MORTON defender Brian McLean branded their five-goal mauling at Stark's Park 'catastrophic'.

McLean admits that he and his team-mates need to go back to the drawing board after the route against Raith Rovers.

The 35-year-old admitted they need to put the 90 minutes behind them quickly ahead of a busy week of Betfred Cup action against Renfrewshire rivals St Mirren and Partick Thistle.

He told the Tele: “Trying to analyse the game, it was just catastrophic, but if we’re trying to take anything away from it, it’s only three points dropped regardless of how many goals we conceded.

“We do need to address that, which we will do, and we need to look at ourselves in the mirror and see what we can do to prevent these things from happening again.

“We need to go into training orning and brush ourselves down and move on from this.

“It’s disappointing that it’s a three-week break from the league, but it allows us to re-evaluate our focus on the Betfred Cup games.

“Fortunately we’ve got the perfect scenario on Wednesday night to right the wrongs from Saturday.

“We need to go out and prove a point that it was a one-off and that we’ve learned from our mistakes and look to do a job on St Mirren.”
