Morris quick to heap praise on his teammates

14 March 2015

Winger netted his third league goal in as many games

Match winner Josh Morris was quick to heap praise on his teammates following their 1-0 win over Rochdale at Highbury this afternoon.

His goal in the 59th minute, his third in succession and seventh of the season, keep Town within touching distance of the top six, but Morris claimed the team are more important than any one individual.

He said: “It was a nice strike, but I’m not bothered about scoring. As long as we win the game that’s all that matters to me.

“I’ve scored a few so I thought why not hit it, obviously it went in so I’m pleased.

“The three points is more important than who scores. At the end of the day that’s all that counts.”

The Blackburn Rovers loanee scored in the corresponding fixture in December as Town won 2-0 at Spotland, and is now hoping the team can put a string of results together.

“After winning at Bramall Lane last weekend we knew we had a big week. We have three games and if we can go on a bit of a run it’s a great time to do it.

“We only want to concentrate on ourselves. We have another game Tuesday night which we have to concentrate on and hopefully we can go on a run.”

The 23-year-old was also full of praise for the returning Nathan Pond who replaced Stephen Jordan and collected the sponsors’ Man of the Match award.

“Pondy was immense, everyone was immense, they had to be. First half we weren’t at the races but we changed it at half-time. We came out in the second half with a great tempo and thought we deserved to win.”
