MORTON's match winner George Oakley says the key to their Motherwell success was the togetherness that's seen them go 13 games unbeaten.

The Ton striker netted his 11th goal in all competitions to fire his side into the Scottish Cup last eight at the expense of Stuart Kettlewell's men in what he believes is a massive result for the club going forward.

Oakley had been hoping Morton could draw anyone at home in the quarter finals as they lie just 90-minutes away from a trip to Hampden in April - and he got his wish with a Cappielow clash against Hearts.

He told the Tele: "That was a massive win, I'm just proud of the boys as well as myself to be honest.

"The togetherness that we have in the dressing room is unbelievable. It showed on the pitch on Friday, it was a great win a great atmosphere and a great result.

"I think that's the key to this run, the heart and commitment we've got as a team. We see week in, week out how tight we are but we really are together in there (the dressing room). It's great to be a part of if I'm being honest.

"I think people realise that coming to Cappielow is really difficult and they'll not look forward to it.

"We're just confident and we want to keep it going."
