STEPHEN ROBINSON has revelled in his side’s 4-0 trouncing of Morton but warned that his side must stay grounded as the real challenges lie ahead.

Robinson was asked if his side had adapted and progressed at a faster rate than he’d expected, but the manager was coy in his answer.

“Possibly but it’s going to take time. I’m not fooling myself, there is still a lot of work to do.

“You don’t bring nine players in and have instant success, that’s not going to happen. But you can see the makings of what we are trying to do.

“All the good football we played, we earned the right to play that and that’s the biggest plus point for me.”

Goals from Charles Dunne, Chris Cadden, Richard Tait and Louis Moult saw Jim Duffy’s Morton demoralised and defeated.

Duffy went on the record to explain that injuries had hampered his squad’s preparation for the match.

“You need all your best players available to compete and unfortunately we don’t have that at the minute. We were decimated with injury at the back and had Gary sent off, and had Gary Oliver missing as well – he has been in hospital for a few days with a viral infection.

“We had one recognised centre-back, who is a player-coach, in Darren Barr, who is also playing with an injury.”

The ‘Well kick off their Ladbrokes Premiership campaign at home to Rangers next Sunday and will be hoping to replicate their Betfred Cup goalscoring, which has seen nine goals in two games.
