Renfrew striker Scott Morton hopes his side can avenge their heavy defeat to Cambuslang Rangers on Saturday.

The forward, who has scored 11 goals for the Frew so far this campaign, is hoping his side can put down a statement to their promotion rivals with a win.

The New Western Park side are in second in the Super First Division, with Cambuslang one point behind them in third.

And Morton hopes his side can come away with the three points on Saturday after a disappointing outing against them back in November.

He said: “The last time we played them it was disappointing.

“Cambuslang are the best team that I’ve personally come up against this year at our level in the league.

“Anybody can beat anybody in this league, but we’re confident of going there and not being scared of anyone.

“It’s a big game for us as they’re only a point behind us and if we get a result it’ll keep us ahead of them.”

The 25-year-old missed a large chunk of games this season due to work commitments.

But he played in both their friendlies this week against Premier League sides Clydebank and Kilwinning Rangers, Renfrew drawing both games.

And bar their 5-3 game against Beith at the end of last month, Morton feels his side have been more than competitive in their ties against teams in the division above them.

He added: “Considering they’re top of the league to get a 1-1 draw is not too bad.

“That’s a few Premier League teams we’ve played in friendlies, and the only game we’ve looked out of place is in the Beith game.

“I’m doing well this season, I’m enjoying. I need to work every second Saturday just now, so I miss a couple of games, but if I chip in with a few goals here and there then I can help out.”

Renfrew have surprised many this season with their promotion push, after escaping relegation in the last few fixtures at the end of last season.

And Morton reckons it’s down to the unity the players have on and off the pitch that has sparked their rise up the table this year.

He said: “It’s a good group of boys, we all get on with each other.

“If you get on well off the park you’re going to get on well.

“We put the hard work in at training, we have a laugh off the park with each other and enjoy it and we’re seeing the benefits of it on the park.

“You can see the benefits of it last Saturday [against Larkhall Thistle] when we scored two goals in the last few minutes to win it.

“We’re fighting until the end of games and we’re not giving up.”
