ROBBIE Muirhead says his first goal in nearly two years has lifted the pressure off his shoulders after his wonder strike sealed Morton’s place in the Scottish Cup fourth round.

The striker ended his goal drought when he fired the ball into the top left corner to knock out East Fife at Bayview.

Muirhead hopes that the strike — his first since netting against Annan in the Betfred Cup in July 2019 — can help him turn a corner in Morton colours as he looks to end the season on a high.

He told the Tele: “I’m delighted to have popped up and scored the winner and get us through to the next round.

“It feels like a weight lifted off my shoulders after not scoring since Annan last season.

“If I am selected, I’ll try my best to step up to the plate.

“I can only see what happens, keep on training well and see where it takes me.

“I’ve enjoyed the change since the gaffer has come in.

“I knew it myself because that’s just the way football is, but I needed to be patient and I’m glad that I got an opportunity to help the boys progress into the next round.”
