Last 5 Meetings

Morton manager Allan Moore is looking for his men to haul themselves off the bottom of the table whereas Alloa boss Paul Hartley wants his side to build on last Saturday’s 1-0 win over leaders Hamilton.

The Cappielow chief said: “We had done so well defensively to defeat Celtic and I was looking for the same again against Dundee last weekend. For 45 minutes we got that however after leading 1-0 at the interval we were 2-1 down 5 minutes into the second half as we had shut off.”

“We are better than being bottom of the table, The Celtic result showed that, but we need to defend properly especially against an Alloa side that are well organised and extremely hard working.”

Moore has again ruled out Thomas O’Ware and Joe McKee through injury and he could be down to the bare bones squad wise as Tomas Peciar, Fouad Bachirou and Kabba-Modou Cham are all struggling with knocks.

Wasps manager Paul Hartley said: “Beating Hamilton was a huge thing for our players as just 2 years ago they were in the Third Division and now they have beaten the leaders in the Championship. That will give them a lot of confidence and mean that they can go to Cappielow without any fear.”

Alloa miss the injured James Creaney with Eddie Ferns is still not ready to come back following the broken jaw injury he sustained last month.
