MORTON’S Jack Iredale has revealed how some half-time tips from Jonatan Johansson and assistant Peter Houston led to his goal against Partick on Saturday.

The Australian was in scintillating form at the weekend, providing two assists for the Ton’s first two goals, before scoring the third himself.

The defender dashed to the back post to slide in and convert Michael Tidser’s cross, putting the ball past Jags goalkeeper Cammy Bell.

Iredale told the Tele: “Housty and the gaffer said there was a chance for me to get in behind and get a goal if I got my legs going, and to get to the back stick.

“I thought I’d probably get an earful if I didn’t go for it then.
“The ball skidded off the ground and took an extra little kick so I had to really stretch for it and thankfully it went in.”

The Jags headed into the game on a poor run of form, having lost their last five league fixtures.

But Iredale said ignored that as they sealed their third win in four to move up into the play-off spots.

He added: “We weren’t really looking at Thistle’s recent performances, we were looking at ours and building on the Queen of the South game and not letting past results happen again. 

“Our focus was definitely on ourselves on Saturday and it showed.”
