At 2-2 I was starting to have thoughts about our season fizzling out, but great night in the end. Keep it going ICT!

Fantastic result.  We're usually on the wrong end of injury time winners, so great to see us getting one tonight.  Good results elsewhere  too so altogether a good evening.  Well done lads, same again on Saturday please.

That's a great result for us tonight and gives us a little breathing space since all other games finished in draws  2 goals in 2 sub appearances for Todorov  I don't know why he does not get more game time

Magnificent result. Just like the Paterson years, a team that can take the knocks and come back 😎 Onwards to Alloa on Saturday

A great team effort tonight :clapping: kept pushing till the final whistle after loosing 2 sloppy goals.  We will have to do a lot more of that to stay in second place.

We deserved our win. Great effort throughout the team, but both goals we conceded were poor. 

Great delivery by Walsh for White’s opener, and Rooney’s header was sublimely placed before Toddy turned up to clinch it. 

Not our best performance, but a solid team effort got us through it. Just what we need on such a hectic run of games. 

Ridgers had a good early save. Toshney was steady. McHattie always looks calm, but possibly not his best game at centre half tonight. Rooney and Tremarco both got forward well. 

Carson and Trafford worked hard in midfield. Walsh and Storey both had the beating of the dull backs, one of whom should have got a second yellow for a challenge on Doran. MacGregor got valuable game time. White had a a good game. 

All the subs then contributed, particularly Toddy!

Just what we needed as at 2-2 I was a bit worried. 

Whilst we had beaten Morton heavily earlier in the season, they came tonight as the form team in the league: that was their first league defeat in 2020.

If we can win our two games in hand we cut the deficit to utd to 10 points. This is still doable. Reminds me of the 15 points and you ****** it up season  Dundee had.

Steady on old chap, we are still closer to the relegation playoff than we are to top!

Well done to the team : keep plugging away and secure that runner up spot. Utd are not that great but they're not going to collapse.

Really fancy our chances in the play offs.

Well a great 3 points and other results went our way...for a change!    Mind you we struggled for long periods tonight, Morton did what other teams have done and worked their asses off to close us down and stop us playing.

First 25 mins were fine then Morton woke up and put us under a fair bit of pressure although not creating much of note, Jordan had a great header tipped over the bar before fairly battering a header into the corner of the net to make it 1-0 ( not like him)

Into the second half and Morton had us on the ropes, We decided to help them score...    Up stepped Rooney ( well placed header ) to restore our lead, ICT then decided to help Morton score again by another calamity in defence by Tremarco.

However as the disgruntled fans started thinking about heading for the exits up stepped Toddy and left us not a bit disgruntled.

Bit of a Jeckll and Hyde performance again, Walsh man of the match...giz a break.

Big ask, but you are right - 2 games in hand plus DUtd to visit Inverness could in theory have it down to 7 points to make up over the remaining 8 fixtures. DUtd have hit a bit of a sticky patch but the likelyhood of a collapse of this nature is unlikely, but hopefully Robbo is using this as a motivation for the team to at least give it their best shot. We haven't really put enough games away early or been sparking this season with more often grinding out results which in itself will take a physical and mental toll on the players.

Toshney made a big difference. The team did play with a lot of energy but two defensive errors almost gifted Morton a win. We certainly were the better side but it's points that count. Carl is beginning to be quite inspirational - it was his deft flick on that enabled Toddy to score two in a row. MacGregor ran his socks off for 73 minutes. Morton were on a charge up the table so a vital win. However, the pack remains waiting to chase us down.  Alloa away is never easy.

Morton not able to defend crosses again I see? Pleasing.

Toshney has impressed since he joined us, and I don't think McHattie is doing that bad either...not sure what cover we have for the full backs though!

We didn't try many other methods than crosses,  most blocked near post or cleared by centre backs...the law of attrition means if we put enough in we will eventually score.

We were as poor, if not worse defending crosses than they were.

Pity we cant seem to get the second goal when we are on top and dominating games. Would have made for a more comfortable watch last night.

Standout for me last night was Tremarco, get the contract extension on the table now and let's not risk the usual end of season cluster.

Deserved win in the end for us but boy did we make it difficult. Morton created next to nothing and their goals came from our mistakes, Rooney for the first and Tremarco the second. Having said that, Tremarco was MoM by a country mile.

Morton were pretty poor and very cynical with fouls/pushing that the referee was incapable of dealing with.  There was one instance where we were on the attack and a Morton player went down in the penalty box. The ball was cleared but we regained possession and were just about to cross into the box again when the ref blew his BV whistle to stop play to get attention for the Morton player. He then proceeded to not let the Morton physio on. He then gave Morton the drop ball. My understanding is that the rules changed this season to deal with this and we should have had the drop ball. If I am correct, a ref who doesn't know the rules, surely not 🤔.
