Morgan’s Doing Alright

Lewis Morgan’s performances against both Bristol Rovers and Plymouth have impressed the gaffer and the player himself is happy with the way things are going for him since joining on loan. He said: “I’ve come down here to play games, and I fully back myself that I can bring something to the team. I thought I did well in the first half on Saturday. Obviously, the game changed a wee bit in the second half, the manager changed the system, but I created the first goal and it’s important to me that I’m adding those assists and goals to my game. I’ve come down from Scotland and I’ve not played as much football as I would want this year, so it was always going to take a wee while for me to get going. I think I’m getting back to that match sharpness now. I’m feeling sharp. I’m someone who likes to be direct, so it’s important to get games in my legs and minutes in my legs, and I’ll only keep improving for that. The lads knew we could hurt them from the wide areas. Me and Aiden got a lot of the ball, and we were able to create chances. On another day, we would probably have taken more of them. We were really free-flowing in the first half and probably should have added to the one goal that we got. We went into the second period, and teams are always going to have spells in games, but we were resolute and compact, and we weathered that. Then in the end, our quality showed. There’s a core of the team that’s stayed the same, but there’s also a couple of positions that have been up for grabs. I’m one that has come in, and I’m really focused on making sure I keep my place in the team. If I can get an extended run of games, I know I’ll keep improving. Hopefully, we can keep going in the same direction. That’s three wins on the spin now and hopefully we’ll be able to continue that. I know what a winning mentality brings, and I know what happens when you win three games on the spin and you’re getting a good run going. When that happens, you’re going into games with your confidence flowing, and more often than not, you’ll keep on building on those positive results. I’ve seen it up the road, when you go on runs like this, you keep on rolling. You just have to make sure you keep turning up and keep winning games.”

Jack Ross added. “He was good, he was good last week when he came on. I have a close relationship with him anyway, he has trained really well over the last couple of weeks and he always backs himself and believes he is good enough to play but he has to show that all the time and against Bristol and in the first half showed what he is capable of. He is a good player, no doubt about that and the other players recognise that. His contribution was good. Lewis has played more of his career on the left, he is very two footed. He usually is on the left but we obviously have a player on that side of the pitch that is in very good form.”
