Morton V Raith - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


McMenamin sharpens Morton attack

First Division leaders Morton will include new signing from Ross County, striker Colin McMenamin, in their squad for the visit of Raith and defender Willie Dyer is also available after suspension.

But Steven Stirling, who continues to recover from a broken leg, and Archie Campbell, who has a pelvic problem, are both sidelined.

Manager Allan Moore, facing a selection dilemma, said: "Craig Reid and Scott Taggart have done really well as full-backs in Willie's absence and Peter Weatherson along with Peter MacDonald, have been great up front.

"The key to winning this game will be picking the right players to score goals and the right players to keep our former striker Brian Graham quiet.

"I'm in a fortunate position with the players I have available."

Raith will welcome back Simon Mensing from a one-game ban, but Dougie Hill is suspended following his dismissal against Hamilton last week.

Winger Grant Anderson is a doubt after suffering from a virus and Stark's Park boss Grant Murray said: "Morton are deservedly at the top of the league and showed last week against Livingston that they are determined to stay there.

"We know that we are in for a hard shift.

"Our last game with them ended 3-3 and we were a bit disappointed as we were 3-2 up in the closing stages.

"Knowing that we can score against them will give us confidence and hopefully we can come out on top this time."
