BOB McHugh believes Morton will take care of business at the second time of asking tonight against Peterhead in their Scottish Cup replay.

The two sides played out a 1-1 draw at Cappielow on Saturday, which sees the pair lock horns again at Balmoor for a place in the next round against East Fife.

Scott Brown scored against the run of play on 27 minutes to put the visitors in front, after Ryan Dow had supplied the ball for the midfielder.

But McHugh headed Morton back on level terms five minutes before the break, and the Ton looked to kick on in the second half.

But that clear-cut chance didn’t come until the dying minutes of the game.

The striker had the chance to score the winner, but headed Robert Thomson’s cross inches wide.

The forward told the Tele: “The chance at the end was a hard one.

“The ball came over and I saw it late and I just tried to hit the target, but unfortunately it didn’t hit the back of the net.

“We probably didn’t deserve it over the 90 minutes.

“I was pleased with my goal. It was a great ball in from Jack Iredale and I managed to make a good connection with my head.

“But overall we didn’t have enough quality from middle to front on Saturday.”

The striker now has eight goals for the season, scoring five in his last seven outings since finding the net against Falkirk.

The goal against the Blue Toon meant the 27-year-old has now netted as many goals as he did in the whole of last season, doing it in under half the total amount of appearances.

But he’s hoping not to stay on that tally for long, as he targets more goals for the Ton tomorrow night.

The forward fully expects Morton to flex their muscles and show their advantage over part-time side Peterhead, with the quick turnaround likely to favour the full-time team.

McHugh added: “That’s eight for the season now and that was my tally last season.

“I had a stop-start time last season with injuries, so hopefully there are more goals to come. A couple tomorrow night would be great.

“We are all frustrated but we can’t really argue with the result. We expected better of ourselves.

“We didn’t perform to the levels we are capable of so we are disappointed, but we need to react quickly with the replay tomorrow night.

“We’re the full-time team so we expect to progress, but we know it will be tough as they are a physical side and we’re not the biggest.

“We just need to be brave on the ball.”
