Winger Shayden Morris spoke to the press after his equaliser earned Fleetwood Town an impressive draw against Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday afternoon.

Morris made an instant impact as a second-half substitute by scoring the equaliser on his first game back after a month-long spell on the sidelines.

Here’s what he had to say:

On the fans...

“I wasn’t expecting that reception when I came on, I was buzzing with that. The fans cheering my name is something I’ve dreamed of, especially the reception I got was just an amazing feeling for me coming back out there.

“That just gives me the confidence, so I know when I’ve got the ball, the players are behind me but the fans are also behind me. I feel like I can do anything with the ball. I know I can score goals from the wing and get assists as well. Obviously, I can do it in training but to do it out there just feels so good.”

On his goal...

“The first time I got the ball I put a cross in, so I thought the next time I get it I’m just going to go for it, and it came off. 

“When you’re out for so long you just get so many thoughts and so many imaginations of what you want to do when you’re back. So when I got the ball I already knew what I wanted to do because I’ve thought about it so many times while being out, so as soon as I got it I knew what to do with it - the celebrations were great.”
