If you follow the chat on greenockmorton.org long enough you'll encounter the placename Scapa Flow being used as a nickname for the Cappielow. Scapa Flow is a large harbour in the midst of the Orkney Islands, and is most famous as the anchorage where the Germans scuttled their fleet at the end of World War One. Like Cappielow it's windswept and cold, and great enterprises have run aground there. Like the Clyde shipbuilding industry. See here for a map of the German Empire's sunken High Seas Fleet.
Raith Rovers visit Cappielow today.
Morton have been freakishly lucky with the weather this season. To date they have not had a weather-related postponement at Cappielow. Today snow has knocked out four Third Division matches, two in the Second Division and one in the SPL, not to mention the SPL games delayed for conflicting with the League Cup.
Striker Archie Campbell has been out of the line-up for several weeks with an injury, so Morton have borrowed Colin McMenamin from Ross County.
[Morton win 1 - 0! Goal by Tidser. Morton remain five points clear. Dumbarton win and move into 8th place.]
This weekend it's the semifinals of the Scottish League Cup. Today Inverness Caledonian Thistle play Hearts at Easter Road. [Hearts win on kicks.] Tomorrow St. Mirren and Celtic meet at Hampden. [St Mirren win 3 - 2!]
