MORTON defender Michael Ledger says his first goal in British football was a bittersweet moment after his side fell to a 2-1 defeat against Raith Rovers.

The Englishman admits that his first strike had been long overdue and he was delighted to find the net for the first time since joining Ton.

But his joy turned to disappointment after Rovers staged a comeback through goals from Aidan Connolly and Ethan Ross to take all three points.

Ledger believes that Ton performed admirably in the first half an hour before the game fell away from them.

He told the Tele: “That was my first goal in the UK. I've been desperate to get a goal for a while now and it’s been a long time coming.

“It’s nice to get off the mark, but ultimately it’s bittersweet because we couldn’t get the result to go with it, so we’re disappointed with that.

“Even before the goal, the way we started was excellent. They were slow out the blocks and we took the game right to them and then we kept our shape really well.

“It’s just frustrating with the timings of the goals which seems to be our issue at the minute, but it’s frustrating that we couldn’t come away with anything."
