MORTON manager Jonatan Johansson says it’s a ‘great achievement’ for his side to reach fifth place in the Championship with one game to go.

Ton leapfrogged Dunfermline with their 1-0 victory over the Pars at the weekend, and with results going their way, they moved up two places in the table – with the Cappielow outfit securing their league status in the process.

If Morton secure a victory against Dundee United, who are already assured of a second place finish in the division heading into the play-offs, then Johansson’s men will finish fifth.

With other results in recent weeks going against the Ton, they finally went their way on Saturday, and Johansson heaped praise on his players for producing the goods at the end of the season.

He told the Tele: “We looked positively towards this game.

“Results didn’t go our way into this game and it was up to ourselves to get us out of the situation we faced.

“We only had to look upwards to see if we won on Saturday we would go fifth with a game to go.

“I think it’s a really good achievement for us in this league, especially where we were only four games ago, so credit to the boys and to everyone involved.”
