Jamie Stevenson won a league title with Morton – but he’s hoping to dump them out of the Scottish Cup with Peterhead.
The Blue Toon travel to Cappielow tomorrow in the third round of the tournament with Stevenson hoping to cause an upset and eliminate his old team.
The winger, who can also play at full-back, played for the Greenock outfit from 2006 until 2009, helping them win the second division in 2007 under current Balmoor boss Jim McInally.
Stevenson is looking forward to going back to Cappielow and said: “Jim used to be the manager at the club and I played there for three seasons and it’s always good to go back.
“I have good memories of Morton. We won what was the second division to go up to the Championship.
“Then we stayed up and then I got sent out on loan.
“It was a good club to play for with good fans. There’s a good pitch and an old-school stadium. We’ll enjoy going there to play and, hopefully, we can create chances, keep it tight at the back and come out on top.”
Stevenson knows the Blue Toon will be underdogs tomorrow.
But with attackers such as Rory McAllister, Russell McLean, Derek Lyle, Willie Gibson and Ryan Dow in their side, he reckons they have a chance of causing an upset.
Stevenson added: “We want to give a good account of ourselves and with Rory McAllister and the players in our team we have a chance of scoring goals.
“We will always create chances and you get some days where Rory is on fire and he can score from anywhere.
“We’ve got Willie Gibson, who can score goals, Russell McLean is always a threat and Derek Lyle has hit a purple patch recently.
“They’re the full-time team and will be expected to win.
“We have boys who have played at a better level than we’re currently at, so that can help us as well.
“We’ll have a go because it’s the Scottish Cup and you never know what could happen.”
Centre-back Mick Dunlop is back from suspension and left-back Paddy Boyle has returned from injury – and Stevenson believes their experience in defence could be important.
He said: “Mick Dunlop coming back will help with experience. In our last game, we had Willie Gibson at left-back.
“But if Paddy Boyle is back as well that will give us more of a solid back four.”
Defender Jason Brown and influential midfielder Simon Ferry are injury doubts.
