MORTON forward Gary Oliver admits he didn’t hit the goalscoring heights he would have liked last season — but he’s desperate to put that right this coming campaign.

Oliver netted eight goals in all competitions for Ton last season which, by his own admission was not good enough. 

Often played just behind the lone striker, however, the 21-year-old was not considered Morton’s main goal threat.

But even in his supporting role, Oliver was looking to bag plenty more.

He insists he’ll do everything in his power to reach his target this season — and hopes to almost double his tally from last term.

He told the Tele: “After my injury [against Queen of the South in February], I hadn’t really been on the scoresheet as often as I’d have liked. But it’s hard because I don’t get too many chances in games.

“I’ll maybe get one chance in a game whereas someone like Jason Cummings at Hibs can have six or seven chances to put the ball in the net. I’m lucky if I get one per game.

“So you need to take all this sort of thing into consideration as well. But like I’ve said, I will continue to work hard on it. 

“To be honest, as long as the team are winning I don’t care too much if I’m scoring or not. 

“But I’ll be wanting to hit maybe 10 or 15 goals next season, I’ll set these targets for next campaign and hopefully I’ll be able to meet them.”
