MORTON goal hero Kudus Oyenuga hopes his winner against Falkirk will be enough to edge him back into the starting line-up for Jim Duffy’s men — with plenty of huge fixtures still to come.
Oyenuga came off the bench to net the only goal of the 1-0 win over the Bairns on Saturday and insists he was delighted to play his part.
He told the Tele: “I was just glad to get on the pitch and help the boys. We’ve been playing really well this season and it’s been great to contribute again.
“We have a really good squad and have players on the bench who can come on and do something. Everyone is chomping at the bit to play and it was good to get my chance.
“Hopefully I did well, took it and that can continue.”
The now 24-year-old, who celebrated the win on Saturday with a birthday cake, insists it’s his time to shine for Ton now after recovering from previous injuries to take his chance at the weekend.
He said: “To have done my hamstring twice, the gaffer has brought in other players since. Shanks [Lawrence Shankland] has come in and done well and I found myself out of the team.
“But it is a team sport at the end of the day, so we’ve got to keep going. I’m just glad to get my goal on Saturday and take my chance.”
