MORTON’S Robbie Muirhead says he is happy to play out of position for the good of the team.

The former Dunfermline striker has been deployed on the left wing against Dundee and Ayr United recently.

Muirhead says he’s prepared to play wherever he’s needed, as long as his name is on the teamsheet and it benefits David Hopkin’s side.

Muirhead hopes that he has shown Hopkin that he has a big part to play this season as he looks to keep his place for the clash against Partick Thistle with Nicky Cadden and Luca Colville recovering from respective injuries.

He told the Tele: “I’ve enjoyed working with the gaffer so far.

“He’s spoken highly of me on a few occasions, so I want to repay the faith that he’s shown in me by bringing me here and hopefully that’s by scoring goals.

“Even if I have to play in other positions like the last few games, I’m happy to play wherever I’m needed.

“I’ve always been the same for that because I think it helps not only myself by getting minutes but also the team because I have an understanding of playing in other positions on the park.

“I’ve had to wait and be patient, so I’ve just had to keep my head down and keep working away because I knew my chance would come, whether that be through an injury or suspension in the team.

“I felt as if I’ve played okay in the two games. I’m trying to find my feet again after not playing for so long, barring a few reserve games, so I need to get my match sharpness up again and hopefully I can kick on from there.

“Hopefully I’ve done enough to keep my place in the team.”

Muirhead is keen to spearhead the Ton’s assault on breaking their away duck and recognises the importance of this weekend’s encounter with Partick Thistle.

He hopes that Saturday can be the occasion that the Ton pick up that crucial first win on the road.

He said: “The away form has got to pick up soon, so hopefully that can be against Partick Thistle as it’s a six-pointer no matter what way you look at it.

“Hopefully if we can get a result there it can kick us on a bit more over the course of the season because we know how good a team that we can be.

“There’s still a lot of football to be played.”
