Recent signing Filipe Morais has been discussing the midweek clash with Motherwell following the 4-2 reversal in the CIS Cup.

Giving the credit to the Fir Parkers after their impressive display the Portugese wide man said ‘To be fair, Motherwell probably produced the best game of their lives.

‘We made mistakes, but they were really at the races. All credit to them, they caused us loads of problems at the back. We seemed a bit jaded and tired from Celtic on Sunday, but at this level you have to play Sunday-Wednesday-Saturday if you want to do well in the league and lift trophies.

‘It was a big upset, but we have to take it on the chin and get ready for Saturday.’

Manager John Collins praised Morais contribution after Wednesday night’s match commenting he may have played his way into a starting role for the Kilmarnock clash.

Morais was reluctant to put too much emphasis on the managers comments saying ‘I was happy with how I played when I came on. I did my bit, but it wasn’t enough.

‘I want to start most matches, but everyone plays a part and you just have to keep your head up. Everyone is disappointed when they don’t start, but the squad is basically a rotation system where everyone is as good as one another.

‘Until the manager names the team on Saturday, I’ll work hard and hope for a start. He usually leaves it quite late to decide and nobody knows, but I believe I’m finding my feet and I’m ready to perform. Obviously, losing was a big disappointment and we need to bounce straight back.’

And so say all of us!
