Morton vs Accies Sat 27th April 2013

The penultimate match of the season takes Accies to Greenock for a league game against Morton. A few months ago this looked like it could have been a massive game for both sides. At the time Morton's title challenge was strong while Accies were perilously close to the relegation play-off battle. As it happens, it might now be viewed by some as a meaningless end of season game. However, Morton still have their pride to play for and Accies can still finish in 3rd place.

Last week saw the team's 5th victory in what has been a fantastic April for the fans, players & new management team. The big question is can they round off the month with yet another win on Saturday? The confidence levels are certainly high and the players all look relaxed and incredibly fresh. In addition our record against Morton recently has been excellent.

Morton on the other hand will surely find it difficult to get motivated for this one. The disappointment of losing the league is bound to have had an impact on their players - will it be a negative or positive impact?

Looking to the Accies team, it's hard to imagine that there will be many changes from last week's squad. Louis Longridge must be pushing strongly for a start after impressive perfomances as a substitute in the last 2 games. I also wonder if the manager might be tempted to give a couple of the younger players an opportunity?


  1. Looking forward to the game as I think it will be quite competitive. We are a bit of a bogey team for Morton. Better results against us and the league title might still be in the balance so i think their players will be trying to get one over on us. At the same time Accies will be trying for that 3rd place spot and Stevie May will want to add to his tally which makes him a hot summer signing for someone if its not to be St Johnstone. if I were Rangers I would have him signed on at least a 2 year deal as he is proven in Divisions 1 and 2!!!

  2. Really only one team in it. Rarely did Morton threaten and we looked comfortable throughout. Well done again to Stevie but it was a team effort. Apparently if he doesn't resign for Saint Johnstone they will be due money for developing him as a player so cant see him signing for another SPL team. If he doesn't go back to Saints the alternative would be a move down south. Interesting to see.
