Saturday’s encounter with Fleetwood Town will see a return to one of midfielder Josh Morris’ former clubs, but he states his focus is on ensuring United carry on their winning start to the season.

Morris enjoyed two loan spells under current Iron boss Graham Alexander at the Highbury Stadium, and that’s where the 24-year-old hopes he and his teammates can pick up another three points from.

Speaking to The Iron PlayerHD, Morris said: “It’s a tight pitch, but it’s a nice pitch. So, hopefully if the conditions are good we can carry on our good form, play some good football, and get the three points we need.

“Obviously everyone’s happy with the two wins which we’ve had, and that’s all we can control. Saturday will be another tough game, and Tuesday night’s a difficult one too (at AFC Wimbledon).

“You’ve got to concentrate game by game. There’s a lot of games in this league, so hopefully we can get the three points on Saturday."

Reflecting on his start to life at Glanford Park, the former Blackburn Rovers man says he’s embraced the challenge, and acclimatised really quickly.

“I’ve really enjoyed it. Pre-season was good - I settled in really well and the lads were good, we got on really well,” he revealed.

“It was obviously nice to get the win last week, along with the goal and hopefully we can kick on against Fleetwood."

United go into the clash with the Cod Army on the back of an extra time victory over Notts County in the EFL Cup - a victory the midfielder believed the home side thoroughly deserved.

“It was obviously a tough game. They came with a gameplan and that was to frustrate us for long periods, which they did," he said.

"However, we knew what to expect and we did well to get the result in the end.

“I think you’ve got to be patient at times, and we had a few chances which on another day we could have taken earlier. We didn’t, but we’ve got the fitness to keep going for the 120 minutes, and I think you could see by the end that we deserved to be on top.

“That’s why we do all of the fitness work we do. The lads have worked hard over pre-season, and we’re in good shape to carry on, which showed with 120 minutes not being an issue for us."
