Morton return to Indodrill Stadium for another crack at the game abandoned January 16th because of snow. When the match was called off Alloa were leading 1 - 0, but this is soccer not baseball, so the game begins over again at 0 - 0. Morton must have been confident they would not play to a draw against Annan in the Scottish Cup Saturday, as this would have been the logical date for a cup replay. The month of February is extremely congested for Morton this year, with midweek games on the 2nd, 9th and 24th.
"What a nonsense argument. Two other replays are happening February 16th. You've shown that Morton have February 16th free. That's the logical date."
Steward: "You're both barred."
Morton have 19 goals in 21 league games. The two previous times they had fewer goals for than games played in the 21st century they were relegated. They scored 34 in 2000-01 and 32 in 2013-14.
So far this season Morton have six league wins and six cup wins. Has any club ever won more games in cup play than in league play? Yes. In 1999-00 Clydebank won one league game, two Challenge Cup games, and one Scottish Cup game.
