Kilday back for Morton in quest for third successive home victory

Morton will add fit-again defender Lee Kilday to their squad as they bid for a third straight home win with victory against Raith.

Knee injuries rule out Frank McKeown and Conor Pepper while Michael Tidser is absent after groin surgery, but Peter MacDonald could make the bench after overcoming a back problem.

Manager Jim Duffy said: "We are looking to finish the season strongly and winning this game would help in that objective.

"Raith have a healthy advantage in fourth place and deserve great credit, but we will look to beat them.

"They have won the three games between us this season and we don't want that record extended."

Raith duo Ryan Hardie and Harry Panayiotou are on international duty while injuries rule out David Bates (calf), Scott Robertson (groin) and Lewis Vaughan (knee), but Iain Davidson is available again.

Manager Ray McKinnon said: "We have needed late winners in the three games with Morton and that shows just how close the games have been.

"They are a good side who have had a terrific season following promotion, but having won at Cappielow earlier this season we will look to do so again.

"The players have been terrific recently and we have got ourselves into a good position, but we still need to get over the finishing line."
