LUCA Colville feels justice was done after securing three points against Dunfermline.

The Englishman revealed Ton players harboured a sense of injustice after they had to settle for a point the last time the Pars visited Cappielow in October.

Colville believes that they were well worth their victory over Stevie Crawford’s men on Saturday.

The 20-year-old delivered up a delightful cross for Jim McAlister to nod the Ton ahead five minutes into the second half and believes that he and his team-mates were due a win against the Pars.

He told the Tele: “We were hard done by the last time that they came here and we had to grind that result out. The boys dug in deep on Saturday so I felt like we really deserved the win.

“It was hard going with the conditions, obviously it was a bit touch and go to see if it was going to be on, so fair play to the referee for letting it go ahead. I felt like we took it in our stride and dealt with it very well.

“It was the same conditions for both teams so we weren’t in a position to make any excuses. 

“We dealt with it well and we ground it out this time to come away with the three points.

“Obviously it was annoying to go 1-0 down, but we got straight back into it and we looked really good going into half-time. 

“We wanted to start the second half with the same mentality.

“It was a really good result for us.”

The youngster hopes that both his and the team’s upturn in form continues and is adamant that the Ton can go to McDiarmid Park on Saturday and come away with a shock result against top flight St Johnstone.

He added: “I’m starting to find a bit of momentum now. 

“Obviously at the start I found it a bit hard to adjust due to the physicality like I’d said before, but I’ve been building myself up, so now I just need to keep doing what I’ve been doing over the last couple of games."

On setting up McAlister’s header to put Ton 2-1 up, he said: “It wasn’t really a pitch for dribbling, so it was all really about getting a touch and putting it in the mixer first time. 

“I’d seen folk running into the box and thankfully Jim got on the end of one to score a fantastic header. 

“We could’ve had more really.

“As long as we keep getting wins then that’s all that matters really.

“It was a massive win for us, especially with the league being so tight, and obviously we have a game in hand.

“We’re joint on 25 points with a few clubs now and we’ve got the game in hand which puts us in a good position going forward.

“We just need to go from here and hopefully keep this run going. 

“We’ve now got back-to-back wins behind us and we can go into the Scottish Cup game on Saturday with a bit of confidence behind us.

“It’ll be a tough game but we’ve just got to believe in ourselves and go there with the firepower that we have and hopefully be in the hat for the next round.”
