Morton make their second trip to Excelsior Stadium in Airdrie today, hoping to extend their undefeated road record and get some more space between themselves and Partick Thistle. The Ton are the only British club without an away loss in league play. (Cup competition is another story.) Airdrie United are in last place. This is exactly the sort of game Morton must win, and that is exactly what everybody said before the Dumbarton game.
After last weekend's expulsion from the Scottish Cup, Morton have only the division title to strive for. A win today will give the Ton 48 points, more than in any other season in this current run of First Division membership. The last time Morton were this good in the First Division was 1995-96.
Raith v Partick is postponed, so Morton have an opportunity to go eight points clear.
I have paid no attention to junior football at all this season. How are things going in the Scottish Junior Cup? The Fifth Round goes next weekend, so right now they're trying to get a lot of weather-delayed Fourth Round matches played, not to mention the replays. Largs Thistle and Port Glasgow went out in the Second Round. Greenock Juniors went out in the Third Round, beaten by Shotts Bon Accord. Auchinleck Talbot are through to the Fifth Round.
[Morton win 0 - 4. Goals by O'Brien, McMenamin, MacDonald and Wilkie.]
