Morton V Queen of South at Cappielow Park - Match Preview

Triple boost for Morton

Morton have been given a triple boost ahead of their clash at home to Queen of the South after Mark McLaughlin, Michal Habai and Fouad Bachirou were all passed fit to play.

The Greenock men continue to be without Thomas O'Ware (foot) and Joe McKee (ankle), though, with manager Allan Moore asking his side to ensure they stop causing harm to themselves on the pitch.

Moore said: "We have lost goals this season that would have been avoided if the players had not played themselves into trouble and did what they had been asked.

"Queen of the South have good strikers and if we don't defend properly they will punish us."

The Doonhamers, who miss Mark Durnan through suspension, head to Cappielow looking to bounce back from losing their hold of the Ramsdens Cup in midweek to Rangers.

Paul Burns is absent with a groin injury and Stephen McKenna is a doubt with a foot injury, however Chris Higgins is free to play as his dismissal on Tuesday will be served in next season's Ramsdens Cup.

Manager Jim McIntyre said: "We may have lost 3-0 but there were lots to be positive about especially when it was 11 v 11. We need a similar level of performance as Morton away is one of the toughest fixtures in the league."
