Recent respective form guides

Greenock Morton's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While The 'Ton have scored 8, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Queen o.t.S.'s away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. The games have constituted a decent return of 10 goals for the The Doonhamers, and 7 goals against.

Morton see themselves just below half way in the Irn Bru Scottish Division One, showing a record of 24 points from their 21 games played so far, Queen o.t.S.'s 26 points from 21 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 5th position.
