Injury Crisis At Cappielow

Team news in today's papers suggest that Morton's injury situation is developing into something of a crisis.

David MacGregor, Kieran McAnespie (pictured) and Kevin Finlayson are added to an injury list that includes Scott McLaughlin.

Bobby Linn has also missed most of our pre-season matches and the first two competitive encounters against Clyde and Dundee. There is no mention of him being unfit for Saturday so he may feature. He will certainly lack match sharpness though.

Jim McInally isn't downbeat about the injuries - well publicly at least. He told the Evening Times' Bert Mitchell : "We have options to cover for these injuries. Obviously two games into the season you don't want to be without four starting players, but Jay Shields and Dean Keenan will come into the equation and I am confident we can cope."

Dunfermline at East End Park isn't the type of fixture you want to go into with an already small squad that's decimated by injury.
