MORTON manager Jonatan Johansson admits their form in 2019 simply ‘hasn’t been good enough’.

The Ton were beaten 2-1 by Alloa Athletic on Tuesday night, as they slipped further into a relegation scrap.

Morton started off the year by beating table-toppers Ross County to move into the play-off positions, and were 13 points off the bottom.

But after picking up just one victory in their last 13 games since that win over the Staggies at the beginning of January, the Cappielow outfit have slumped and are now one of five teams who could be relegated with just four points separating them.

Morton are still the bookies’ favourites to survive the drop out of those five sides, but with no win in their last six games their time could be running out.

However, the manager backed himself and his players to turn it around in the coming weeks, with four games left to avoid finishing in the bottom two places.

He told the Tele: “We definitely have the spirit and desire [to stay up].

“It’s about getting together and getting the character out of the team.

“Since the New Year it hasn’t been good enough.

“We have been saying that for a few weeks now, that we can get ourselves away from the bottom.

“The players need to realise it’s serious business now and we need to get it right.”
