MORTON striker Gary Oliver will be out of action for up to two months after suffering a broken collarbone.

The 23-year-old landed awkwardly when ex-Morton player Jamie Stevenson brought him down on the halfway line just before the hour mark during Saturday’s Scottish Cup third-round tie against Peterhead.

The forward was substituted and sent to hospital and an X-ray confirmed he had suffered a fractured clavicle, with Morton manager Jonatan Johansson last night confirming he will sidelined for between six and eight weeks.

Meanwhile, Johansson says his players need to be much more clinical in attack after their 1-1 draw with the Blue Toon.

The Morton boss has urged his side to improve after a disappointing display against the League Two side and seal their place in the next round of the competition.

He told the Tele: “It wasn’t a great game and it was made more difficult for us when we conceded that goal. 

“I asked for drama but not that type of drama, it was too stretched and we weren’t picking up second balls. 

“Our play wasn’t good enough and we didn’t take our chances and that’s what happened, and we’ve got a tough away game now.

“The quality in the final third wasn’t really there, we didn’t pass as well and that was probably our best chance with the header that could have won it. But that wasn’t to be and I couldn’t complain too much about the result.”
