Carlton: We gave ourselves an uphill battle

7 December 2020

Carlton Morris says that while MK Dons’ reaction to going behind on Saturday was impressive – the Dons shouldn't give opposition teams an early start.

Dion Charles gave Accrington Stanley the lead at The Wham Stadium just eight minutes into the tie.

The Dons reacted well though, with Accrington keeper Toby Savin producing a number of impressive saves to keep the hosts ahead at the break.

“We've had problems conceding early goals,” Morris told iFollow MK Dons following the full-time whistle. “We've been given so much information on how to counter it but we've shot ourselves in the foot and made it an uphill battle.

“We had a good reaction before half time, with their players scrambling to get in at half-time because we were banging on the door. We got the goal back but we had more sloppy defending and individual errors – those things are costing us.”

Morris netted a sensational individual goal to level the scoring, and despite the impressive nature of his goal, the striker admits he’d rather three points.

“The goal means nothing really because it was for nothing and that hurts.

“It's good to know we've got the ability to fight back. I've been in teams before when you go behind, heads drop and it's the end of the world. We have heart and desire in this team and quality to get back in games. It's frustrating that this one got away from us.”
