ST Mirren winger Lewis Morgan admits that the Buddies’ recent displays have not been good enough but he insists Saints can turn things around in the coming weeks.

Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to Queen of the South is Saints’ fifth league game without a win and they now sit bottom of the Championship table.

Morgan, who was St Mirren’s standout player at the Paisley 2021 Stadium, insists the manner in which Saints are conceding goals is a concern and something they have to rectify quickly.

However the 19-year-old is convinced that the Paisley side will soon turn the corner.

He said: “It’s really frustrating for all the boys. We keep giving away cheap goals and it is giving us too much to do.

“In the latter parts of games we always seem to be chasing it, it’s not good enough from us.

“We’re just going to need to keep working hard and hope it will turn for us.

“We can’t take our foot of the gas, we need to keep doing what we’re doing and keep putting in the effort and I’m sure it will turn for us.”

The home crowd were noticeably agitated at times on Saturday as some turned on manager Alex Rae. Captain Andy Webster was subbed in the second half to sarcastic cheers after he endured a torrid second half as Queens’ Stephen Dobbie threatened to run riot.

Morgan says the fans have the right to be upset as performances have not been up to scratch, but pleaded with the support to keep turning out to help the players out of their rut.

He added: “The performances we’ve put in haven’t been good enough. We just hope they can keep turning out in their numbers because they have been great.

“It does help a lot when we have a good turnout and they are pushing us on.”
