PLAYMAKER Luca Colville says he feels better off after his baptism of fire since signing for Morton and insists he will be firing on all cylinders soon.

The 20-year-old has faced a testing start to his Ton career after playing in back-to-back defeats against Inverness Caley Thistle.

However, Colville believes being thrown into the deep end by manager David Hopkin will stand him in good stead as he looks to show fans what he can offer.

He told the Tele: “I’ve found it alright. It’s just been a couple of disappointing results the last two weeks. It’s been good to get two starts and obviously play the full 90 minutes on Saturday.

“Inverness are a very good team and we can’t take anything away from them, but it’s been good to start the last two games as it’s given me the opportunity to get my sharpness up to speed again.

“I feel like I’ve been quite effective when I’ve been on the ball, but I know that I can be better so I just need to bring it all together and kick on now.

“The gaffer obviously stands by an ethos of hard work and graft and the attacking side of my game is by far my strong point, but I know that I need to bring in other parts of my game, which I’ve been trying to do.

“Defending may not be my strongest asset, but I’ll always definitely give my all for the team and get back as much as I can to get stuck in.

“I’m trying to do that in games, but the main aim just now is to keep playing for the 90 minutes.”

Colville admits that the two games against Caley were a huge learning curve but says he has enjoyed his experiences so far as he gets to know his new team-mates.

He said: “I learned a lot over the course of the two games, the gaffer told us that they’d [Inverness] been playing together for over a year and that they were a physical side.

“It helped me learn a lot about my team-mates and what our strengths are against an experienced team.

“They were a very possession-based team, so it was really learning how to affect the game when you get on the ball against these well organised sides.

“I’ve taken a lot from the last two games. We just need to start getting wins and really kick on hopefully against Queen of the South, because we have two really tough games after that against the Dundee sides.”
