For Dundee United, there isn’t much point in picking apart games like Saturday’s in terms of this season’s Championship.
Even if the rest of the teams who have still to come to Tannadice use Morton’s performance and result as a template, it won’t affect where the league trophy is going.
That race, if it ever was one, is over.
The pitiful title ‘challenge’ from others was summed up perfectly by United extending their lead at the top of the table on a day they had to rely on a late equaliser against one of the relegation-threatened sides.
No, everything that happens from now on has to be analysed in the context of the challenge that is coming up next year.
On that front, the weekend reaffirmed where Tony Asghar and Robbie Neilson will need to upgrade the team in the summer – game-changing players on the wing and in the number 10 position.
Away from home in the Premiership you can see the likes of Ian Harkes, Dillon Powers and Calum Butcher strangling the life out of games, edging a midfield arm-wrestle and securing 1-0s through Lawrence Shankland.
But at Tannadice it will be different.
You won’t see sides drop back quite as obviously as Morton did but the defensive discipline and structure of top flight teams will ensure the challenge they face is similar.
And that will be – if you’re going to break us down it will have to be with pace and skill out wide or subtlety in tight spaces through the middle.
Get those two transfers right in the close-season and this team will be elevated to top six Premiership level in one fell swoop.
