MORTON goalkeeper Jack Hamilton hopes to use his experience to help rookie shot-stopper Chris Wylie take his game to the next level.

The former Dundee and Hearts 'keeper says that he is looking forward to working alongside the highly-rated youngster in the forthcoming campaign.

While Hamilton will be happy to give the youngster advice, the former Scotland Under-21 expects Wylie to keep him on his toes as he aims to hold on to the number one jersey this season.

Hamilton told the Telegraph: “I first met Chris on Tuesday night before the Cumbernauld Colts game.

"He seems like a great lad who works really hard and is keen to impress.

“Obviously I’ve only been able to see him a few times in training, but he’s looked good from what I’ve seen and he seems like someone that I’ll be able to get on with quite well.

“I’m really looking forward to working with him and the rest of the goalkeeping department.

“I hope it's not just a case of him bringing the best out of me.

"I want to bring the best out of him as well by giving him bits of advice and pushing him on in training as much as I can going forward."

Uncertainty surrounds Ton's Premier Sports Cup fixture against East Kilbride tomorrow night after Gus MacPherson's side were unable to fulfil their first group game at Stranraer on Saturday due to a Covid-19 outbreak.

Hamilton hopes the game goes ahead as scheduled as he looks to make his debut in front of the Morton fans at Cappielow.

The 27-year-old said: “I hope that we can do well, go on a wee run and see where it takes us.

“There are no easy games at all any more so we need to be at our best and approach the game in the right mindset.

“If we can do that, concentrate on ourselves and try and win the game it will give us a good chance of progressing.

“It’ll be good to get out playing again and the cup is all about ticking off teams you might not have played before.

“It doesn’t matter where you play, it’s 11 v 11 and both teams are going out to try and get the all important three points."
