ICT v Morton

Recommended Posts

Really impressed with Lewis Toshney. First time I've seen him play and thought he looked really good. After that performance he must be looking like our first choice centre half. Let's hope he can stay fit and get a good run in the team.

Aye, Toshney did ok against the Hun Colts who were quick and smart thinking. 

Last night showed what we have lacked for a while - a cb who sees the danger and attacks the ball, reckon if we'd have hung onto either mccart or coll it wouldve been  a good partnership.

More valuable minutes for McGregor,  who struggled at first - you don't learn too much on the bench - but grew into the game with his awareness and touch getting up to speed with the big boys. 

A 3-2 win means good entertainment and value for money, what a difference Todorovs goal made.😏

Points for every team covering the past 6 games, are United relaxing cos they know they already have it won? Makes the draw we've had where we've conceded late goals all the more frustrating.

Morton have put up highlights on YouTube.

 

All five goals are defensive shockers. Morton's centre-backs don't seem to realize that the heading ban only applies to under-12s. Their keeper made some fine saves, particularly the double block from the White deflected shot then MacGregor on the rebound.

Both Morton's goals came from Rooney getting skinned by Cadden (?). For the first one the cross really shouldn't get through McHattie to the back post, Nesbitt is unmarked because Storey wasn't tracking back, and Ridgers makes a hash of the shot and lets it through his legs. For the second Tremarco thinks the ball is going out and clearly doesn't realize Tumilty has nipped in on his blindside - otherwise he would surely have made more of an effort to shield it. Everyone has gone to sleep as a result, so Carson doesn't expect the cutback and it ricochets off him to give Lyon a tap-in. 

Still, Morton have been in good form recently and are still in the playoff race. That's three points on the board on a night where everyone else was dropping points.

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!

Is this not where Fyffe , cameron harper etc come in?

Good to see this never give up attitude they seem to have at the moment, keeping the heads up and plugging away right to the end. This is what will put pressure on DU if we can keep chipping away. It may seem that we're too far back but we thought this back in 2004 until we started on that amazing run-in from March to the helicopter game against StJ - same again please Robbo 👍

Another 0-0 between Arbroath and Dunfermline tonight. This midweek has been good for us. 

Hopefully we can keep it going at Alloa on Saturday. We’ve only won three on the spin in the league twice this season so now is the time to match that and then go on a longer run to cement second. 

We seem to have a good team spirit so hopefully we can do it.
