TAM O’Ware reckons Morton have had a raw deal in the injury stakes this season.

Jim Duffy’s side has been hit with a series of injuries to players in all areas of the park.

And it’s resulted in an ever-growing list of players who manager Duffy must do without.

But defender O’Ware is praying that the injury jinx is coming to an end.

He said: “If you look at other teams in the league like St Mirren, their front six have been the same all year, whereas we’ve had changes at the back, changes in midfield and injuries up front.

“Now is seems Jai [Quitongo] and Thommo [Robert Thomson] are going to be out for a while.

“Every position throughout the team’s had its injuries, so hopefully the squad that’s in just now can stick together and see through the season to hopefully secure that play-off spot.”

Two of Morton’s promotion play-off rivals — Queen of the South and Dunfermline — play each other this weekend.

If they draw the match and Morton win up at Inverness, it’ll put Duffy’s side in a great position to snatch one of the play-off spots up for grabs.

But O’Ware insists that Ton won’t be looking for any favours from elsewhere and will concentrate only on the things they can control.

He said: “We try and focus on ourselves. Obviously if results go our way, then results go our way and we’ll find out after the games. But if we can go up to Inverness, stay in the game for as long as we can and maybe nick a goal, then hopefully we can get the three points.

“The most important thing between now and the end of the season is that we keep playing and keep sticking together.

“We have a great team ethic with a good bunch of boys, so hopefully we can keep that going over the next four or five away games.”
