Josh Morris: We are looking forward to the challenge

23 February 2018

Winger Josh Morris is confident the Iron can still achieve their aims for the season, with 12 matches remaining.

He stated that United are striving to get back to keeping clean sheets, starting at Bristol Rovers this Saturday. 

The 26-year-old spoke to iFollow Iron ahead of the away contest. 

ON THE 2-2 DRAW AGAINST NORTHAMPTON… 

JM: It was disappointing to drop points at home, but it is a long season with some tough games coming up. It is up to us now to make sure we have a response on Saturday. We conceded poor goals but we showed spirit to get back into the game. Being at home, you would expect us to win and we want to win every game we go into. 

ON BRISTOL ROVERS… 

JM: It is a tough place to go. We went there last year around the same time. It is always a tough game so it is up to us to set the standard and make sure we put in the performance to get the result. 

ON WANTING TO TAKE THE LEAD IN THE MATCH… 

JM: It didn’t help, but we are trying to address that. If we can score the first goal, it will give us a massive belief to go forward and win the game. When we concede first, it is obviously more difficult to turnaround. We are scoring goals, we just need to try and keep clean sheets. Earlier in the season we had a good run of clean sheets. We need to try and get back to that. 

ON TRAINING THIS WEEK… 

JM: It has been good and have been working hard this week. We had a chat after the game on Saturday and we know what we need to address. We have been working towards that this week. 

ON BELIEVING THE IRON CAN STILL WIN PROMOTION… 

JM: We’re fifth and have been up there all season. Everyone has little dips in the season. There are still 12 games to go and a lot of points to play for. It is up to us now; the challenge is set and we know what to do to get to where we want to be. We are looking forward to it. 

ON HIS VERSATILITY… 

JM: I enjoy playing out wide and that’s where I have played most of football over the last two years. I love playing in that position, it gives you more freedom to go wherever I can and get involved in the game. The goals have come back a little bit, but wherever I need to play I will try and do my best for the team. You are a bit more restricted in central midfield and have to do more of a job for the team. 

ON THE IRON FANS MAKING THE TRIP TO BRISTOL… 

JM: The more, the merrier. The support away from home is great. It is a big plus to us when we come out to warm up and see the fans there. It is a trip we are looking forward to and full credit to them.
