JIM Duffy is convinced the Morton fans will see the best of Jai Quitongo once the talented youngster is up to full speed.

Duffy was delighted with the 20-year-old after he marked his return from injury with the winning goal at East End Park on Saturday.

But Duffy reckons Quitongo, who came on during the second 45 at East End Park, needs more regular outings in order to show the fans his real potential.

Quitongo missed six months of last season due to cruciate ligament damage and he’s missed a few games this season too after a series of knocks and niggles.

But it’s hoped the striker can rediscover the type of form that has made him a real crowd pleaser.

Duffy said: “You could see Jai was struggling a little bit with his fitness because he was having to work back and get up the pitch again.

“He’s strong, he’s quick but he’s had a stop-start season with niggly injuries. He’s an explosive player and he needs games but because he’s had that type of season, it’s had a general impact on his fitness.

“He just turned 20 about six weeks ago but there’s a lot of potential there.”

Duffy made no less than four changes to his starting 11 on Saturday and his gameplan worked.

He said: “I thought Gary Oliver was outstanding up front with young Scott Tiffoney, who’s a teenager as well.

“We changed it round a little bit and thankfully it worked out for us.”
