GARY Oliver says Morton shouldn't be written off going into tomorrow's showdown against Montrose despite two costly mistakes giving the Gable Endies the upper hand.

Goals from Russell McLean and Graham Webster have put Stewart Petrie’s side in the ascendency going into tomorrow night’s second leg after Oliver put Ton ahead after five minutes with a neat finish.

The 26-year-old insisted that he and his team-mates have what it takes to overcome the aggregate scoreline and get their survival bid back on track.

He told the Tele: “It was really disappointing to lose out in the way that we did, especially after going 1-0 up so early on.

“The weather didn’t help us but when we went a goal up I thought that we looked good and were in control of the game.

“In the second half we didn’t build on that and we found ourselves on the back foot and ultimately mistakes kill you in games like this and that’s what’s unfortunately happened.

“They were two great goals but that’s just the story of our season, whenever we’ve needed a bit of luck everything’s gone against us.

“We know what we have to do on Tuesday now, we need to go out and win and I believe that we’re more than good enough to do that."
