-hour - Scott McLaughlin crossing for Tom Brighton to head low into the goal from close range. Five minutes later, The Doonhammers made it 3-0 when Smith headed home from another Johnston corner and Smith completed his hat-trick on 36 minutes when Johnston again found the summer signing to score from 20 yards. The home side continued to dominate and could have extended their lead before Peter MacDonald scored a late consolation - his fifth league goal of the season - for a dejected Morton.
