RAITH Rovers boss John Hughes insists his side’s 2-0 win over Morton on Saturday is a giant step towards Championship survival — but warned his players there’s still a long way to go.

The ex-Falkirk and Hibs gaffer was pleased with his team’s performance, claiming that they were worthy of the victory. 

And Hughes reckons it’s important they can build on Saturday’s win, because with relegation comes dire consequences.

He said: “With four games to go, you have to realise the consequences if you’re not winning football matches. We’re thankful we won it and I think the performance was good enough to win it, or at least take something from the match.

“I’m really pleased for everyone connected with Raith Rovers. 

“When I say consequences, jobs and all that are on the line. I think since I’ve come in, that’s been a bit of a shadow over them in terms of going to express themselves, getting on the ball and playing.

“We’ve had to leave that a wee bit and sort of go about our business in a different manner. 

“But all credit to them, especially here at home. St Mirren, Dundee United, Hibs, Morton. 

“That today, without getting carried away, is a good win, a good three points.

“But we’ve still got a lot of work to do.”
