MORTON goalkeeper Derek Gaston is looking forward to an ‘entertaining’ and tightly fought game against Dundee United today at Cappielow.

Five of the last 10 games between the two sides have resulted in draws, with only one scoreless match during that period.

The pair lock horns for the second time this season, after Morton were unfortunate to leave Dundee with only a point in their last game with the Tangerines.

Fraser Fyvie’s injury-time leveller cancelled out Michael Tidser’s penalty at Tannadice in Jonatan Johansson’s Ton dugout debut.

And Gaston expects another cracker between the two teams in Greenock this afternoon.

He told the Tele: “We’ve had some good games with Dundee United over the last few years.

“We were winning going into the last minute of the match and they got a late goal, it was the manager’s first game and it was quite deflating as we’d defended quite well in that fixture.

“Last season we put in a really good performance against them and beat them 3-0, then they beat us twice in the play-offs the season before.

“Over the last few years there’s not been too much between us and Dundee United and they’ve been pretty entertaining, so it should be the same today.”

Since the last two sides met, Robbie Neilson was brought in to replace ex-manager Csaba Laszlo back in October.

They had been on a good run of form, picking up five wins in six, until their winning streak came to an end at the hands of Ayr United last Friday, losing 5-0 at home.

Morton also lost heavily last weekend to Dunfermline Athletic, going down 3-0 at East End Park, and have also lost other games this season by big margins to Ross County and Ayr United.

The 31-year-old keeper believes it’s been happening to a lot of teams because of the quality of forwards sides have this season in the Championship.

He added: “Clubs have got a lot of firepower in their teams this season, a lot of teams are handing out a beating to other sides, ourselves as well, we put five past Partick Thistle.

“Most of the teams are pretty even in the league and there will be the odd result where people don’t see it coming, like that one for Ayr United against Dundee United last week.

“They’ll be going into the game with the same attitude as we will, trying to eradicate last weekend’s result.

“After you get a bad result it’s really important to get a good one to forget about it and put in a good performance.”

After the Ton’s big losses this year, they have bounced back immediately afterwards with strong performances.

The shotstopper is hoping his side can shake off the disappointment of last week’s defeat quickly.

He added: “We bounced back from Ayr United and we went to Inverness and got a good draw, and then after Ross County we followed it up with a good win against Queen of the South.

“Hopefully we’re able to get ourselves back on the right track again.”
