REECE Lyon says that he’s ready to come back and make up for lost time after a frustrating start to 2020.

The 19-year-old hasn’t featured since coming on against St Johnstone as a sub in his only appearance this year after rolling his ankle in a reserve game last month. 

But he insists that he’s got what it takes to regain his place and kick on under David Hopkin.

He told the Tele: “I’m feeling good. I’ve trained for two weeks now since I’ve been fully 

“I played with the reserves on Monday last week up at Ross County and scored twice, which is a rare occurrence in all honesty, so I’m feeling good and ready to go again.

“It’s been a bit up and down since Christmas for me because I rolled my ankle, but you can’t expect to play every game and be fit 24/7.

“I’ve expected it so I’ve just tried to stay as positive as I can so that I can get myself back into the team as quickly as possible.

“Hopefully I can only kick on further and reach the potential that people think I can reach.

“I’ve not done too badly this season. I felt as if I did myself proud at the end of last season and I’ve just tried to carry that on.

“I think that I’m second top goal scorer in the team tied with some of the other boys and I’ve not been in the team all the time, so I’ve kept my momentum going from last season.

“The gaffer is always going to be bringing players in, whether that’s in January or the summer, that’s what happens. 

"That just makes players work that ten per cent harder in training to keep their place because there’s a new boy waiting to make an impact.”

Morton were out of action on Saturday with their clash against Ayr United postponed after Somerset Park was deemed unplayable due to heavy rain.

Lyon hopes that the Ton can revisit the fixture against the Honest Men and use it to their advantage at a later date.

And the starlet believes that Morton have it all to play for as the season enters the business end.

He added: “The Championship has always been like this, in term of it being so tight, and it was like this last year. 

“We were in a relegation battle up until the final few weeks and then we ended up finishing fifth, so we know that everything is still up for grabs.

“It’s obviously not great that the game has been called off but with other teams around us dropping points or being called off then it’s not been as bad as it could’ve been.

“Obviously, Alloa drew against Dundee United on Friday night, so it’s kept them right behind us and whenever the game against Ayr gets rearranged then hopefully we can get three points to pull ourselves further away from relegation.”
