Kudus Oyenuga says that the secret to Morton’s success lies in the unrivalled team spirit that manager Jim Duffy has created at the club.

The striker climbed off the bench to bag a vital winner away at Falkirk last week, a victory that moved the ‘Ton level on points with the Bairns in second place in the Championship.

It was the latest eyebrow-raising triumph in a remarkable campaign so far for Jim Duffy’s men, and if they avoid defeat against Dunfermline today, they will make it a year unbeaten at home.

Oyenuga reckons that their success is all down to the tight-knit nature of the Cappielow dressing room.

“I’ve been at a lot of clubs in my career,” Oyenuga said. “But I’ve never experienced a dressing room as close as this one before.

“All of the lads are just great guys. From the captain all the way down, everyone just gets on so well and we all want to do our best for one another.

“The manager has created a special atmosphere, and he never lets us get too carried away.

“We obviously know what people are saying about us and how well we are doing, but he just keeps our feet on the ground and keeps us focused on the next game.

“We aren’t even thinking about the playoffs, let alone automatic promotion or anything like that, all we are thinking about is Dunfermline tomorrow.

“The gaffer has done an amazing job here, and we as players have bought into what he is trying to do. So far, it has worked well for us, and we all just want to keep that going.”

The 24-year-old has been hampered by a series of injuries this season, meaning that his own contribution on the field of play has been limited mainly to appearances from the bench.

He feels that he is now ready though to play a central role in the run-in to the end of the season, and he is praying that his luck has finally turned.

“It has been incredibly frustrating for me at times this season,” he said.

“When you are on the bench, all you want is a chance to show what you can do, but on the couple of occasions where our other strikers have been out this year, I’ve ended up getting injured too.

“That was devastating because there was a real chance there for me to get a run of games, and sometimes you think that if you had

Oyenuga fits that old joke of a player who has had more clubs than Jack Nicklaus perfectly, but the much-travelled frontman he thinks he has finally found a home at Morton, his fourth club in Scotland alone.

After starting out at Tottenham Hotspur as a youngster, he never thought he would be plying his trade in Inverclyde, but he is desperate to put down roots in the area with his young family.

“Football is a strange profession,” he said. “You never know where you might end up, and the reality for a lot of players like myself is that you end up moving clubs quite frequently.

“That’s not ideal when you have a young daughter like I do, so hopefully I can stick around here for a while longer.

“My contract is up in the summer, so I am just desperate to get a chance to show that I am worth another offer.

“I love it at the club and all I want to do is help them to success this season, and fingers crossed, I might earn a new deal along the way.”
