Stranraer visit Cappielow. With Stranraer in first place and Morton second, this is the League One match of the day. A Morton win will bring the Ton within a point of first place; a Stranraer win will leave Morton seven points adrift. Each has taken a win off the other so far this season. Stranraer are having an extremely solid season, alternating wins and draws, and at this point have to be favourites for promotion.
[Morton win 2 - 0. Goals by McManus and Russell. Morton are one point out.]
