LUCA Colville has vowed to hit top form after his first goal for Morton helped seal a crucial victory over Arbroath.

The midfielder was delighted to find the net for the first time since signing from Bradford City in the summer and he hopes that he can kick on now that he is off the mark.

He hailed the impact that senior players such as John Sutton, captain Jim McAlister and Chris Millar have had on him while he has made a big adjustment to life in Scotland.

Colville was thrilled after he and his team-mates fought to earn back-to-back away victories for the first time under David Hopkin.

He told the Tele: “I’m buzzing for the boys, it was a tough game for us because we knew what to expect.

“Everyone ran their socks off and I think that we really deserved the three points.

“Playing next to John is great experience for me and it’s good to learn from him.

“He’s played a lot of games and scored a lot of goals and he’s helped me throughout the game. He knows what’s best for me at certain times.

“We’ve got other experienced players like Jim and Midge [Chris Millar], and I’m always learning off them as they help me through the game as well.

“Robbie [Muirhead] was fantastic, he’d made a lot of forward runs and I knew that if I kept matching them then a chance would come to me eventually.

“Luckily one fell to me and I’ve got a tap-in to get my first goal.

“I was waiting for my first goal really. I feel like I put in a performance that deserved one.

“I just hope that I can keep scoring and start to add some assists to my game and really kick on from my settling in period.”

The midfielder hopes that now he has got to grips with the Championship he can start to iron out some inconsistencies to his season and help Ton climb up the league as they now lie only three points off Dunfermline who sit in fifth place.

He added: “Obviously I’ve been in and out of the team but hopefully I can kick on from here and put in some consistent performances for the remainder of the season.

“It was a big change for me moving away from my family and now living myself, but I’ve taken it in my stride and been getting used to it.

“It had taken me a while to settle down and get used to things, it was a big change for me like I’ve said before.

“I had to get up to speed with the physicality of the league and I’ve just been working hard every day.”
