MORTON striker Kalvin Orsi believes that he is maturing in his role of a lone striker - and is confident that goals are on the way.

The 23-year-old former Aberdeen kid says that he has been working tirelessly on and off the park to try and make the position his own after Ton’s decent start to the season.

Orsi hopes that he can start to find the back of the net sooner rather than later - although he is happy to put the success of the team first before any personal achievements.

He told the Tele: “I’ve really enjoyed the start to the season that we’ve had.

“We’ve played our opening four league games on top of our Betfred games, so we’re really getting back into the swing of things after the time off that we had.

“No matter what team you’re in, it’s hard to nail a starting position down week-in, week-out, so it’s filled me with confidence that I’ve been the one mostly that the gaffer has looked to to lead the line.

“On a personal level, obviously I want to be doing better in terms of goals and assists but they can come at any time.

“You just need to rely on the service coming in for you and hope that something falls your way and you can kickstart things.

“I’m happy just to be playing and working for the team just now.

“For the games that I’ve played, I’ve been coming up against big guys in defence and we play quite direct football.

“That means it can turn into a bit of a wrestle up against some of these guys and I think that that’s why I’m quite tailored to the role because it is that bit more physical and I’m not fussed about going toe-to-toe with them, it doesn’t bother me.

“It is a hard role and I’ve had to learn that sometimes it’s better to be selfless for the benefit of the team.

“I know that the first goal is coming for me and I hope it comes sooner rather than later.

“I'm hungry for it but I could go a run of games without a goal and I wouldn’t change my approach to things, I’m always going to go for it.

“I’ll always work hard for the team and hopefully wind up in the right position, the goals are a welcomed bonus for me."

Orsi believes that Ton have plenty to be positive about after their start to the season, with two wins from four in the league and an unbeaten run in the Betfred Cup group stage.

He is adamant that Ton could be pushing towards a place at the top end of the table come April.

He said: “We need to look at things positively.

"We’ve won two out of our first four league games, six out of 12 points isn’t too bad when you think about it.

“Although we missed out away from home against Dundee and Raith, Dundee were clinging on at the end and we should’ve scored and it could’ve been a totally different game at Raith if we had put those two half chances away before half-time.

“We’re not going to lie down for anyone at all this year.

“I think we’ll be up there or there abouts this season.”
