MORTON’S Charlie Telfer insists their fight to fend off relegation is far from over.

The Ton gave themselves a real boost on Saturday by beating Falkirk 2-0, moving the Cappielow outfit up to sixth place in the table.

But they are still just two points above the relegation play-off spot and five above the Bairns, who prop up the table with two league games remaining. A win this weekend against Dunfermline, however, could lift Jonatan Johansson’s side into fifth place and would all but secure their place in the division next year.

While their victory at the weekend boosted their survival odds massively, Telfer says they can’t take their foot of the pedal just yet.

The 23-year-old also revealed club captain Jim McAlister had been the first to person to tell the players after coming off the pitch on Saturday their relegation fight was far from over.

He told the Tele: “Jim was the first one in saying we can’t celebrate this one.

“We’ve got the game next week and if we win that one then we can enjoy it and should be enough.

“With Partick and Queen of the South winning at the weekend it’s a big three points for us, but I don’t think we’re safe.

“We need to get a good result this weekend against Dunfermline and then hopefully enjoy the last game of the season and just put in another good performance.”

Morton have struggled for form in the last few months, recording just three wins in 20 outings prior to their win at the Falkirk Stadium at the weekend.

The Ton drew 2-2 with Inverness Caley Thistle last week, with the visitors scoring a last-minute equaliser to break hearts late on.

Despite not getting all three points against the Highlanders, it was the most positive performance the Ton had put in over the last month.

Former Almere City and Dundee United player Telfer feels there is a positivity around the side again after their last two performances.

He added: “You look at Inverness and they’re in the play-offs.

“We wanted to win that after they were playing on the back of their Scottish Cup game.

“We knew what was at stake against Falkirk with the history behind that and it being so close at the bottom.

“It’s been difficult, at times we’ve had a go at each other when we’ve conceded goals we shouldn’t have conceded and not been ruthless enough at the other end.

“We’ve got a good group of experience and young boys.

“The experienced guys in the team have been good at helping the younger ones, keeping them on their toes and vice versa, bringing that youthfulness, and that’s helped keep us positive knowing we could do it.

“After Inverness and Saturday we have a wee bit of momentum now, and that’s something we’ve lacked all season.”
