Kilmarnock Away

The draw for the 2nd round of the Co-operative Insurance cup has handed Morton another away tie - but this time it has been sweetened by the fact that it is against SPL side Kilmarnock.

Morton and Killie had a fierce rivalry through the 1980s and 1990s (and possibly going much further back, as I remember Joe Caven - a team mate of Allan McGraw's in the 1960s - telling a group of Ton fans on one of our Highland tours that his favourite ever result was beating Kilmarnock 5-1 as he didn't like them) but this has dissipated over the last decade or so due to the teams playing in different divisions for so long. However, the last meeting between the sides will be fresh in any Ton fan's memory as we beat the Rugby Park side 3-1 in the Scottish Cup two and a half years ago (pictured, above left: Chris Templeman volleys Morton into a 2-1 lead).
