BOB McHugh admits Morton’s last result has been playing on his mind during the international break — and he’s desperate to put it right today with a win over table-topping Dunfermline at Cappielow.

Ton fell to a 1-0 defeat to Livingston in their last league outing and have had a full fortnight to stew over the poor result and lacklustre performance. 

But 26-year-old McHugh insists the whole team is raring to go this afternoon against the Pars to get back on track.

He told the Tele: “The first thing you think about after you have a poor result the previous game is that you want to do everything you can to put it right.

“The Livingston game has been in the back of our minds, unfortunately, for a couple of weeks now. 

“We’re all desperate to get back out onto the park and put that one right by producing a better performance and coming out with the three points. 

“I know a few of the players over at Dunfermline, so I know the quality they have there. They’ve got a big squad as well and it’s something that we’ll be looking to counter today. We want to put our strengths across and hopefully nullify the threats that Dunfermline might pose.

"We’re well aware that it’s going to be a really hard game against the top of the league team, but it’s one we’re really looking forward to.”

McHugh has been delighted with the home support since he swapped the dark blue of Falkirk for the blue and white of the Ton and he wants to repay the faith shown in him and his team-mates with a win this afternoon.

He hopes the Cappielow crowd come out to see his side get back to winning ways against the league leaders.

He said: “We want a big crowd today to come and support us and help us along with the three points. If we can get a run together and get that wee bit of momentum, it will be good for the crowd, who have been excellent since I got here. 

“We want to look to keep that going. We need to get a run together on the park to give them something to cheer about.”
