MORRIS: "I THOUGHT WE BATTLED WELL"

17 August 2016

Speaking after United’s away victory over AFC Wimbledon, midfielder Josh Morris believes it’s a huge result for the club.

The Iron were 2-1 victors at the Cherry Red Records Stadium, and Morris was pleased with the way the visitors dug in late on into the game.

Morris told The Iron PlayerHD: “It’s a massive win, a massive three points.

“I thought we played really well in the first half and obviously got the two goals. In the second half we knew what was going to come and I thought we battled well.

“If you’d have said the scoreline would have been 2-0 at half time and we’d go onto win the game, we’d have definitely taken it.

It’s now three wins out of four in all competitions for Graham Alexander’s side, and even though it’s still early days, the 24-year-old says it’s fantastic for confidence going forward.

“We’re only three games in, and obviously there’s a long way to go still, but the sooner you get the points and the goals on the board it helps and it’s a massive confidence boost,” he stated.

“It’s a tough place to come, especially with Wimbledon being fresh from the momentum of coming up. So we had to make sure we saw the game out and got the three points.

“I think if you came here in the middle of the season and came away with three points, it’d be a massive result, and this will keep the momentum going now.

Next up for Morris and his teammates is a home clash with Gillingham, a game which the former Bradford City man feels will be a difficult test, but one which the squad is certainly up for.

“We’ve another big game on Saturday, which we’ll now have to turn our attention too. So we’ll recover and go again against Gillingham,” he added.

“You saw last year how well they started. They’re a good team and they’ve signed some good, experienced players.

“However, we’re back at home, and we’ll be looking to keep the momentum going."
