Morris: We were worthy of the points against Orient

12 January 2015

Gareth Evans' strike extended Town's unbeaten run

Josh Morris spoke of his delight to the Club’s media team after Town picked up their second consecutive away league win against Leyton Orient last Saturday.

Gareth Evans struck his second goal of the season with a cool finish after a neat knock down from Jamie Proctor, which moved the Cod Army up to ninth in League One.

It took Evans only 17 seconds into the second half to net, and the margin could have been greater as Town dominated for large parts in the first period.

Fleetwood picked up an impressive win away at Rochdale just over a fortnight ago before following that up with a draw against Swindon at Highbury which extended their unbeaten run.

The on-loan Blackburn Rovers midfielder stated after the game that the result reflected in the balance of play, and Town were worthy of their points.

He said: “I thought we were dominant throughout the game, especially in the first half where we probably could have been ahead, but it was a great finish from Gaz and a great three points.”

The midfielder went on to say that manager Graham Alexander did not have to tell the players much at the interval because they knew what they had to do.

“We just had to carry it on really. As I said, I thought we were dominant in the first half and probably should have been ahead but we weren’t.

“It was a great start to the second half from the lads, we were really sharp out of the blocks and it was a great finish.”

The result capped off a good week for Morris, who extended his stay at the Club until the end of the season after both sides reached an agreement.

“I’m delighted. I’m glad it got sorted sooner rather than later, I thought it would.

“It got sorted in time for today and it’s a great way to get started again.”
