FootyMAD's Greenock Morton match preview

Footymad preview
History of the Alloa Athletic v Greenock Morton fixture

Alloa Ath. prepare to entertain Greenock Morton at Recreation Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 16 of the 36 previous games, with the Wasps winning just 12.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Recreation Park was less than a year ago, in March 2005, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Scottish Division Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Alloa Athletic's home form is most definitely relegation standard, collecting just 1 solitary point from the last six. While Wasps have scored 6, a worringly large 20 have been leaked at the other end.

Morton's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occassions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The The 'Ton's have scored 6 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 7.

Alloa Ath. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 14 games have yielded only 10 points. Morton are just outside the promotion places, in 2nd, having taken 25 points from 13 games.
