MORTON’S Chris Millar says scoring goals has to be a team effort.

Some teams in the Championship this season, such as Queen of the South and Ayr United, have relied heavily on their strikers Stephen Dobbie and Lawrence Shankland to find the net.

But with Gregor Buchanan notching his first goal of the campaign against Dundee United at the weekend, the Ton have now had 15 different goalscorers this season in all competitions.

Morton striker Bob McHugh sits at the top of the scoring charts with eight goals for the Ton so far.

Millar, who has found the net three times this season, says the entire team must continue to back up the strikers.

He told the Tele: “I’ve chipped in with some, as have Bob McHugh and Michael Tidser, boys are chipping in with goals all over the park and that can only help us.

“It shouldn’t just be down to the strikers and we’ve got a licence to go forward and score goals so I’m really happy we’re doing that.”

After the Ton’s draw against promotion chasers Dundee United, Millar hopes his side have turned a corner, and can go on a good run.

He added: “That’s the big thing now, we keep going from one result good and one result not so good.

“It’s up to us to take on board what the manager said and to put it into practice and get the consistency now.”
