MICHAEL Ledger insists Morton will head to Montrose this weekend looking to prove a point after falling into the relegation play-offs.

The English defender admits that Ton need to get over their disappointment quickly after their stalemate in Arbroath left them sitting in ninth place needing to negotiate the play-off route to ensure Championship football next season.

The 23-year-old believes the onus is on them to prove they have the battling qualities required to stay in Scotland's second tier after failing to avoid the trap door.

Ledger is preparing for a difficult test but says that he his team-mates have what it takes to get the better of Stewart Petrie’s men over the two-legged semi-final.

He told the Tele: “I was checking the scores on my phone on Tuesday night to see who we would be playing, and it’s turned out to be Montrose with the last kick of a ball by the looks of things.

“It’ll be a tough game but we’ll be going there to prove a point and move on from the disappointment of Friday night relatively quickly.

“It’s disappointing to have finished in ninth place but nothing is set in stone yet, there’s still a lot of football to be played between now and the final whistle.

“We’ve got four games to go and prove that we’re good enough to stay in the Championship, that’s what it’s come down to so we’ve still got a good chance of staying up.

“We’re expecting four tough games against teams who are used to winning most weeks while we’ve struggled - but that’s just where we are.

“They’ll fancy themselves but again we’re the Championship side so we’ve just go to do it for the fans and regain a bit of self-pride.

“It’ll be two tough games up there and then when we play them at Cappielow, but at the minute we’re the Championship team and we want to keep it that way.

“Every game is tough, ever since I've come up to Scotland it’s been tough.

"I’ve played teams across the board from Premiership to League Two and I haven’t had an easy game, so we’ll have to be at our best on Saturday.

“It won't be easy in the slightest but we have what it takes to stay in the Championship.”

Ledger admits that Ton’s efforts in front of goal haven’t been good enough this season.

But the former Sunderland prospect says the blame shouldn't be pinned on the striking department as he believes it’s the team's responsibility to chip in with goals.

He said: “If you look at the table we are where we are for a reason.

“Defensively we’ve been quite sound and the goals against doesn’t actually look too bad. There were just two games that have cost us at different stages of the season.

“Firstly the Raith score and then the Inverness score a few weeks back, where conceding four really didn’t do us any favours.

“We haven’t scored enough goals this season but that’s not just down to the attacking lads, that’s down to the team as a collective effort. We haven’t been good enough in front of goal this season.”
