DAVID Hopkin admits that he has a selection headache ahead of tomorrow’s Championship curtain-raiser against Alloa Athletic.

The Morton boss was delighted with his much-changed side’s performance and game management in their 1-0 win over Ray McKinnon’s Queen's Park on Tuesday night.

The performance has left him with a conundrum as he looks to decide who will win their place in his starting 11 come 3pm tomorrow afternoon.

He told the Tele: “We had some really strong performances in both games against Queen of the South and then Queen's Park on Tuesday there, which has given me food for thought going into tomorrow’s game.

“It’s a good headache to have though because the players have worked hard themselves over the shutdown and then we’ve worked hard over the summer and the full course of pre-season.

“It’s pleasing when you bring subs on in games and then they go and make such an impact on proceedings.

“We worked hard to get the squad together and, as I’ve said before, the budget has been cut again so it’s been massively important that we kept players from last season.

“We’ve also managed to get a lot of young talent in during the transfer window that have added to the group that we already had here.

“There are going to be ups and downs this year, but I’m delighted with what I have at my disposal.

“As we saw against Queen's on Tuesday, we’ve got 20/21 players to choose from that could easily start as two different teams.

"It’s now down to me to keep them happy.

“That was the main objective of Tuesday, to get everybody an equal amount of minutes and to win the game.”

The Ton boss highlighted the impact of goal hero Cameron Blues after his influential performance in the middle of the park.

He feels as if the goal was a reward for the work that the youngster has put in over the last 12 months as he hopes he can kick on even further this season.

He said: “I was delighted for everybody involved, we played well and we got the win with players getting more minutes in the legs to set us up nicely for tomorrow’s game.

“I was delighted for young Cammy, he’s come in from Livingston and he’s worked hard over the last year.

“He always listens and wants to learn to get better as a young player should do.

“That’s why he got his reward on Tuesday, he’s brave and he’s bundles of energy to get into the box and it was a great finish that ultimately won the game for us.”
