Caley Thistle manager John Robertson wary of Morton's attacking threat under David Hopkin


By Andrew Henderson


Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager John Robertson believes tomorrow’s opponents Morton are playing with much more attacking freedom compared to last season.

It has been all change in Greenock in the summer, with former player David Hopkin taking over the managerial reigns and bringing in a raft of new players.

Before, Morton had made their name on being compact and tough to beat, but so far this season the goals have been flowing at both ends.

In eight competitive matches, they have scored 26 goals and conceded 20.

For Robertson, that is down to the influence of the new man in charge.

“They were difficult to break down, but it is a new manager,” Robertson said.

“David likes to get the ball forward quickly, he likes to compete in the opposition half, but he has brought in some really good players.

“He’s brought in lads he knows well, lads that he has worked with in the past, so he has hit the ground running.

“They seem to play with a lot more attacking freedom this year."
