JIM McAlister has admitted Morton can have no complaints about being in a relegation scrap this season.

The Cappielow outfit’s longest winning streak is only two games in a row and they have struggled for consistency all year.

They are one of the only teams in the Championship not able to put a string of results together and even the bottom clubs in the division have managed longer unbeaten spells.

Jonatan Johansson’s side are currently seventh with two games to go and McAlister believes they deserve to be where they are in the table. 

He insists their lack of consistency has cost them a place in the top four this season.

But with Dunfermline Athletic their opponents today and Dundee United to play next week in their final game of the season, the skipper wants Morton to end on a high note.

He told the Tele: “It will be a case of what if. 

“You finish where you are on merit though. 

“We are probably the only team in the league that hasn’t put a run together, and ultimately that has cost us being anywhere near the play-offs.

“We haven’t managed to get Dunfermline’s run or even Alloa’s, we haven’t done that and that lack of consistency has ultimately come back to bite us.

“We have to look at the last two games and see if we can finish unbeaten.”
