CHRIS Millar today stressed that Morton’s Championship fate is still in their own hands.

The Ton are one of five teams who can drop down to League One with four games to go.

Only four points between the sides in the bottom half of the table, with Morton having a day off because Inverness Caley Thistle are playing Hearts in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park this afternoon.

Ton’s relegation rivals are in action though, and they could lose ground ahead of their game against the Caley Jags on Tuesday.

However, Millar says there is no time to be feeling sorry for themselves, with Morton still in the favourable position of having their fate in their own hands.

He told the Tele: “When you get in that rut it’s hard to get out of it. You need big characters, you need people to stand up and be counted.

“We’ve got a young dressing room but as soon as you cross that white line you’ve got to be a man, you’ve got to go and take the game.

“We’ve got to work. We fight for every ball, you scrap, you fight, whatever you need to do and you make it a good place to be in as well.

“You can’t be feeling sorry for yourselves after Tuesday night [against Alloa Athletic].

“It hurts right now but it’s still in our own hands. We’re still ahead of the pack below us. It’s going to be a tough run-in and we’ve got to win games, it’s as simple as that.”
