Match Preview v Morton (Away)

We travel to Cappielow tomorrow for the third time this season. Our first visit in October was the first game of the season in the Betfred Cup and ended in a 2-2 draw courtesy of goals from Stephen Dobbie and Connor Shields. We headed back to Greenock in December, but succumbed to a 2-0 defeat in what was the last game that we failed to score in.

Since then the sides meet at Palmerston when goals from Ayo Obileye and Aidan Fitzpatrick gave Queens all three points, despite Kalvin Orsi pulling one back.

Our hosts had a new man in the dugout last Saturday as ex-Queens manager Gus MacPherson took charge of a 1-0 defeat at East End Park. MacPherson was in charge of Queens in the 2011/12 season when we finished at the foot of the table and getting relegated. Allan Johnston was a player for Queens that year before taking the final game of the season as manager, and of course overseeing the historic 2012/13 campaign.

There should be no new injury concerns heading into the game. Joe McKee could be involved after returning to training while Jack Leighfield returned to the fold last week. Joshua Rae’s emergency loan deals have ended as his parent club, Peterhead, are set to be back in action. Dan Pybus, Nortei Nortey and Isaiah Jones will all remain out while it remains to be seen whether Stephen Dobbie will be fit enough to play a part. Ayo Obileye and Rhys McCabe’s red cards were successfully appealed during the week so both players will be available. Allan Johnston will serve his one game ban after also being sent off against Alloa.

Morton could still be without Kyle Jacobs in the middle of the park, although Stephen McGinn was brought in on loan from Hibs last week, making his debut away to Dunfermline. Michael Ledger, who was at Queens last year, has been virtually ever-present I n Morton’s side in 2021.

The game will be streamed live on for a cost of £14.00
