Fresher Morton can spring shock on rivals St Mirren

Leaders Saints vulnerable on the road

Morton manager Jim Duffy could be smiling again

Morton v St Mirren
BBC Alba, 3pm Tuesday

Morton can take the Renfrewshire Derby spoils with a shock win against Ladbrokes Championship leaders St Mirren.

Saints moved five points clear at the top of the table with a great second-half display on Friday against a Dundee United side who missed a first-half penalty.

Morton should be fresh after their game at Dumbarton was called off and they will fancy a crack at Jack Ross's team.

They have already battered Saints 4-1 at Cappielow this season and have slipped under the radar recently with some good displays.

St Mirren are vulnerable on the road and, after the high of Friday, Morton could bring them back to earth in Greenock.

Recommendation
Morton
1pt 15-8 Hills

Team news
Morton have a full squad available.

St Mirren are hoping top scorer Gavin Reilly recovers from illness.

Key stat
Three of St Mirren's four league defeats this season have come away from home.


Tuesday's other Scottish games

There's a full list of fixtures in the lower divisions and Ayr United should be able to get back on track at Stranraer.

After ten wins in a row, United have lost twice, including blowing a two-goal lead at home to Ladbrokes League One bottom dogs Forfar on Saturday.

But they've got too much firepower in the team to think that was anything other than a blip and odds of 5-6 at Stranraer would have been unheard of recently, especially with the Stair Park side losing four players this week, including top scorer Ryan Wallace.

Stenhousemuir should win against freefalling Stirling Albion at Ochilview.

Albion have completely lost their way after a great start to the season and haven't won in five games.

Stenny, with Ladbrokes League Two's top scorer Mark McGuigan in the side, can beat their local rivals.

Recommendations
Ayr United 
2pts 5-6 Hills
Stenhousemuir 
1pt 21-20 general
