STRIKER Bob McHugh says he is determined to make another 100 appearances for Morton after his milestone match on Saturday.

The 28-year-old sees his long-term future at Cappielow after his 100th appearance for Ton against Queen of the South.

He believes the significant landmark will motivate him to continue his goalscoring exploits for David Hopkin’s side after he netted his 30th for the club at the weekend.

McHugh told the Tele: “Getting to 100 games is a good achievement for me.”

“Obviously I’m really enjoying my time here and the number is something that I wasn’t aware of in the build-up to the game on Saturday.

“I don’t actually think I’ve made 100 appearances for any club I’ve been with, so it is pretty significant for me.

“I played a few times with Motherwell and Falkirk but I don’t think it was anywhere near 100, so it was nice to know.

“It’s not something I want to dwell on though. I want to look at it as something to improve myself on the future because this is my third season at Cappielow now and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it, so hopefully there’s more to come.

“I’m averaging just over 30 games a season in my time here and that’s with a few silly injuries thrown into contention as well.

“Every season I’ve been here it’s been competitive, and we’ve been battering away at getting up the league in that time.

“The club looks as if it’s going places with everything going on behind the scenes, so it’s something that hopefully I can be a part of.

“It’s a great club, it’s a nice place to come into work everyday and it’s a great bunch of lads in the dressing room. The fans are excellent too, I really enjoy being here and I know that I’m lucky to be here as well, whether that be coming in to training or playing on a match day.

“Hopefully I can get 100 more appearances and then be talking about playing 200 games for Morton, but that’s not up to me unfortunately. I can only really concentrate on between now and the end of the season and I just want to do my best for the club and to do well for the team in that time.”

McHugh believes that the omens are in his favour as he sets new targets in his scoring return for the Ton.

The hitman has already improved on last season’s tally of 10 goals and hopes to find the back of the net in the remaining games of the season.

He said: “I’ve got 11 goals now for the season, so hopefully in the 13 games to go I can just keep plodding away and firing them in towards the end of the season and see where that takes me.

“I think I’m averaging a goal every three games or something like that, which ideally I’d like to improve upon.

“For every season I’ve been here I’ve scored more goals than I did the previous year, so hopefully that continues to be the case and I can keep producing this season.”
