Fourth placed Queen of the South have a fully fit and suspension free squad for the visit of doomed Morton after midfielder Stephen McKenna shrugged off a hip injury.

Palmerston manager Jim McIntyre said: “Our old habit of not scoring goals came back to hurt us against Dundee in midweek and we lost 1-0. I am looking for us to bounce back by getting goals and a win over Morton.”

“Things are tight in the hunt for a play-off so we need to keep winning to stay in charge of our season. Morton will not simply want their season to fade away so we will have to battle for anything that we get.”

The Greenock side who will be relegated if they lose and Cowdenbeath pick up a point have Rowan Vine suspended after his midweek dismissal in the 3-0 defeat from the Blue Brazil.

Darren Cole, David O’Brien, Ben Sampayo and Reece Hands are all out injured for the Greenock side with manager Kenny Shiels saying: “Things are looking bleak and whatever happens will happen but we will keep fighting relegation as long as we can.”

“We have to try and salvage something from our season in the last few games by playing football at a really high standard starting at Queen of the South. We still be going out and looking to win.”
