Three points more important than individual recognition for Morris

Striker reflects on Tuesday's win over Rochdale...

30 January 2020

Despite scoring the equaliser and picking up the Man of the Match award in Tuesday’s 2-1 win over Rochdale, Carlton Morris insists that winning games is all that matters to him.

Morris headed home from Jordan Houghton’s corner just four minutes into the second-half and was imperative in the move that earned Russell Martin’s side a stoppage-time penalty.

Following his impressive performance, Morris was named Man of the Match by Match Sponsors TSYS Managed Services, but it’s three points that the striker is happier with.

“I know it’s a cliché – but it’s always about the team for me,” Morris told the local media in his post-match interview. “We had some great individual performance out there like Alex Gilbey, Louis Thompson on his first start in I don't know how long.

“They were tremendous for the team there are a lot of things that go unnoticed, like willing runners, and the way we play allows for good individual performances - I'm just really enjoying my time here so far.”

The 24-year-old, who is on loan from Norwich City, added just how much he’s enjoying his football at Stadium MK and praised Russell Martin for his half-time team talk.

“We were moving the ball a bit too slow, but it wasn't us in the first half. The manager and staff made that very clear to us at half time. We needed to react and that's what we did. It's what good teams and good dressing rooms do. Coming out with that reaction ultimately won us the game.

“We did well in the second-half and just moved with more intensity. It was no surprise it resulted in a lot more chances on goal because when we move the ball with that quality, it opens it up for us and we're unlucky not to take a few more.”
