MORTON frontman Gary Oliver is warning his team to be wary of a Dumbarton backlash tonight.

Jim Duffy’s side dumped the Sons out of the Scottish Cup fifth round just 10 days ago to earn a dream last-eight tie with Celtic.

And Oliver, who earned Ton a share of the points when he scored the equaliser during Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Queen of the South, reckons Stevie Aitken’s side will be desperate to avenge that previous scoreline.

He said: “We have Dumbarton tonight, which is another hard game, but we need to go there and get another result and try to push ourselves up the table.

“They’ll be trying to get a wee bit of revenge on us but if we can play the way we did the last time against them, then there should not be any worries.”

Oliver bagged his fifth goal of the campaign at the weekend and reckons Ton showed great character to come away from Palmerston with a precious point.

He told Tele Sport: “It was a difficult game. We always knew it was going to be that way but, to be honest, we didn’t play anywhere near our best. But we’re grateful for the point and it keeps them [Queen of the South] away from us as well.

“The first half we were poor and that’s probably as poor as we’ve been this season. The gaffer wasn’t happy with us at all.

“Second half we played a wee bit better and for 20 minutes we had a wee spell and we did quite well and created a few chances. Thankfully I scored the goal to get us back into it, so we’ll take that.”

He added: “Any point you can pick up at this stage of the season is different class, basically you need to rack them up.”
