ROBBY McCrorie believes Morton produced a ‘complete’ performance to claim victory in their vital relegation battle against Falkirk.

The stakes were high at the Falkirk Stadium as both sides fought to avoid relegation from the Championship.

But it was the Ton who took the game by the scruff of the neck, scoring a double early on in the second half to the delight of the travelling support.

The result moved the Cappielow outfit up to sixth place, while Falkirk dropped to the bottom of the table with just two games to go. 

The goalkeeper, on loan from Rangers for the second half of the season, said it was a perfect performance from his side, after they came out of the high-pressure environment with a packed crowd with the three crucial points.

McCrorie told the Tele: “It was a hectic game. Once we got that goal that settled us down and the second goal killed off the game, we saw it out quite well I felt and it was well deserved.

“The first half we had a few chances up their side, they had a few dangerous spells which didn’t really come to 
anything. We still needed to be switched on.

“To a man, defensively as a team we did really well and we got the two goals. It was just the perfect day, two goals, clean sheet - you can’t ask for much more.”

The Ton were put under some pressure in a brief 10-minute spell by the Bairns in the second half after they went 2-0 ahead, as former boss Ray McKinnon tried to salvage something from the game.

But McCrorie made some fantastic saves to keep a clean sheet, denying Falkirk on a number of occasions with some quick reactions.

The shotstopper insists it was vital they didn’t allow the hosts to have any opportunity to get back in the game, and they eventually were able to see it out under little pressure.

He added: “It was important for us. If they got a goal back then it would have been a nervy ending to the game, they would have their tails up and they could put us under a bit of pressure to get an equaliser.”

Last week’s frustrating 2-2 draw against Inverness Caley Thistle saw Morton just two minutes away from a victory against the Highlanders.

Despite the result McCrorie believes the hosts played well and the on-loan Rangers stopper says they need to build on their strong performances in the final two games of the Championship season.

He added: “Last Tuesday night we were up 2-1 and lost a last-minute equaliser. It was disappointing and there were things we could have done better.

“In the changing room there are a lot of players that are willing to dig in for each other and do well, and hopefully we can kick on now.

“The biggest thing is consistency and since I’ve been here it’s been up and down, but that’s what it’s been like all season.”
