Iron midfielder Josh Morris says the draw with Northampton Town comes with a tinge of frustration, but stated it’s a result the squad will move on from quickly.United had to settle for a point with the game against the Cobblers ending 1-1 and, in Morris’ eyes, the home side didn’t press on from a position of strength.
Speaking to The Iron PlayerHD, Morris said: “It’s obviously a disappointing result with us being at home.
“They did have a few chances, especially in the second half, where we took our foot off the gas a little bit.
“We made it harder for ourselves, compared to how things were in the first half, but like I said it’s a disappointing result in the end.”
He did concede though that taking one point is better than taking none at all, whilst adding the team will take the positives out of it ahead of next weekend’s home encounter with MK Dons.
“I think we maybe got a bit complacent when they went down to ten men and we went away from what we did in the first half, which got us our joy. It’s a point though, so we’ll take that and move on to Saturday,” he insisted.
“It’s still early days, so we’re not getting carried away. However it’s another point which helps us on our way. It would have been nice if it was three, but it wasn’t to be.”
On a personal note, things just keep getting better for the 25-year-old, as he took his overall tally to 13 for the campaign with a sumptuous free kick on the stroke of half time.
The goal capped off another superb week for Morris, who also collected his second player of the month award. He too paid tribute to the players around him, who he stated were a major part of his success.
“It was a nice one,” he stated.
“Obviously the first free kick got saved and then I thought I’d go the other side on the second one. It was nice for it to go in, but just a shame it couldn’t go towards three points.
“I’m delighted with it (the player of the month award). It’s down to the team mainly, but it’s nice to get the personal accolade as well, so long may that continue.”
The focus will now shift to Saturday’s clash with MK Dons, and Morris doesn’t expect things to get any easier.
Morris explained: “It’ll be another tough game (against MK Dons), they’re a good side and they obviously came down from the Championship last year.
“We know they’ll pass the ball well, but we’ll know what to expect, so we’ll do the work on the training ground this week and look forward to it.”
