Possibly the most important game of the season so far and we need to get our promotion campaign back on track with a win.

McKay should definitely start, he is a confidence player like many forwards and if he is not brimming with confidence after his hat trick Saturday he never will be.

I would also be inclined to give Lewis Jamieson a start alongside him with Shane and Manny on the bench to provide fresh forward impetus later in the game.

I thought McKay & Jamieson gave us better movement in the run up to Gardynes winner in the last home game.

Where is @CaleyD when you need him? :wink:

Wee plug for the last episode of The Wyness Shuffle which has a preview of the game against Morton with Dean MacKinnon who hosts the 'Just One Cornetto' Greenock Morton podcast (around the 54:23 mark).

There's a big swing towards Inverness in these fixtures. Only two defeats at home versus Morton out of sixteen encounters. One of those was as recent as last season though, when we went down to the only goal of the game at the Caledonian Stadium. Aiden Nesbitt was the scorer of the goal and that result put Inverness second bottom of the table in March.

Our last game was a rousing 4-2 Challenge Cup win at Borough Briggs where a Billy Mckay hat-trick saw us overcome a two goal deficit to go into the next round where we will play Raith Rovers at the Caledonian Stadium at the end of November. Lewis Jamieson scored the fourth goal to round off the comeback.

Arbroath scored a late goal to deny Morton all three points a couple of weeks ago in a Championship encounter. That would have been a decent result against team of the month Arbroath. Gary Oliver and Cameron Blues scored the goals for the Ton. However Michael McKenna's 87th minute penalty earned the Smokies a point. Last time out Morton edged past Montrose in the Challenge Cup on penalties (4-2) after a goalless draw.

Latest Team News

According to the Official Preview we still have a number of players carrying knocks. Probably David Carson and with Danny Devine and Cammy Harper being subbed early at Elgin last week then they might require resting for a bit longer, but Billy Dodds like to keep his injury situation close to his chest so we will have to wait until just after 2:00pm tomorrow to find out

Here's Roddy

Keep it simple today and get 3 points...😃

I don't much care whether we keep it simple or make it more complicated as long as, come ten to five, we finish with all three points and no fresh injuries.
