Calum Gallagher insists the “energy and intensity” of life under new manager Jack Ross already has the Paisley club buzzing,
The squad were afforded a free weekend when Morton were in League Cup action against Aberdeen, and former Rangers trainee Gallagher believes the extra time on the training ground with Ross is paying dividends.
Gallagher said: “There’s been a real intensity and he’s bedding down his philosophy. There’s a great energy about the place and we’re delighted to have him in.” Manager Peter Houston is unsure how he will be received at Tannadice as he prepares to return to former club Dundee United for the first time.
Houston, who guided United to Scottish Cup glory in 2010, said: “I’ve no idea what the reaction will be from the fans, it’s been quite a while since I left there. Winning the cup with them was special but we’re now in opposition.” Gavin Skelton has hailed tomorrow’s opponents Raith Rovers as a great example of a Championship side that have bounced back from a sticky spell.
“The Championship is a really tight league and if you go into any game not at your best you can pay the price,” Skelton said.
“Raith had a bad run of injuries and results suffered, however, they stayed calm and as soon as they started getting players back their results improved.
“We are on a disappointing run and working very hard to get out of it. Once we have everyone available we will be stronger but in the meantime we will continue to work hard to get good results.”
