JIMMY Knowles believes justice was done in their penalty shoot-out win over Montrose after being denied his first Morton goal by a controversial offside decision.

The Ton striker insists his second-half strike should have stood after it was ruled out.

The Mansfield Town loanee says it made him determined to find the net in the shoot-out and was the first player to step up to the spot.

He is glad that Ton prevailed after a tough afternoon in Angus against Stewart Petrie’s men and now hopes they can continue their run in the SPFL Trust Trophy.

He told the Tele: “I’m a bit annoyed that I never got a goal in normal time if I’m being honest.

“There was a shot at the front post 10 minutes or so into the second half that I have no idea how the 'keeper has got down to save it and then there was one a minute or two later on that I scored that was given as offside.

“I don’t think I was offside but it’s one that I’ll have to look back on, but I’m just glad that we’ve managed to get through to the quarter-final.

“I wanted to take a penalty and I did want to be first up to take one.

“I wanted to put a bit of pressure on them and thankfully I did that.

"We’ve got another game to look forward to now and hopefully we can have some success in this competition."
