Morton manager Anton McElhone has opened up on how frustrated his players were at dropping points against Dundee at Cappielow yesterday.

Morton led the game twice, but were pegged back twice as the game ended in a 2-2 draw. The Morton boss revealed that after the game in the dressing room, his players were angry with each other at the way that the team dropped points.

“Shows you the passion”

“We’re disappointed. We’ve got a changing room that’s bursting at each other, which shows you the passion. They are tearing themselves up in there” he said.

McElhone is pleased to see the reaction from the players though. He believes that it shows that the club’s players cares about the club.

“They care a lot. We all react differently. They are hurting in there, that should have been three points. But, we didn’t. We can’t moan and groan, we’ve got to take it on the chin and move on. It evens itself out over 27 games. It’s still a point” McElhone stated.

Disappointed in goals conceded

The Morton was disappointed in the goals that his team conceded, as he feels that they could have been prevented.

“We shouldn’t have been done with the first one (goal), it’s a simple mistake. The second goal, there’s a bit of confusion from us. I’ll take the responsibility on it, we’ve changed our markers, but we’ve still got to deal with it. But I’ll take the positives, rather than looking at the negatives. We still managed to pick up a point” McElhone concluded.

Morton are next in action next weekend, when they take on Ayr United, looking to end a run of nine games without a win.
