History of the Greenock Morton v Ross County fixture

Morton prepare to entertain Ross County at Cappielow Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, beating their opponents 1 times from 7 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Cappielow Park was earlier this season, when they played out a goalless draw in a Scottish Division One match.
