MORTON’S players say they won’t allow tension between the club and former manager Ray McKinnon to derail their survival bid ahead of tomorrow’s Falkirk clash. Championship games between the two sides have been heated since McKinnon ditched the Ton for the Bairns back at the start of the season. Ton captain Jim McAlister returned to the club last summer Last month’s draw between the two sides was followed by fans brawling on the streets of Greenock. And the grudge between the clubs has been given added spice with Ton midfielder Michael Tidser set to join Falkirk in the summer. But Jonatan Johannson’s men are focused solely on the game itself. Captain Jim McAlister said: “I think it’s important that we just focus on ourselves. “The most important thing tomorrow is not to get caught up in the occasion, because I imagine it’ll be a pretty hostile atmosphere.” Former Ton manager McKinnon angered fans by abandoning club for Falkirk While the Ton have been in dire form, they put in a much improved performance in Tuesday’s 2-2 draw against Inverness. The Cappielow side conceded a late equaliser after leading against their Highland opponents for much of the game. McAlister, 33, revealed him and his team-mates held important discussions ahead of the clash. He said: “We had a couple of team meetings as players just before the Inverness game, just to kind of ram it home about the position we’re in. “The boys listened and took it on board. We set the bar on Tuesday night, especially in the first hour of the game. “We’ve been drumming it into the boys that we don’t drop below those standards.” Youngster Jack Iredale admits he was deflated after the match. He said: “To be honest, it felt like a loss when we got into the changing rooms because we did so well, only to concede that late goal. “But the way we played gave the boys a lot of confidence. In the first half we were excellent, and we fully deserved to win the game.” The 22-year-old Aussie believes Morton have to take that confidence into tomorrow’s game. He said: “Obviously it’s going to be a completely different game, with different pressures, but morale is good after Tuesday.” Iredale has been with Morton since signing in 2017 Many have been surprised at Morton’s involvement in the tight Championship relegation fight. For much of the season the Cappielow side had been pushing for a play-off spot. But they have won only one of their last 13 league games, with sides at the bottom of the table showing improvement. Now they sit just three points off bottom heading into tomorrow’s crucial tie. Their rivals Falkirk are two points below them in ninth place, and picked up a valuable three points away to Dunfermline last week. Jack said: “I definitely wasn’t expecting to be in a relegation fight at the start of the season.” “I think we’ve definitely got the potential to be doing better. We’ve beaten top teams in the league like Ross County this season. “It’s been frustrating. I think it’s been a consistency issue.” Veteran captain Jim agrees with his team-mate’s assessment. He said: “The problem is we’ve not been ruthless enough in both boxes. “If you look back at the goals we lose, it’s criminal. Teams don’t really carve us open. A lot of goals are ones we tend to gift teams. “Ultimately we’ve had some great chances in some of the games and not taken them. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN FOOTBALL” posts_category=”3″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] “It probably boils down to our consistency levels over the course of the season.” While the Cappielow faithful have been far from happy with performances in recent months, Jack Iredale is full of praise for them. He said: “When we went 1-0 down on Tuesday, the fans really got behind us. They saw the way we’d been playing, and saw that we didn’t deserve to go behind. “They really gave us a lift. I think the influence they had on us just goes to show just how important they are to the momentum of the team.” And Ton fans will be hoping their faith is rewarded tomorrow in what may prove to be a decisive game in deciding the fate of the two bitter rivals.

It may seem difficult to reconcile the enduring popularity of Australia’s national song with the casualness of its creation. W. Benjamin Lindner, a Melbourne-based lawyer who has spent years investigating what we know and don’t know about the making of Waltzing Matilda, characterises the song as “a one-off collaboration without any illusions of greatness or expectations of its anthemic qualities”.

It was 90 years ago that Cole Porter penned the phrase “waiter, bring me shad roe”. Cole was a sophisticated guy. Shad is an American saltwater fish, a type of herring that spawns in fresh water at the start of spring. The American shad is prized not for its flesh but its eggs. A bit like the Aussie mullet.
