Morton V Dunfermline at Cappielow Park - Match Preview

Morton out to bounce back

Morton will look to put the disappointment of losing to leaders Partick in midweek behind them by seeing off troubled Dunfermline.

But Peter Weatherson will be absent again with a broken hand.

Stephen Stirling continues to recover from a broken leg and Thomas O'Ware is a doubt with a hamstring problem.

Manager Allan Moore said: "We cannot change the Thistle result so we have to move on from it. We have four games to go and we want to get maximum points from them all.

"Dunfermline will be scrapping for everything after their points deduction but we still have plenty to play for. This has been a season of progress at Morton and we do not want it to peter out."

Dunfermline travel without Stephen Husband who is suspended.

Ankle injuries keep Andy Geggan and Ryan Wallace away from the action while Josh Falkingham is a doubt after suffering a dead leg in training.

The Pars now sit second bottom of the table after being hit by a 15-point deduction following their move into administration,

Manager Jim Jefferies said: "We are in a very tough situation and need to get points but we just need to get on with it. We have quite an inexperienced squad that make mistakes due to that inexperience but they do not lack effort so we will go to Morton looking for a win.

"Morton will be disappointed after losing to Partick Thistle but they will come out looking to make up for that against us."
