MORTON manager Jonatan Johansson says his side have to look at their recent break as a ‘positive’ after seeing a number of their fixtures postponed.

The Ton have been idle since March 9.

Because of bad weather and international call-ups the Greenock outfit have not had any games in that period, but now have a pile-up with four coming in the space of two weeks.

A number of Johansson’s squad had picked up minor injuries after the game against Ross County earlier, and with extra time for some of them to recuperate the enforced break is being viewed as a plus for his side.

They begin their hectic schedule with a home clash against Partick Thistle today.

Johansson told the Tele: “It’s weird to have this long off at this time of the season. 

“It’s usually the other way around, it’s good and bad.

“You can always turn it into a positive and we’ve had time to give some of the players who have played a lot and have niggles a bit more time to rest.

“Some of our injured players are now a couple of weeks closer to fitness and it’s important we keep the match fitness up.

“We know that with a break like this there is going to be a pile-up, and that will happen next month when we’ve got six games in a month.”
