CAMERON Salkeld has a point to prove against Queen of the South this weekend after admitting he was at fault for Inverness Caley’s second goal on Saturday.

The winger apologised to his team-mates following the Challenge Cup defeat after losing Aaron Doran in the build-up to the Irishman scoring Caley’s crucial second.

Salkeld now wants to make amends against the Doonhamers in the Championship tomorrow. 

He told the Tele: “It was good to get the minutes under my belt. I’m obviously still waiting for a chance like that in the league but it was good to play.

“I felt like we executed the game plan we had set out quite well up until they scored the first goal.

“I held my hands up for the second goal, he ran off me and that was quite poor from me, but I’ll obviously look to move on from it.

“The last two games against Inverness, we haven’t been the Morton that I know and we all know that we haven’t been up to scratch.

“They were hard games to play in, but we’re learning every day.

“The gaffer has been telling us that every day and we’ll come good eventually. We just need to get that team balance right now and I’m sure we’ll have a successful season.

“It’s all about getting my concentration level back up along with my fitness. Then hopefully I can get some more games and show that I can do better.

“Saturday is a really good chance for us to prove what we’re all about.”

Salkeld has the bit between his teeth as he looks for redemption against Queens, after having what looked like the winning goal wrongly ruled out for offside in the Betfred Cup group stage earlier this season.

He says that he and his team-mates are keen to show just how much they’ve improved since the tie in August as they look to improve their league position.

He added: “We know Queen of the South are a good team. Obviously we played them in the Betfred Cup and it went all the way to penalties when it shouldn’t really have gone that far.

“I thought I had scored the winner and will look to use what happened in that game to push myself on. I hope I can get on and get a goal that counts this time - and it’ll be that bit sweeter if it’s against them

“I just need that bit of luck. The games against Inverness Caley were hard because it was backs to the wall for a lot of the match, but hopefully on Saturday we can enjoy a bit more possession and show what we’re all about.

“Hopefully we can give a good account of ourselves and keep our decent league form going.

“If we can win our home games and nick some points here and there away from Cappielow, there’s no reason why we can’t be successful.”
