Bottom of the table Morton look set to include former Hibs and Scotland striker Gary O’Connor now that international clearance has come through from his last club, Tom Tomsk, in Russia. Dougie Imrie returns after a ban and manager Kenny Shiels has Jonathan Page and Tony Wallace looking for recalls after injury, however David O’Brien and Thomas O’Ware remain out.

Manager Kenny Shiels side: “We will have more threat about us by having Dougie and Garry available to play. It would be great if we could get ourselves ahead in the game as we are a side that lacks confidence.”

“Against Dumbarton last week we missed chances and the strikers’ heads went down. When we lost a goal the whole teams’ heads went down. If we could get ahead confidence would grow and make us a very dangerous side.”

Raith are slipping down the table after just one win in 5 games and they include new recruit from Hibs, Fraser Mullen.  The defender looks set to start as Stark’s Park skipper Jason Thomson is suspended.

Goalkeeper David McGurn and defender Paul Watson remain out through injury with striker Greig Spence a doubt due to an ongoing hamstring problem.

Manager Grant Murray said: “No matter where Morton are in the league going to their ground is always a very difficult game. Kenny Shiels is certainly changing things around un terms of trying to get them winning again.”

“Hopefully he will have to wait for another week before they do so. We want to bounce back after losing to Dundee at the start of the year.”
