Match-winner Morris on Vale victory

14 November 2020

Match-winner Kieron Morris felt Tranmere Rovers were worthy winners at Vale Park despite trailing on more than one occasion in the match. 
 
Morris’ curling effort clinched all three points for the Whites in heroic fashion, scoring for the second match in succession for the Whites. 
 
Insisting that pushing for a game-deciding goal was always the team's intention, the Tranmere midfielder said: “We knew we had dominated the game, so towards the end we could push for that winner. That’s what we did and, thankfully, we got it.  
 
“It was a solid performance from the boys, you could see how everyone is playing with confidence now. I think we had 60% possession and it just shows that when we get on the ball and move it, we create opportunities to score goals and thankfully I scored the winner. 
 
“I always get told to say on the edge of the area when the ball is put into the opposition box, in case the ball comes out. That’s what happened there. I was composed and aimed for the top corner.” 
 
Saturday’s victory maintained Tranmere’s impressive run of form, moving the Whites up to 14thplace in the Sky Bet League Two standings. 
 
Morris is now demanding futher performances of this nature as Rovers aim to continue climbing the table. 
 
“It’s still early days and it’s a long-haul season. We’ve won four on the bounce now and we have to keep pushing, believing in ourselves and winning games,” expressed the 26-year-old. 
 
“Everyone knows that we’ve got the players and the ability in the team, it’s just getting that belief and we’ve got that now. You can see from today and the previous three games, it’s showing.  
 
“I’m liking this formation we’re playing with a diamond. When you play this formation, you have to play football. For me, all I want to do is get on the ball and play. It’s working out.”
