Morton look set to give centre back Jonathan Page his first start of the season as manager Allan Moore looks to eradicate the defensive problems that saw his men go down 3-1 to Dumbarton.

Moore said: “Jonathan did well when he came on and he has in my thoughts for this game. We lost goals that we should not have lost and I will be picking a side that will hopefully stop that happening.”

“I am glad that we have this game so quickly after Saturday’s one as we can get going again quickly. We made a slow start last season but we had strong characters that led us out of it and we need characters to come through and do the same this season.”

Moore is not looking to get the Dumbarton game out of his players’ minds as he explained: “I don’t want them to forget about it. They will be sitting through the footage of the game and learning from it.”

David O’Brien is out after he suffered a recurrence of a thigh injury against the Sons and he joins Joe McKee in missing out.

Montrose head to Cappielow with confidence after hitting back late on to grab a home draw with Berwick Rangers on Saturday.

It was not so much getting the point but the performance that boosted the Links Park men with manager Stuart Garden saying: “It may have looked like we were grateful for a point as we scored late on but the way we were playing it was the least that we deserved. We can go to Cappielow knowing that if we play as we well as did for the majority of the game on Saturday then we will make Morton work really hard to get through.”

“They are favourites and all I can ask our boys to do is play to that high standard again.”

The Gable Endies head south without weekend goalscorer Paul Watson, who is suspended, and goalkeeper Sandy Wood who has a hip problem.
