GARY Oliver says Morton have absolutely no need to fear a Dundee United revenge mission on Saturday - because they’ve already shown they can go toe-to-toe with the Tangerines and come out on top.
Ton sent United tumbling out of the Betfred League cup on Tuesday night, and Oliver sees no reason why they can’t reproduce their heroics as they head to Tannadice this weekend in the Ladbrokes Championship.
The striker knows the hosts will have heard his team’s dressing room celebrations after their midweek triumph and is well aware they will use it as extra motivation.
He told the Tele: “We know now that we can beat them.
“So there’s nothing we need to change, we just need to play our own game and I’m sure the result will go in our favour. If I was in the opposite dressing room on Tuesday, I would be wanting a bit of revenge, so I’m sure they’ll come out the traps flying on Saturday.  We’ll need to be prepared for that.”
Twenty-one-year-old Oliver says his side are still on cloud nine after reaching a League Cup semi-final for the first time in 37 years.
He revealed: “After the game, the boys were going off their head in the changing room.
“It was a brilliant result, and getting to the semis is a massive achievement. We’ve bumped out two Premiership teams and a massive club like Dundee United so we’ve done well in this cup.”
Oliver also praised the Ton fans for the backing they gave the team on Tuesday and says it made a big impact.
He said: “The fans got behind us as well so that helped a lot.
“It does a lot for our confidence, but we’ve got a wee bit of luck in this competition as well so hopefully that can continue.”
