MICHAEL Tidser says Morton have dealt with pressure well in recent weeks after avoiding relegation.

The Ton have had several big games in the last few weeks, overcoming Falkirk and Dunfermline to jump up to fifth in the table.

The Championship has been so tight at the bottom that if the Ton had lost to Falkirk last week, they would have been at the bottom heading into the final two games.

But the two victories have propelled them up the table, and with results going their way this week they are now clear of any danger.

A late Greg Kiltie penalty against the Pars at East End Park on Saturday ensured Morton can now relax a little this weekend when they take on Dundee United.

Tidser told the Tele: “We all knew the importance of the game. It was touch and go but thankfully we managed to get the three points and got up into fifth.

“At half-time, I knew what the scores in the other games were and at that stage a point would have been alright.

“We knew we had to win to take us above them, so thankfully we got the penalty and wee Kiltie stuck it away.

“I said to the boys after the game that when the pressure’s on you’ve just got to show a bit of bravery, and we’ve done that.

“It could potentially have been nine out of three games, because Inverness scored with the last kick of the ball pretty much, which is a great end to the season.

“We’ll take that into next week without any pressure and hopefully we can put on a good show against Dundee United.”
