Match Preview: Greenock Morton (H)

By Declan Hughes

TEAM NEWS

Head Coach Stuart Taylor believes his men are still in a good place coming into this weekends home fixture versus Greenock Morton.

With two concerns for this upcoming fixture, the Accies boss hopes that his squad will be close to full strength for the match.

He said: “Scott Martin had to receive eight stitches in his foot after the Arbroath game but there is no tying Scotty down. He always wants to get involved and be a part of things so it will take something special to stop him from coming back.

“The only other issue is with Miko Virtanen, who is still feeling soreness in his Achilles, so we will need to see how he is feeling before the game.”

LAST TIME OUT 

It has been over four months since both sides came head-to-head in the SPFL Cinch Championship, where the game finished in a 1-1 draw at Cappielow.

FORM

Stuart Taylor’s men come into this tie, unbeaten in eight out of their last ten games. The men in red and white will be looking to build on their draw last time out against league leaders Arbroath.

MANAGER’S NOTES

Taylor has revealed that he is eagerly anticipating his return to the Accies dugout and hopes that by being back on the touch line, it will help drive his side on to victory. 

He said: “It’s been rubbish being stuck at home, but I’ve been delighted to get back to work. Getting back out on the pitch, working closer to the lads and continue our work in the right direction.

“We’ll treat Morton with the utmost respect. They have been on great form since the appointment of Dougie, but as always, we need to take care of ourselves and implement our own game-plan on them.”
