CAMERON Salkeld believes his maiden goal for Morton should have given his side their first point on the road this season.

The winger was left feeling hard done by after the Dens Park defeat and says that he and his Morton teammates should have broken their away hoodoo on Friday.

Salkeld’s first goal for the club just seconds after Kane Hemmings had given Dundee the lead wasn’t enough as Jamie Ness struck, right, with ten minutes remaining to seal the points for the Dark Blues.

He told the Tele: “Obviously I’m delighted to get my first goal for the club, but I’m mostly gutted about the result.

“We’ve come up to Dundee and played well for the first 60 minutes and then they’ve scored from the corner, which to be fair I could’ve done better with, because I’ve given it away.

“It was a great reaction from the team to get an equaliser so quickly. Robbie [Muirhead] put a great ball into the box and all I’ve thought about is trying to get on the end of it and then it’s gone in, so I’m thankful for that.

“I thought we did well again, especially because they’re a good side. We kept them out for the majority of the game.

“Just like the Ayr game, the least we deserved was a point. It’s just fine margins again.

“That’s two games in a row now where it’s been like that and we probably should’ve taken something from the games.

“We’ve got to go again next week against Partick Thistle away. We’ve got a week to prepare for it and to make up for what happened on Friday.

“We deserved more. We are getting better as a team and we’re so close to stopping this curse of no points away from home.”

Salkeld says he wants to use the disappointment of Friday’s defeat to bounce back in their crunch game against Partick Thistle at Firhill on Saturday.

He added: “We’re all disappointed individually and collectively, but we’ll come back in and go again.

“We’ve got a great group of lads in there who are very passionate about what they do along with the gaffer and the backroom staff.

“We want to do well for the club and for the team.

“We’ve just got to role our sleeves up and fight again next week and hopefully put in a good performance and get three points.”
