The Ton moved back to the top of the table last weekend and face an in-form Livingston at Cappielow tomorrow.
The Morton boss said: "We were beaten 3-0 at home by Dumbarton a couple of weeks ago and it knocked us back on our heels.
"We went to Cowdenbeath and drew 1-1 and people were saying it was a bad result. In my eyes, it was a good result because it is a hard place to go.
"After the games over the Christmas period where we beat the teams closest to us, we were looking for a bit more.
"There is a lot of football still to be played and it will go up and down.
"Hopefully we will still be on the up rather than the down."
