GARY Oliver reckons his last-gasp winner against Dunfermline Athletic on Saturday has given him an appetite to go on a goalscoring spree for Jim Duffy’s men.

Forward Oliver tucked home Bob McHugh’s pass in the 90th minute to hand Morton their third win in succession and propel them back into promotion play-off contention.

Now Oliver, 22, plans to take his season’s goals tally into double figures before the campaign is through.

He told Tele Sport: “I have always tried to do better than the season before. 

“I got nine last season, so I’ll try to get into double figures. Hopefully I can get that.”

“Hopefully in a few more games, I’ll get a few more goals.”

The 22-year-old was also a goal maker at the weekend, for it was his cushioned pass to Michael Tidser which led to Ton’s 37th-minute equaliser.

Dunfermline had opened the scoring midway through the first half through new signing Tom Beadling but Tidser’s effort and Oliver’s late strike meant the points stayed at Cappielow.

Oliver reflected on his part in the equaliser and said: “Big Luca’s nodded it across goal and I’ve tried to take up a position in the box to try to score but it went over my head, so I tried to cushion a nice header back to Michael Tidser and it was a lovely strike into the bottom corner.”

And for the 90th-minute winner, Oliver strongly suspected that McHugh would produce the killer pass which would lead to Dunfermline’s downfall.

He said: “To be fair, I thought he was going to run through and dink it over when the goalie came out. But he’s taken it past him and I thought ‘surely he’s going to cut it back’.

“But I know Bob, he’s a great guy and I was pretty sure he was going to cut it back.”

Oliver admitted that Ton were far from their best on Saturday but will nevertheless take the win - and the three points.

He said: “The last two weeks have been top class but the first half [on Saturday] I thought was really poor. And in the second half it wasn’t much better. But we hung in there, got a break and we took it.

“You need some luck. Three months ago we probably would have been beaten, so it’s good to have things go our way just now.

“It shows the character of the team, you stick in there and you’ll get a chance. It was about staying in the game and waiting for a chance — and we took it.”

The win puts Morton back into the top four and Oliver is determined that they stay there.

He said: “We were in seventh place before the game, that’s how crazy this league is.

“Now we’re in the play-off position. We just need to try to keep it going. Hopefully we can produce some performances and more results as well.

“To be fair I don’t think I was at my best [on Saturday] but if I score the winner every week I won’t need to be at my best!”
