MORTON skipper Thomas O’Ware has told how Jim Duffy’s side plans to give the fans something to cheer about in Livingston tonight.

O’Ware reckons Ton owe the travelling supporters a performance after they slumped to a disappointing 3-1 defeat to Falkirk on Saturday.

Ton lost three goals inside the first 30 minutes at the Falkirk Stadium, giving them a mountain to climb.

But the Ton captain is convinced his side can make up for Saturday’s loss with a result and performance tonight at the Tony Macaroni Arena.

He told Tele Sport: “It’s never good coming away from home and seeing your team perform like that against Falkirk.

“All we can ask is that the fans get behind us on Tuesday night. 

“We let ourselves down on Saturday. It was just error after error and all over the park we didn’t create anything.

“We gave Falkirk it too easy and we didn’t press. We only have ourselves to blame.

“Saturday was disappointing, we let ourselves down from the first whistle, so the idea is to go out and try to make up for it on Tuesday.

“But the good thing about the game is that it’s a game straight away where we can try to put it right — and hopefully we will put it right.”

Tonight’s clash takes on extra significance after Ton’s promotion play-off rivals Queen of the South closed the gap between the clubs to three points after their 1-0 win over Dumbarton.

And centre-back O’Ware is determined to ensure Ton produce an improved performance in West Lothian.

He said: “It’s a massive game on Tuesday night and with Queen of the South winning, they are only three points behind with a game in hand.

“So hopefully we can give a better account of ourselves.”

Livi have won all three contests with Ton this season, their latest being a slender 1-0 league victory at Cappielow a fortnight ago.

But O’Ware is hoping that Ton can finally tame the Lions this evening.

He said: “Apart from the cup game, the two league games at Cappielow ended 1-0, 1-0.

“And obviously the recent game saw a wonder strike win it for them, so it’s been tight games.

“But hopefully this time we’ll be on the right end of a 1-0.”
Tonight’s fixture is the second of three league games for Morton in the space of seven days.

Ton continue their road trips on Saturday at East End Park to play Dunfermline.

O’Ware said: “The next couple of weeks defines our season.

“If we can get a right good result on Tuesday, it’ll give us plenty of confidence going into Saturday’s game with Dunfermline.

“Each game is going to be hard, so we’ll take it one at a time and try to get three points.”

Centre back Luca Gasparotto is back in training following a recent rib injury and he could be drafted back into the squad for tonight’s fixture, which kicks off at 7.45pm.
