Morris reacts to Boxing Day defeat

26 December 2019

Tranmere Rovers midfielder Kieron Morris says he and his team-mates must take responsibility for their performance after a 4-2 defeat away at Burton Albion on Boxing Day.

Micky Mellon’s men were beaten at the Pirelli Stadium despite going in level at half-time when Morgan Ferrier cancelled out Scott Fraser’s opener for Nigel Clough’s Brewers.

But strikes from Lucas Akins and Liam Boyce’s double, either side of Morris’ goal, saw Rovers suffer a loss on their travels in Staffordshire.

And following the full-time whistle, Morris offered up his thoughts to the local media.

Morris said: “They were a physical and big side, and they did set the tempo and that’s where we lost the game.

“As a whole team, we have to take responsibility and today we weren’t good enough and we have to go back to the training ground and practice.

“As soon as you let a goal in, heads drop and we were chasing the game, but we got goals back and started fighting but when they made it 4-2, it is hard to get back into the game.

“When we got to 3-2, everyone gained confidence, and everyone pushed forward. I had a shot and the keeper made a really good save, and if that goes in, it goes to 3-3 and it changes everything.

“But then they went up and got a fourth, and it killed the game off.

“Defensively we haven’t been good enough, and it’s something that we have to work on as a team, we need to work on it in training, analyse it and look at the video and go again.”
