Ray McKinnon takes his side to Palmerston Park to face Queen of the South on Saturday afternoon in the Ladbrokes Championship.
MANAGER’S PRE-MATCH THOUGHTS
On Greenock Morton…
“It was a stronger performance, I didn’t think there was anything between the teams and we had chances in the first half. It’s no coincidence that Prince Buaben was playing in that half. We were obviously disappointed to go down to ten men and give ourselves a mountain to climb, but overall there is positives to take – we probably deserved more out of the game.”
“We have been making far too many mistakes that are costing us, but we need to work hard to eradicate that and hopefully take our chances when they come.”
On the upcoming fixtures…
“We need to really stick together as a club. All the players, the fans, the staff, we have got to try and ride this out and do the best we can until January until we can enhance the squad. I think anybody can beat anyone in this league. Ross County look really strong, but everybody else look like they can take points off each other, we need to start doing that.”
On Prince Buaben…
“Prince did really well in the first half last week, he’s got to a level of fitness, but he’s not quite where we want him to be yet. He showed so much composure on the ball, but because he’s trained so hard he tweaked his groin and we couldn’t take any chances in the second half. I am hoping that he will be fit for Saturday, but it will be an ongoing steady process for him to get to full speed.”
On Queen of the South…
“It’ll be a really tough game, I wasn’t here when we last played Queens and they beat us 3-0 but I have watched the footage and we know how dangerous they can be. We need to make sure we are well organised and aware of their threats and make sure we are ready to combat them.”
