Dundee United winger Fraser Aird admits they must be cautious of Morton mounting a fightback of their own as the Terrors look to bounce back from last week’s 5-0 loss to Ayr.
Robbie Neilson’s side will hope to rectify last Friday’s home hiding from the Honest Men as they head for Cappielow on Saturday but the Ton will, too, be looking for a reaction from their 3-0 defeat to Dunfermline last weekend.
And Championship Player of the Month for November, Aird, is as aware of the threat Jonatan Johansson’s men will pose down in Greenock.
“Morton lost 3-0 to Dunfermline and will want to put that right,” he said.
“They made it hard for us at Tannadice and it will be a tough game on a tight Cappielow pitch on Saturday.
“Everyone was disappointed with the Ayr game.
“There will be times in football when we lose games but the manner we lost it wasn’t good.
“We’ve dropped three points but that match is out of the way now and we’re looking forward to, hopefully, getting back on track with a win against Morton.”
Looking at his own displays, the Canadian assist king has been pleased with how he has progressed as a player under boss Robbie.
He added: “He’s given me the confidence to know that I’m going to be playing and that I can go and express myself.
“He knows that there will be times when I give the ball away and when I kick it out of the park but he also knows that I could come up with a goal the next time or set one up.”
