NICKY Cadden says he will savour his spectacular volley against Alloa for the rest of his life as he looks to build on Morton’s first away win in the league this season.

The Ton talisman’s 65th-minute strike put the Cappielow side on course for victory at Recreation Park and he believes that they must use the result to build momentum.

Cadden was delighted to end their losing run away from home but he insists that he knew it was only a matter of time before the Ton’s fortunes changed on the road.

He told the Tele: “I’d like to think I’ll score a better goal than that in my career. But it was some strike to be fair and it’s one to show the kids and the grandkids when I’m retired, that’s for sure.

“I don’t think I could’ve gotten that goal at a better time if I’m being honest.

“Obviously our away form hasn’t been the best, but our play hasn’t been that bad — we’ve just been losing stupid goals.

“Hopefully the win can give our away form a big boost going into the next couple of weeks, starting against Partick Thistle.

“We weren’t really thinking about when we were going to get that away win but it’s definitely really good for us to get that monkey off our backs.

“We knew we were playing well, but at the same time we just weren’t scoring or conceding silly goals from mistakes.

“We knew that if we could cut all of that out then we would start winning games and we probably could’ve won by four or five on Saturday with the chances that we had.”

The winger hailed the character that the squad have shown in the last few weeks not to let their heads drop.

He added: “It’s good to get the win and hopefully it’s a platform that we can build on going forward.

“The team were good, we played relatively well.

“I thought we were alright in parts of the first half, maybe a bit ropey in others, but in the second half we really showed our character, because we all know that Alloa are a good side and probably shouldn’t be where they are in the table.

“To show that we can come and beat teams like this away from home really does mean a lot and it is huge for us and the fans who came to watch.

“We were a bit sloppy at times, but we had a bit of luck that has been missing recently and the boys were absolutely brilliant to a man.”
