Queen’s Park v Greenock Morton – Robin’s View

Queen’s Park meet Greenock Morton on Saturday at Hampden with the game being the first league meeting between the sides at The National Stadium since March 2003. The clubs of course met last season in the Championship with Morton winning once and drawing once at Ochilview and also winning both games at Cappielow.

The last game at Hampden between the clubs was a more positive affair for the Spiders with goals from Adam Cummins and David Galt earning a 2-0 Challenge Cup win back in September 2016.

Robin Veldman spoke to QPTV this morning at Lochinch about Saturday’s game. The Head Coach covered:

  • Morton Preparations
  • Duels
  • Dundee United reflections
  • Keeping Positive
  • Desire
  • Stuart McKinstry signing
