MORTON striker Kalvin Orsi is adamant that there will be no love lost against St Mirren as he returns to Paisley on the other side of the Renfrewshire divide tonight.

The 23-year-old hit man is going into the Betfred Cup showdown with a point to prove, after admitting that he and his team-mates are still hurting from Saturday’s drubbing at Raith.

Orsi, who started his career in Paisley, revealed that Ton will go out looking to make amends in what is the club's biggest game of the season so far.

He told the Tele: “It’s a big derby, coming off the back of a big loss like that, so I think that the game has come at the right moment for us to really strike back and show what we’re all about.

“Games don’t come much bigger than this - it’s a Renfrewshire Derby.

“I’m buzzing for it because I’ve never played in one before, but I know how much it means for everyone connected with the club.

“All will be forgotten if it goes well tomorrow, so we’ll be looking to go into the game to make amends.

“Obviously I used to play for St Mirren, they were the team to give me my first professional start on that exact pitch, so it’s a bit of a full circle moment for me, but I firmly know where my allegiances lie.

“I think the last time I played there I scored a diving header so I can only hope for a repeat of that this time around.

“We’ll be looking to get one up on them and represent the club well, but on a personal note it would be nice to go there and do really well too."

Orsi believes Morton are still in with a fighting chance to make it into Sunday's draw with four points from the opening two games.

He is confident that Ton can go and win both games against their biggest rivals tonight and Partick Thistle on Saturday in what could be a nail-biting affair.

He said: “We’ve got two massive games in such a short space of time and we’ll have played three games in the space of a week, which is really hard going.

“It’s two huge games like I’ve said before and, in all honesty, I think that we can go in and win the both of them.

“St Mirren will no doubt be the hardest out of the two, but if we can go into this game and get a positive result then we go to Firhill on Saturday with a really strong opportunity to win the group.

“We can't afford to get too ahead of ourselves like that either because it could just as easily go the other way.

“We need to go there full of confidence, set up well and come away from the game with no regrets.”
