STEVIE Aitken believes Dumbarton showed their ‘never-say-die’ attitude on Saturday after holding onto a 1-0 win over Morton at the Cheaper Insurance Direct Stadium.

Lewis Vaughan’s strike was enough to separate the two teams at the weekend and former Ton star Aitken reckons the manner in which his side were able to see out the victory was especially pleasing.

He said: “I can certainly enjoy it now that we’ve got the three points, but there were periods in the game when I wasn’t enjoying it!

“But that’s what happens when you come up against a team that Morton have got, they’re going to put you under a lot of pressure. They did that, but the guys in our dressing room have a never-say-die attitude and they proved it in the last 15 minutes when we held out really well.

“It’s always been close games between the two and I think that’s credit to us because they’ve been terrific this year.

“Jim has been terrific this year, I like to see my old club doing well - apart from these games.

“We knew it was going to be tough, no game against Morton is ever easy but we dug it out. We showed some quality at times and the goal was quality.”
