DANNY Rogers has revealed he feared pre-match tiredness would wreck his chances of securing his first clean sheet for Morton against Dundee.

The Irish shotstopper says that he had never felt so bad before a game and was worried that he would have to wait another week for his first Ton shutout.

However, Rogers overcame this to help Ton secure the three points and a clean sheet against the Dark Blues.

He told the Tele: “That was the worst I’ve felt before a game. It wasn’t even nerves, I just felt really tired but I’ve been told before that your worst warm-up usually means you’ll have a good game and I told myself that before kick-off. Thankfully it’s paid off.

“I’m absolutely delighted to have got the clean sheet. I wasn’t expecting it to come on Saturday, but you get a clean sheet when you least expect it.

“I thought that was my best game in a Morton shirt, I made a few good saves in the first half.

“It was tough going, it was windier than I thought it would be and in the first half it was hard to get a good connection on my clearances. The game seemed to go on forever so I was dying for the final whistle at the end, but the result and clean sheet will do my confidence wonders.

“The boys defended brilliantly as a unit. Brian McLean’s tackle at the end was an absolute match winner — I’m delighted for everyone.

“We just need to sort out our away form now.”
