Morton look for home win number two of the season and Raith Rovers look for away win number two when the sides meet at Cappielow

The Greenock men miss the injured Thomas O’Ware, Joe McKee and David O’Brien with skipper Mark McLaughlin struggling with a groin problem.

Manager Allan Moore said: “We are determined that teams do not fancy coming to our place and getting points. Winning games here is the best way to build that reputation.”

“We were disappointing at Dumbarton last Saturday however we got a victory, four goals and a clean sheet against Montrose in the Scottish League Cup on Tuesday. That lifted everyone and we are looking forward to Raith coming here.”

Raith will include Dougie Hill in their plans after appealing the red card he received in midweek against Hearts in the Scottish League Cup, however Greig Spence looks set to miss out again due to a thigh strain.

Stark’s Park boss Grant Murray said: “I was really pleased with the strong test that we gave Hearts. To lose on penalties was disappointing but the players should be pleased with the work they put in.”

“I always enjoy going to Cappielow as it is a traditional football ground and one of the best pitches in the country. Hopefully that will allow us to play some good football and get the 3 points.”
