Kelty Hearts vs Morton Lineups and Team News

Kelty Hearts

Kelty Hearts managed to stay in League One after rallying late in the season and narrowly avoiding the drop. The lack of investment in the squad is worrying but at least not many of the important players left the club this summer. Kelty’s squad remains very small though and there is only 1 goalkeeper and 4 typical defenders currently on the books.

Strikers Biabi and Daramola could be missing. Both have been seriously injured last spring and are yet to be fully reintegrated back into training.

Morton

Morton’s Championship campaign in 2022/23 was one of ups and downs but at least it kept the team out of any trouble. However, this summer so far had been one of chances. Already, 12 players left and 9 new joined the team.

Due to Morton’s desire to do well in the Championship, our understanding is that in the League Cup group stage, a bunch of youngsters from the Academy will be tested. However, they are more likely to be appearing off the bench with all the main players expected to start.
