Morris reacts after Newport draw

6 April 2019

Midfielder Kieron Morris was satisfied as Tranmere Rovers earned a goalless draw away at Newport County to keep up the promotion pursuit in Sky Bet League Two.

Micky Mellon’s side had to settle for a share of the spoils at Rodney Parade but put in a spirited performance on their travels against Michael Flynn’s Exiles.

Going closest in the contest through Mark Ellis, Rovers remain four points off the top three automatic promotion places ahead of back-to-back home fixtures as they welcome MK Dons and Forest Green to Prenton Park.

And Morris reflected on the display in South-East Wales, with the on-loan Walsall man pleased with the shift that Rovers put in.

Morris said: “They are a good team, they are a physical team, they are really direct and put you on the back foot, so we are pleased to get the draw today.

“It’s one of those games that was really direct, the ball was in the air a lot and you have to get it down, it was one of those games where you have to try and stretch it a bit, like what they did to us, but we’ll go again next weekend.

“We’ll take it (the point), they are a good team, they are physical so it was hard to break them down, the pitch as well wasn’t the best, it was hard to get the ball down so we are pleased with the point and we’ll take it.

“Our back-to-back home games, we’re good at home, especially with the crowd so that gives us confidence pushing forward.”
