NICKY Cadden says he would rather score a tap-in than repeat his wonder goal against Alloa if it means Morton take all three points against them on Saturday. 

The winger netted a spectacular strike against the Wasps at the Indodrill Stadium in Ton’s 2-0 win in December. 

But Cadden admits he would settle for a two-yard goal over a headline grabbing finish if it secures another crucial victory and moves Ton further away from the relegation zone. 

He told the Tele: “I obviously scored a fantastic goal against them the last time.

“It would be amazing if that could happen again but we’ll see what happens.

“I’d take a tap-in to be honest. I don’t really mind how they go in, as long as we get a win to put some distance between ourselves then that’s all that matters really.

“There are big games coming thick and fast at the minute but in all honesty all the games between now and the end of the season are big games.

“We just need to try and get to as many points as possible and see where that puts us at the end of the year.

“I saw the form table over the last four or five games and we were fourth and Alloa were second and obviously Dundee United are up there too and they’re top of the league, so that just shows you how well we’ve been doing just now. Alloa have obviously done really well to get up there, so we know that we’re in for a really tough game on Saturday.

“Hopefully we can keep our form going and remain unbeaten this year.”

Cadden hopes that the Ton aren’t left out of action again after their game against Ayr United was postponed due to Storm Dennis causing havoc across the central belt.

He admitted that it was annoying to be left idle, but conceded — using the knowledge of the time he spent at the Honest Men — that if the game had gone ahead then any fans brave enough to make their way to Somerset Park probably wouldn’t have seen a great spectacle due to the horrible conditions.

He said: “It was annoying to get the game called off on Saturday because obviously we’ve been on a bit of a roll recently.

“Our heads were in the game and then we were told it was off, so you’re left wondering what to do with yourself because you just get so used to playing football at three o’clock every Saturday. It was annoying but these things happen, I kind of had a feeling that if it was on, then it wouldn’t have been a great spectacle.

“We wouldn’t have been able to pass the ball the way we wanted and it probably wouldn’t have suited my game either with the heavy pitch.

“Obviously I played there last year and it does get heavy in this kind of weather.

“That’s just part and parcel of playing in Scotland, though, it’s always raining!”
