Elgin City forward Greg Morrison is confident the Black and Whites can build momentum at a crucial stage in the League 2 season.
Sixth-placed City take on Stirling Albion in a crucial match at Borough Briggs today, with the on-form Binos five points ahead of Gavin Price’s men.
After Elgin returned to winning ways with a 3-0 victory at Albion Rovers last weekend, Morrison feels a triumph today would be a major boost to their promotion play-off hopes.
Morrison said: “If we are wanting to push for that last promotion spot, it’s a massive game.
“It would help us to close the gap, it’s almost a six-pointer for us.
“With them picking up a lot of momentum in the last few games, it would be good to try and lose them a bit of form.
“Hopefully we can go on a bit of a run, we’ve got a good few fixtures coming up so it’s a great opportunity for us to start putting some results together.
“Last week was a brilliant performance against Albion Rovers down there. If there was ever a time to put a run of results together it’s now, with the teams that we’re coming up against.
“It’s a real opportunity for us to climb the table again and get us on a real run of form.
“I have seen it in seasons gone past, that it can come down to the last game of the season.
“Every point matters in every week we play. Every game is a massive one for us as we push for the promotion play-offs.”
On-loan County forward Morrison, who has netted five goals for City this term, has been joined by Staggies team-mate Ross MacIver who made his debut in last weekend’s victory at Cliftonhill.
Morrison feels MacIver can benefit from his spell at Borough Briggs, adding: “I have played with Ross for a number of years all through the youths at County.
“He’s a year younger than me, so he’s getting to that age where he needs to experience first team football.
“Training full time helps everyone’s development, but something you can’t get there is the men’s and physical side of it, which will be a good learning experience for him.
“Since all the new boys have come in during the January window, we have been almost a different team with the competition throughout the squad.
“A few of the boys, including myself, were maybe feeling like we were always going to start, as there wasn’t that depth.
“Since the new boys have come in, everyone in the team has had to go up that level in their performance. I think it has shown in the past few weeks that it has helped us massively.”
