Morton v St Mirren

Romario Sabajo has left Morton before the visit of Renfrewshire rivals St Mirren.

The PSV academy graduate's short-term contract has expired at the Cappielow club, who are looking to bounce back from a last-gasp defeat to Raith Rovers.

Morton manager Jim Duffy will be without Frank McKeown (knee), Michael Tidser (stomach muscle) and Peter MacDonald (knee) for the Championship encounter.

"Overall we enjoyed a good first half of the season, even if it did finish on a low note," Duffy said.

"It would be great to get the second half off to a flier with a win over St Mirren."

St Mirren will again be without the injured Jason Naismith (knee), Jim Goodwin and Alan Gow (both ankle) as manager Alex Rae looks for a second win in his third game in charge.

"We need to start turning things around and winning this game would be a terrific start in doing that," he said.

"Throughout the season St Mirren have been better away from home than at home and hopefully this game will see that continue.

"Morton have done well since being promoted and we need to be wary."
