CHRIS Millar hopes Morton’s new January recruits can help them become a more attacking outfit.

The Greenock side added four outfield players, with three of them attacking options.

Greg Kiltie and Andrew Dallas have both started in recent weeks, while Bournemouth loanee Keelan O’Connell was also on the bench for Saturday’s game against Dundee United.

With Ross MacLean, Scott Tiffoney, Connor Bell and Ben Armour leaving last month, and Denny Johnstone being out injured for the majority of the season, it has left the Ton with limited options recently.

But with the latest new additions, Millar, who has filled in as a left midfielder in recent weeks, feels they will add a new dimension to Morton’s attack and to improve the team.

He told the Tele: “One thing we need to do is to be a bit more expansive. Hopefully with the players the manager has brought in, with two wingers and a forward, we’ll try and be on the front foot a bit more, create more chances and play a bit more attacking football.

“Losing Tiff and Ross MacLean, we lost our two players with natural pace and the gaffer has looked to bring a few more in with Greg and Keelan.

“It obviously affects how we shape up and can play, and with Andy Dallas he’s added pace to the team, which I felt we lacked in the forward areas recently.

“I played left mid and I wouldn’t say I’m a flying winger, but I’m happy to do a job there when I’m asked.

“Going forward and being more attack-minded you want someone out there who has natural pace and can get out there and do that.”
