MORTON boss Jim Duffy has revealed that he will ring the changes to his squad as they prepare to negotiate a series of tricky league matches over the next 10 days.

Duffy has picked the same starting 11 in the last four games.
And his faith has been repaid with four consecutive victories against Dunfermline in the Scottish Cup, Dundee United in the league, a second victory over the Pars in the league, followed by Saturday’s Scottish Cup fifth-round victory over Dumbarton.

However, with four tough league fixtures to negotiate through the next week and a half, Duffy wants to make sure his players don’t get jaded.

He said: “I haven’t changed it in the last few weeks but I probably will change it, simply because of the amount of games we’ve got coming up.

“It would be unfair and unrealistic to ask the players to perform at the same level every single game.

“We don’t have too much room for manoeuvre but we do have a little bit, so we’ll see what the best way forward is.

“All you can do is tick each game off the calendar and that’s what we’ll do.

“We’ll start off with Queen of the South. We’ll go there and give it everything we’ve got to try to get a result and then we’ll reassess after the game.”

He added: “It’s tough enough against a Queen of the South side who, on their day, are very good and have a squad filled with quality — and being on the artificial surface is always difficult.

“We’ll go down there and try to show the same type of determination that we’ve had of late and if we do that then we’ll be in with a shout.”
