Spartans fancy chances at Morton in Petrofac Training Cup

Have your say

Spartans travel to SPFL League One outfit Greenock Morton tomorrow in what will prove a real test in their Petrofac Training Cup first-round clash.

But the Ainslie Park outfit, last season’s Lowland League champions, will fancy their chances of causing an upset at Cappielow against their senior league opponents.

Dougie Samuel’s men faced a similar proposition this time last year when they were turned over by Queen of the South 4-0 at the same stage of the competition, but with the Spartans head coach having recruited wisely during the off-season, the Capital club will travel with some degree of confidence they can progress to the second round.

Spartans have performed admirably in their five pre-season fixtures, defeating both Falkirk and Highland League side Inverurie Locos with both midfielder Kevin Motion and striker Willie Bremner finding the net twice.
