MICHAEL Ledger believes every Morton player must chip in with goals if they are to address their scoring shortage this season.

The English defender believes that Ton’s striking department was already littered with quality before the addition of Tottenham Hotspur youngster Kazaiah Sterling this week.

He is confident that the goals will come sooner rather than later but he insists it's a shared responsibility to boost their scoring tally and create more chances.

He told the Tele: “The goals will come. We’ve got plenty of players on the park who not only can create but can score goals too.

“We’ve got Aidan Nesbitt, Kalvin Orsi and Gary Oliver, players like that who know where the back of the net is.

“There are players there that if they get the chances then they will score.

“It’s stuff that we’re working on in training and have been working on for a while.

“All good teams are clinical in both boxes, so that means not giving anything away defensively and then at the top end of the park and you’re getting chances in the oppositions box then usually it ends up in a goal for the team.

“I think defensively we are solid. Teams don’t normally get a lot of chances against us.

“But I think we need to start creating more clear-cut chances, but I’m of the opinion that that comes right through the team, whether it’s a case of me getting forward a bit more, Strappy [Lewis Strapp] gets forward quite well too.

“But it would be nice to start making more opportunities for the strikers because we’ve got the potential to become a top top team.

“It’s a case of finding a balance of being hard to beat, defensively-minded but Anton [McElhone] is trying to get us to play that bit more freely too, so hopefully in the games coming up, you’ll be able to see what we’re capable of.”

Ledger says that he is enjoying his new-found freedom in the right-back role at Cappielow.

He admitted that it has taken him a while to get used to it - but he hopes that playing there can help Morton push up the table.

He added: “It’s been nice to have a run of games because the beginning of the season was a bit stop-start for me.

“It looks like the right-back position is mine for just now, I’m just enjoying playing.

“I’ve come in there and done alright and if I need to play there until the end of the season, then I’m happy.

“It’s a role I’m getting used to, I don’t mind where I play really."
