SCOTT Tiffoney is hopeful his performance on Saturday against Dumbarton will be enough to keep him in the thoughts of boss Jim Duffy for Morton’s Ladbrokes Championship run-in.

Tiffoney looked sharp before being subbed in the second half of the 1-0 defeat at the Cheaper Insurance Direct Stadium, and the youngster hopes his efforts will be remembered by Ton management — and that he’ll play a part of Morton’s last six fixtures before the play-offs.

He told the Tele: “It was nice to be in the team from the start. It was my first Morton start for a while so it was nice to make it happen.

“I don’t really know how well I played, I’m not really that type of person. If someone has an opinion about how I played they can say it, but I’m not really like that.

“Hopefully it’s the case where I’m in the gaffer’s thoughts after Saturday but I honestly couldn’t tell you, it’s completely up to the gaffer.

"Hopefully I showed him what I can do in games and hopefully I can get some more regular starts in the upcoming games.”

Eighteen-year-old Tiffoney was one of the three Morton players to strike the woodwork against the Sons, and he admits he was gutted to see it cannon back off the post and not nestle in the top corner of the net.

He said: “I honestly thought my effort was a goal the whole way. I actually don’t know how it never went in. But that was the luck we had on the day. 

“There have been similar chances that have went in before and then Saturday it’s hit the post, so I was gutted about that.”
