JONATAN Johansson admits Morton’s fixture pile-up next month will be a difficult test for his whole squad.

The Cappielow outfit have only played two fixtures so far this month because of call-offs due to weather and international call-ups.

Because of the cancellations the Greenock side now have six games next month, with three evening kick-offs, and a period of four games within the space of two weeks which will put a strain on his team.

Johansson’s side are currently for their weekend clash at home to Partick Thistle — over two weeks since their last game against Ross County — with the midweek fixtures to follow.

But under the Finn, Morton can take comfort from the fact they have a good record in the evening kick-offs.

They’ve recorded four wins and a draw when games are played in the evenings, going unbeaten so far.

Johansson hopes they can continue that next month, but admits it will be tough on his squad during that period of matches.

He told the Tele: “It’s not ideal. You want to keep playing but you can’t do anything about the weather or internationals and it’s just a matter of getting on with it.

“We play games on three Tuesdays in a row and we’ve been enjoying the evening games and we’re looking forward to them.

“It’s going to be a test on the whole squad and we need to use this time to get everybody fit for those games and get ready for that period when we will need that whole squad again.”
