|Morton defender Ricki Lamie was disappointed with Saturday’s 1-0 loss to Falkirk but feels he and his teammates have more in their locker and need to start proving it on a more regular basis. Morton have beaten rivals St Mirren 4-1 at home, fought back to beat Dunfermline 3-2, beaten Queen of the South in Dumfries, and secured high-scoring win over Falkirk and Brechin. Lamie recalls these kind of results when he says the the Sinclair Street side have proven they are capable of producing impressive results.
He said: "It was another frustrating game for everybody. They definitely came and brought the game to us first half, even though I would probably say we had the better chances. They put their presence on it more, but you look at the goal-line scrambles that we had, then we could have went in at least (on) level pegging. But obviously, aye, they were looking hungry for it and looking lively, so it was disappointing. Overall, it wasn’t good enough. We all realise it. We need to cut that out, coming away frustrated and disappointed. We need to make it better, to a man, everybody, to improve our performances and find that ruthlessness. We need to find that cutting edge that we’re missing. That’s not just attacking players. It’s right across the pitch, whether it be deliveries into the box, or through passes in forward areas, or forward passes from deeper areas. The effort and desire is there but we are struggling to come up with that bit of magic just now. Everybody is hurting, because we know we’re better than what we are showing. We’ve showed it in patches this season and taken three or four goals off teams. Some of our performances have proved we have got it in the locker, but we’ve just not been able to come up with it on a consistent basis yet."
