Recently appointed Morton manager Kenny Shiels begins his new job in the stands at Cappielow as he is serving a two match touchline ban incurred during his time in charge at Kilmarnock.

The injured Craig Reid, Jonathan Page and David O’Brien remain out for the Greenock side, however Reece Hands is available to start for the first time in three months and Kabba-Modou Cham is also included after a back problem.

Shiels said: “I am very excited to be starting at Morton and I get a sense of anticipation from across the town. It is a tough opening game as Falkirk are a good young side that have a fantastic operating model in terms of developing players.”

Falkirk, who slipped out of the top four last weekend when their game at Queen of the South was abandoned, miss only young midfielder Thomas Grant who has been absent from training this week after being hit by a virus.

Falkirk’s Technical Director Alex Smith said: “Kenny is an exciting character and it is good for the game that he is working again. However we cannot get caught up in the excitement at Cappielow in terms of his appointment as we have a job to do.”

“We are on a good run in the league and want that to continue.”
