Match Preview

Fitzpatrick blow for Ross Ross County defender Marc Fitzpatrick has joined the list of players that will sit out the visit of Morton. Centre-back Darren McCormack as well as strikers Sam Morrow and Garry Wood are also missing against a side that County boss Derek Adams reckons will be challenging for the title this season. Adams said: "Morton have bought well during the summer and are managed by a good manager in Allan Moore, so I wouldn`t be surprised if they are up near the top this season. "We were more like the side I want us to be against Queen's Park last Saturday and if we build on that we will do more than okay against Morton." Summer signings Andy Graham and Sean Fitzharris continue to be absent for Ross County. Manager Allan Moore has taken a midfielder with First Division experience in his squad as a trialist, although the unnamed player is only expected to be on the bench. Moore is still sore about a game at Victoria Park last December and hopes to put that right. He said: "Dingwall is a long way to go and not get a result and last season they scored an equaliser six minutes into injury time and that still irritates me. "We went back up in March looking to put that right and failed, so hopefully we can do it this time."

Match Report

Dour draw for County Ross County made an uninspired start to their First Division campaign as they were held to a goalless draw by Morton. After a cagey opening period in which the sides battled for the initiative without creating any clear-cut chances, Paul Di Giacomo almost put Morton ahead. Picking the ball up 35 yards from goal, he unleashed a superb effort only to be thwarted by an excellent Michael Fraser save. Grant Evans headed narrowly wide from the resulting corner, with the visitors continuing to pile on the pressure prior to half-time. But they were unable to break the deadlock, and after the interval it was a different story as the home side came back into the game. Gary Miller had the best opportunity with nine minutes remaining but he was unable to beat Colin Stewart as the spoils were shared.
