Gratuitous tattie scones.
Morton visit Livingston. Livingston enter today's play in fifth place with 28 points. Morton are tenth with 10. The Championship is particularly tight this year -- except for Morton. The gap between 10th-place Morton and 8th-place Queen of the South is greater than the one between QoS and 1st-place Dundee.
Brad Gascoigne is out, having signed with Boston United. Ben Sampayo is in.
In the years since 1995 when Meadowbank Thistle became Livingston FC (The Plastic Franchise) Morton have won 18 league games, Livi 17, with 15 draws. Morton have scored 67 goals to Livingston's 65. (Via Fitfa Stats.) In 2001-02 Livingston finished third in the Premier League and earned a place in the UEFA Cup, while Morton finished last in the Second Division and were relegated. That year Morton won seven games. They have two victories so far this season.

It's the Fourth Round of the Scottish Junior Cup. There are sixteen matches, including Largs Thistle at Kilsyth Rangers. Kilsyth is halfway between Glasgow and Stirling. Kilsyth Rangers are nicknamed the Gers, not the Sith. That is my one Star Wars reference for this year. Thank you and goodnight.
