JIM Duffy believes Scott Tiffoney could be the answer to Morton’s width problems — because the teenager is a natural in the wide areas.

Duffy has picked Tiffoney to start the last two games to give his side a more dynamic attack and was pleased with the 19-year-old’s contributions.

And while the manager admits he may not use the winger in every game due to his lack of experience at the top level so far in his career, he won’t be afraid to pitch him in when he feels it is right.

He told the Tele: “We’ve been looking to play with a little bit more width, we’ve played Jai Quitongo out there and we’ve had different aspects of our play when we’ve played our full-backs very wide and high to give us width.

“Sometimes it has worked well and other times it hasn’t, that’s football. It’s a little bit of trial and error when you don’t have the same resources as other teams. You have to try and adapt your own squad.

“But Tiff gives us a different type of player because he likes to sit out there and get at full-backs and put crosses in. That’s another option for us. 

“It’s not to say we’ll utilise that all the time but he’s certainly a player who we feel can give us a bit more penetration and a different dimension to the way we play. 

“He’s still inexperienced at Championship level but he’s been training with us for more than a year now and he’s been involved in a number of first-team games off the bench. 

“You want your young players to make progress and he’s doing exactly that.”
