MORTON midfielder Luca Colville hopes that he has the staying power to remain in Anton McElhone’s starting 11 after his goal against Dundee.

The playmaker impressed in the middle of the park against the Dark Blues and is determined to kick on after his second-half header ensured his side came away from the hotly-contested game with a point.

While Colville was disappointed Ton couldn't hang on to all three points, the Englishman was delighted team-mate Craig McGuffie netted for the second week in a row.

He told the Tele: “It’s good for me to get a run in the team.

“Obviously at the start of the season it wasn’t going the way that I’d have wanted it to, especially how I’d finished off last season.

“I’ve had to wait my turn at the start of the season in not playing as many games but now my turn has come around.

“Finally I’m getting a bit of game time and I just need to make sure that I’m playing well every week and giving my all on the park and hopefully start getting some results.

“Hopefully we can get a win on the board soon because at the minute that’s all we care about and it’s the main thing for us going forward.

“It was nice to have scored, but it wasn’t really the main thing I could take from the game given the manner that we gave away the two goals.

“It did feel more like a loss than a win at the weekend but that tells you where we are as a group.

“We’re all delighted for Guff, we know what he can do because he’s shown it at training, he’s absolutely brilliant.

“He’s taking it to the park now which is great to see, he’s got goals and assists to his game and he’s starting to produce them at the right time.

“We all know how good he can be, he’s had a run in the team and he’s managed to get some absolute screamers in the last two games which has got us what could be vital points going forward.”

Colville insists that he and his team-mates must stick together if they are to start getting some wins on the board between now at the end of the season.

He believes that he and his team-mates can cut out errors that have cost them valuable points since the turn of the year.

He said: “It’s been a tough run that we’ve been on, it’s been a long time since we’ve last won a game but we know that ourselves.

“It’s the little mistakes that are costing us just now but we’ve got to make sure that we just stick together as a squad and grind out those points as and when we can in the next games.

“I think we were within our rights to be annoyed with ourselves after the game, it felt like two points dropped because of two poor goals and we’ve got to sort it out between ourselves.

“I think we’ll sort it out in the long run, stop making these mistakes and start turning these draws into wins."
