After two consecutive defeats Jim McIntyre and his team will be desperate to get their recovery back on track.  Morton are the visitors and although they won on their last trip to West Fife they have only won once since the beginning of December. That solitary win was against foot of the table Stirling at New Year but those who made the trip to Cappielow on Boxing Day will recall how hard they made it for Macca's men to win 1-0 that day.

Morton's win at East End Park in August came courtesy of a Peter Weatherson goal in 21 minutes.   The best performance came in February 1965 when two goals each from Jackie Sinclair and Alex Ferguson, and one each from John McLauchlin and Bert Paton set the record league win over Morton at East End Park.
