Josh Morris says he and his Scunthorpe teammates will be doing everything they can to get back to winning ways, following their home draw with Peterborough United.

Morris’ marvellous free kick on the stroke of half time looked to be enough for the three points, but Posh pegged back a near dominant United, to tie the game at 1-1.

However the 25-year-old was positive looking forward and, feels it’s important to respond in the right way, when Bury visit on Saturday.

Morris gave his assessment to The Iron PlayerHD after the game, and said: ”It was a disappointing way to end the game, we dominated for long periods and possibly should have had the game out of sight.

“It was a good ball (for Peterborough’s equaliser). If they go in from 30 yards and it goes in the top corner, you hold your hands up.

“It’s a frustrating result, but it’s now up to us to get back on the mark on Saturday.

"It will be another tough game, but we'll rest up now and look forward to Saturday and a positive result.”

The Iron’s top scorer started the year in the only way he knows how and, despite the strike being his first for nine games, Morris insisted the team always comes before personal glory.

"It was nice to end the little 'goal drought', but I've been getting assists as well and helping the team,” he stated.

"If I can create chances, someone else scores and we're winning, that's the main thing.”

“I’ll take each game as it comes, and it’d be nice to get on another run, and it was a nice goal to get myself going again.”

The left winger played out the match in a somewhat slightly unfamiliar territory, following illness to Harry Toffolo on the day of the game, but again, Morris stated he’s always more than willing to contribute to the team’s success, in whatever way that may be.

"I've played left-back before at Blackburn, but I was happy to play there to help the team out with Toffs being ill,” he declared.

“I enjoyed it there, I got quite a lot of the ball and a lot of space. I prefer playing higher up, but if i’m helping the team it’s fine with me.”
