Interviews

Alexander: It’s about the group and they have been superb

25 November 2017

The 26-year-old came off the bench in the second-half and scored both a free-kick and a goal of the season contender with his weaker right foot to see off the Iron’s promotion rivals.

Morris discussed how much the fans' support means to him, his return and his goals in an interview with iFollow Iron.

ON THE FANS’ SUPPORT…
JM: The fans have been great with me since I came in and to have them singing my name after being on the pitch for just 15 minutes is what you want. It’s what every player dreams of and I’m no different.

ON HIS RETURN…
JM: They were two really nice goals to score and most importantly the win keeps the run going. It was a good performance all round. I had a tight hamstring in the Bristol Rovers match so I came off as a precaution and missed a few games. However, it’s great to be back and coming into a winning team makes it even easier.

ON SCORING WITH HIS WEAKER FOOT…
JM: I don’t think that I’ve scored with my right-foot professionally. I might have done so in the youth team but I can’t remember it. I don’t use it much but I got a good swing around it to make it work.

ON HOW THOSE GOALS RANK AGAINST PREVIOUS ONES…
JM: Those two are definitely up there, especially the one with my right-foot. The fact that it was my right foot and that I came off the bench to score in my first game back made it great.

ON COMING BACK INTO A WINNING TEAM…
JM: Every time that I go onto the pitch I want to do well and help the team as much as I can. It was nice today to be able to do that.

ON HOW HE THOUGHT HE COULD CHANGE THE GAME…
JM: It looked quite tight. They are a good team and their league position suggests that. We’re in good form so it was always going to be tight but in the second-half a bit more space opened up which came to help me.

25 November 2017

ON HOW BIG IT WAS TO WIN AGAINST A PROMOTION RIVAL…
JM: It’s massive and it keeps the run going. Every game we go into, we want to win and this was no different. To do it against a team that is around you is even better. The lads did it against Bradford on Tuesday night which was a top performance and we followed it up today with this.

ON THE TEAM’S CONFIDENCE GOING INTO THE BIG MATCHES…
JM: You just have to take every game as it comes. On paper we have had two tough games in Charlton at home and Bradford away. They are two good teams and if you want to do well in this division we know how tough it is to do so. You’ve got to go and beat those teams around you and we have managed to do that.

ON THE PERFORMANCES IN HIS ABSENCE…
JM: We’ve had a good squad from day one. There’s always competition for places all over the pitch. If people miss out through injury or suspension then it’s up to the others to step up and everyone’s done that. I just think that it shows what a good group of lads we have here and their team spirit as well.

ON THE IRON’S CONFIDENCE HEADING INTO THE FA CUP MATCH AT DONCASTER…
JM: It’s a local derby again so it will be a great atmosphere there. It’s a big opportunity for us to do well and getting to the third round would be fantastic.
